Lifestyle modifications and self-care practices can complement professional treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction. Here are some tips:

1. Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight can help reduce stress on the pelvic floor muscles and improve overall pelvic health.

2. Drink an adequate amount of water for general health, but be mindful of caffeine intake, as it can irritate the bladder and contribute to urinary symptoms.

3. Consume a diet rich in fiber to promote regular bowel movements and prevent constipation, which can strain the pelvic floor.

4. Maintaining good posture to support the alignment of the spine and pelvis. Poor posture can contribute to pelvic floor dysfunction.
