The Importance of Pelvic Floor Health

Dr. DeWitt shares the crucial role of the pelvic floor in our overall health and well-being. The pelvic floor, a hammock-like structure of muscles at the base of the pelvis, supports our organs, aids in sexual function, and controls bladder and bowel movements. As we age, it becomes even more important to prioritize pelvic floor health to maintain a vibrant and fulfilling life.

Starting the Journey

If you’re experiencing pelvic floor issues, Dr. DeWitt advises seeking out a pelvic floor specialist. Start by asking your primary care doctor or OB/GYN for recommendations. You can also visit and enter your zip code to find pelvic floor therapists in your area. Remember, advocating for your own health is essential, so don’t hesitate to ask questions and find the right specialist for you.

Addressing Habits and Lifestyle

Dr. DeWitt emphasizes the significance of addressing habits and lifestyle choices when it comes to pelvic floor health. It’s not just about doing Kegel exercises; it’s about making small tweaks to our everyday routines. For example, avoiding the habit of peeing “just in case” and learning proper bladder habits can have a significant impact. Breathing exercises, hydration, and nutrition also play a role in maintaining a healthy pelvic floor.

Mens Pelvic Floor Health

Men often struggle with discussing pelvic floor issues due to societal expectations and pride. However, it’s crucial for men to understand that they can also benefit from pelvic floor therapy. Dr. DeWitt encourages men to research online and educate themselves about pelvic floor health. If experiencing issues, it’s essential to consult with a specialist who can provide guidance tailored to their specific needs.
