Women undergone cesarean section may experience persistent pain or dysfunction. A therapist knows how to normalize the tight tissue and eliminate trigger points with therapy techniques.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is uncontrolled urination or undesired leakage of urine. There are different types of urinary incontinence, including:

  1. Stress incontinence. This occurs when there is increased intra-abdominal pressure and the pelvic-floor muscles do not have the control to maintain continence. Those with stress incontinence leak urine during a physical activity, such as playing a sport, or simply laughing or sneezing.

  2. Urge incontinence. People with urge incontinence can experience a sudden, strong need to pass urine, and leak before reaching the bathroom.

  3. Mixed incontinence. Some people experience both stress and urge incontinence.

  4. Functional incontinence. Even without an intense urge to urinate, people with functional incontinence may leak urine on the way to the bathroom.

  5. Urinary frequency. Some people feel the need to empty the bladder frequently throughout the day and more than once during the night.

Pelvic floor dysfunction

Pelvic floor dysfunction is abnormal functioning of the pelvic floor. The following conditions may occur as a result of pelvic floor dysfunction:

  1. Pelvic organ prolapse

  2. Sensory and emptying abnormalities of the lower urinary tract

  3. Sexual dysfunction

  4. Chronic pain syndromes
