Opening Dec. 9, 2020, the UT Physicians Pelvic Floor Clinic is the first of its kind in Houston. It’s a clinic dedicated to the treatment of pain associated with the pelvic floor.
Pelvic floor pain is quite common and involves muscle dysfunction in the area of the body commonly referred to as the core, and can include muscles anywhere between the belly button and the hips. Men and women can suffer with this type of pain.
Proper function of the muscles of the pelvic floor is necessary for:
- Storage and release of urine and feces
- Support of pelvic organs
- Hip and trunk movement
- Sexual function
Life events and lifestyle factors can cause pelvic floor instability, including:
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Traumatic injuries (e.g., a car accident)
- Neurological disorders
- Being overweight
- Advancing age
