Anal fissure and Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Postby dmcff » 21 May 2018, 09:04

As someone who is currently receiving biofeedback treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction, I found this recent survey (PDF) by Leiden University Medical Center for Proctology interesting. In particular, the survey's conclusion:

Pelvic floor dyssynergia was found in a large percentage of the patients presenting with anal fissure. We hypothesise that pelvic floor examination and pelvic floor physiotherapy may be important in the treatment of chronic anal fissure.
