Pelvic Floor Dysfunction - Things You Should Know About it

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction - Things You Should Know About it

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles in your pelvic area. These muscles support the organs in your pelvis like a sling. The organs in this area include the bladder, uterus (women), prostate (men) and rectum (the area at the end of the large intestine where your body stores solid waste). By contracting and relaxing these muscles, you control your bowel and bladder movements.

What is pelvic floor dysfunction?

When you are unable to control the muscles in your pelvic floor to have a bowel movement, it is called pelvic floor dysfunction. People with pelvic floor dysfunction contract these muscles rather than relax them. Because of this, they cannot have a bowel movement or they have an incomplete one.

It is important to be aware of the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction as there is no comprehensive list of causes. However, it can be said that traumatic injuries to the pelvic area seems to have a rather higher preponderance among the causes of pelvic floor dysfunction, which is also known as PFD. While giving birth to a child is an experience that is life changing, the potential downside is that it can be one of the causes of pelvic floor dysfunction in women!

Other symptoms include feeling the need to urinate often and then finding the process to be quite painful. Constipation which occurs in spite of a diet, which contains enough roughage is a sign, as well, that it is about time that a person should schedule an appointment with the doctor.

Medication is a possible solution and is usually in the form of a muscle relaxant of a low intensity. However, it is great for a person who has the misfortune of having pelvic floor dysfunction to know that there are solutions which are completely bereft of the need of any form of medication!

Cure for Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Reducing the effects of pelvic floor dysfunction can be quite simple, really. Warm baths and some kegel exercises are suggested on a subjective basis are quite common. This is a process called biofeedback.

Biofeedback aims to retrain the pelvic floor so that there is far better functioning. The success of this method is well known to a specialist, it has vastly improved the pelvic floor dysfunction conditions of more than 75% of the patients significantly!

The method works by observing the workings of the pelvic floor and then providing feedback regarding its coordination as it expands and contracts. Some of the many things which make this method truly great are that it is non-invasive and non-medical. As a matter of fact, taking into due account its success rate, people should really give it a shot before they try medication or surgery.

Surgery

Surgery is said to be effective in the case of rectocele. Nevertheless, this is the last resort as it is always better to sort out such problems sans having to resort to surgery. Multidisciplinary approaches which involve fields such as psychology are good options. Pelvic floor dysfunction is something that is a pain to have, but it really need not be!

Ayurvedic doctor says my naadi shows body stiffness with the rest being fine. What are the reasons for this suddenly. Kindly help.

