Pelvic Floor Disorder


Pelvic Floor Disorders

Pelvic floor disorders (PFD) are a result of a traumatic injury or the weakening of the pelvic floor, which is comprised of muscles, ligaments, connective tissue, and nerves. According to the University of Chicago, pelvic floor disorders occur when the "sling" or "hammock" that supports the pelvic organs becomes weak or damaged. The three most common types of pelvic floor disorders (PFD) are urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse.
