The Relationship Between Your Nervous System and Pelvic Floor Muscles

Did you know your nervous system has a direct influence on the way your pelvic floor muscles function? In this video, Charisse Balance, a San Francisco-based pelvic floor physical therapist, discusses our nervous system, including what it does, how it affects our pelvic floor muscles, and how that connection can sometimes lead to urinary incontinence. 

If you are experiencing unexplained bladder leakage, it may have to do with your nervous system and how you process stress. Fortunately, pelvic floor dysfunction that leads to urinary incontinence is a treatable issue if you can work closely with a professional to understand the causes and the best course of treatment.