Ayurveda, Delhi
Ayurvedic doctor says my naadi shows body stiffness with the rest being fine. What are the reasons for this suddenly....
Home remedies for arthritis: (body stiffness) Internal remedies: Dashamula Kashayam – Decoction of 10 roots relieves pain, swelling and stiffness. The coarse powder of Dashamula is readily available in the Ayurveda herbal stores or pharmacies. 10 grams of the coarse powder is boiled with 160 ml of water until 40 ml remains. The filtrate is taken hot. It is given 2-3 times in a day before food. Devadaru Kashayam – Roots and bark of Devadaru (Cedrus deodara), 10 grams is boiled with 160 ml of water until ¼ of it remains (40 ml). The filtrate is taken hot, 2-3 times a day half an hour before food. Erandamula Kashayam – Decoction of roots of castor plant is highly effective in osteoarthritis. It is prepared in the same way as mentioned in Dashamula Kashayam and taken in the same dose. Castor oil – Edible castor oil in the dose of 10-25 ml (on the recommendation of Ayurvedic doctor) can be taken at bed time mixed with hot milk or with decoction of roots of castor plant. Sesame – Take 1 tsp black sesame seeds and crush them. Dip them in 100 ml of warm water and allow overnight. Mix them well and consume it first thing in the morning. Cinnamon – Mix 1tsp cinnamon powder in 1 tsp honey. Take it on empty stomach every morning. Asthishrunkala (Cissus quadrangularis) – Medicated ghee prepare with this drug is taken orally in doses of 10grams mixed in hot milk early in the morning. The juice of the plant can be given in 10 ml dose with ghee in equal quantity. Macerated stem of the fresh plant is used for application over painful parts Babul: Bark powder or seed powder of Babul is given in 3-5 grams dose with 1 spoon honey twice daily, half an hour after food Lashunadi Kalka: Paste of equal parts of Garlic (paste of 2 cloves), Lac (2 grams approximately), honey (1 spoon) and sugar (1 spoon) is given mixed in ghee (1 spoon) Arjuna twak churna: Powder of bark of Terminalia arjuna (3-5 grams) is given along with a cup of milk. External remedies for osteo arthritis: Apply required amounts of lukewarm castor oil or sesame oil on the afflicted joint and rub gently in clockwise direction for 10-15 minutes. Take a hot water bath after 1 hour. Alternately salt water fomentation (heat with cloth dipped in salt water) or fomentation with heated salt tied in a cloth relieves pain and swelling. Add 5-10 grams of camphor to 1 cup of mustard oil. Heat the oil until camphor dissolves completely. Gently massage the joints with lukewarm oil. This reduces pain and inflammation and stiffness. It enhances blood supply to the joints. Shatadhauta Ghrita: Ghee processed (washed) with medicinal herbs (their decoctions) for 100 times is mixed with Shali pishti (rice flour) and applied over the painful joints osteo arthritis of spine - back Osteoarthritis – Disease review, Modern perspective Causes and Risk Factors – The primary cause of OA is damage from mechanical stress with insufficient self repair by the joints. Sources of this stress are as mentioned below: Misalignments of bones caused by congenital or pathogenic causes Mechanical injury Excess body weight Loss of strength in the muscles supporting a joint Impairment of peripheral nerves leading to sudden or uncoordinated movements Exercise (including running in the absence of injury) and cracking the knuckles have not been found to be risk factors Primary risk factors: Hereditary basis – OA is found to have a greater prevalence among siblings and identical twins Genetic factors – contributes towards variation in susceptibility towards OA Sex – Women are more likely to develop OA Age – Older age increases the OA Evolution of human ancestors into bipeds led to changes in pelvis, hip joint and spine which led to increased risk of OA History of previous joint injury and obesity (especially wrt knees) is a risk factor for OA. Correlation with obesity has been observed for other non-weight bearing joints also. Changes in sex hormone levels (OA is more prevalent among post-menopausal women than among men of the same age). A study of mice found natural female hormones to be protective while injections of the male hormone dihydro-testosterone reduced protection. Yoga for OA – Virabhadrasana (Warrior pose) – Baddha Konasana (Butterfly pose) – Dandasana (Staff pose) – Padangushtasana (Big Toe Pose) – Setu bandha sarvangasana (Bridge pose) – Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward facing dog pose) – Ardha chandrasana (Half moon pose) – Uttanasana (Forward bending pose) – Utthita Hasta Padangushtasana (Extended hand to big toe pose) – Utthita Parshvakonasana (Extended Side Angle Pose) – Hatha Yoga – Most forms of Yoga in the west can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha refers to the practise of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word Hatha can be translated as ‘wilful’ of ‘forceful’ or the yoga of activity, and as ‘sun’ (ha) and ‘moon’ (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind and spirit in preparation for meditation.

What are the best source of proteins for vegetarians for weight loss and muscle gain?

What are the best source of proteins for vegetarians for weight loss and muscle gain?
It is a false assumption that eating high protein diet will reduce fat and increase muscle. Every gram of protein adds 4 calories which is equal to carbs. If you want to reduce weight you have to cut down all forms of calories from carbs/oils/proteins and balance your daily calories. Some natural protein from Dal's/beans/egg etc will help you by giving you more fullness after meals, which can help in weight reduction.

Scientists have observed that aterovastin is of no help. They said taking aterovastin in cholesterol is waste of time even they said it increses the risk of heart attack. Its our fallacy the pherma companies suppresses this kind of research result for their benefits. Soo you come across the truth. Only by proper homeopathic treatment your blood cholesterol and triglycerides will b lower. We have soo mny medicines to lower this thing. U need to avoid the fatty food. Use oil 750 ml per head per month.in which 3 part will b musturd oil 2 part will b rice bran or soya oil. Walk everyday for 40-45 mins briskly it is very much essential. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate for your treatment purposes.

Best is to do combination of Jogging + Aerobics + Stretching exercises. In addition you can do freehand exercises like push ups and abs exercises... Do this for 60 mins everyday... This will help you to reduce fat / belly and also give you a toned and trim look.
