Pelvic floor problems are known to affect one in three women and one in 10 men. The symptoms can range from loss of bladder and/or bowel control to pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic pain.
Current research suggests that around 32% of women and 13% of men in the UK have a bladder control problem and 11% of the population have a bowel control problem. Also, there are many women and men who have problems with intercourse, which may be related to other medical problems already being treated. For some women intercourse can be too painful (dyspareunia), whilst some men are unable to achieve or maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction).
Sadly a large percentage of these adults suffer in silence, not aware that they can be helped.
At Progress, the Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Clinic offers a holistic approach to managing and often resolving these problems.
Post-operative rehabilitation is also available for those patients who have undergone gynaecology, urology or colorectal surgery.
