Pelvic (floor) disorders

Men, women and children can have problems due to a malfunctioning pelvic floor. There may be a too weak, too tight and / or inadequate coordination of the pelvic floor. The pelvis, ligaments, pelvic floor and pelvic organs interact with each other. A disorder in the pelvis can lead to a complaint in the pelvic floor and vice versa.
