Acupuncture for Pelvic Floor Muscles in Portland OR

What is the Pelvic Floor?

The pelvic floor is comprised of the muscles and ligaments that are attached to the pelvis, supporting the abdomen. These muscles are responsible for bladder and bowel movement control.

What are the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction?

One in five people will experience a pelvic floor dysfunction as a result of weak pelvic muscles and connective tissue. In women, these are some of the common conditions:

  • Endometriosis
  • Painful periods
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Diffuse pain in the glutes
