Bowel movements are enabled by contracting and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor dysfunction is when you lose the ability to correctly contract (tighten) and relax the muscles in the pelvic floor to have a bowel movement.

Bowel Dysfunction Disorders

  • Constipation: Difficulty emptying the bowels.
  • Dyssynergic pelvic floor muscle: Difficulty relaxing or coordinating the pelvic floor muscle to allow defecation.
  • Painful bowel movements.
  • Fecal incontinence: Inability to control bowel movements (involuntary leakage).
  • Irritable bowel syndrome: Including lower abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and constipation or diarrhea.
  • Pelvic organ prolapse: One or more of the pelvic organs descend out of their normal position into the vaginal canal.

  • Slow transit time.
  • Infrequent bowel movements (often less than twice a week).
  • Incomplete bowel emptying.
  • Involuntary bowel leakage
  • Abdominal discomfort.
  • Pain with the evacuation of bowels.

I feel very fortunate to have found Rosie. With her help and guidance, I have been able to control my overactive bladder and to avoid medication and or botox treatments recommended by a urologist. Rosie gave a very thorough initial interview and exam to help determine the best treatment. She was always very professional, at the same time very pleasant and approachable.
