Pelvic floor dysfunction is most common in women and we offer one of the few programs in Greater Waterbury that can help. No surgery is required.
Your pelvic floor is a group of muscles found in the floor, the base of your pelvis. Pelvic floor dysfunction is a common condition where you’re unable to correctly relax and coordinate the muscles in your pelvic floor to urinate or to have a bowel movement or pain during sexual intercourse.
