High-tone or hypertonic pelvic floor muscles form part of a range of pelvic floor dysfunctions and can affect both women and men. Patients can experience pelvic floor myofascial pain, as well as bladder and bowel symptoms. In this lecture we will discuss why and how hypertonic pelvic floor muscles contribute to these symptoms and give attendees a better understanding of the anatomy, physiology and function / dysfunction of an overactive pelvic floor.

This lecture will cover the following:

  • A short revision of pelvic floor dysfunction
  • An overview of the hypertonic pelvic floor and the type of symptoms a patient might experience
