Pelvic floor muscles are the most important muscles a woman has - yet they are also the most neglected.

Pelvic floor muscle strength is required for control of a woman's most intimate body functions.

If these muscles are neglected they gradually soften and lose their tone, just like any other muscle in the body.

And if these muscles weaken and sag, this can lead to prolapse, wetting, difficulties with bowel function, inability to wear tampons and discomfort during intercourse.

Pelvic floor problems affect 38 per cent of women but are often shrugged off as being part of the package of childbirth and ageing.

But they are not normal, should not be accepted and are not inevitable. The majority of these problems can be overcome or greatly minimised through expert assessment, evaluation, education and treatment.

The symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction are not only embarrassing but can decrease self-confidence, reduce participation in physical activities, limit social outings, and cause great compromise to the quality of a woman's life.
