Constipation, Straining with Bowel movements, or Rectal pain:

Like any other muscle in your body, the tension of the pelvic floor muscles can be abnormally high. This is a form of pelvic floor dysfunction and can contribute to rectal pain and constipation. Physical therapy to address the cause of this tension and restore normal tone can be very effective in alleviating these conditions. Treatment may include muscle relaxation training through biofeedback, electrical stimulation, myofascial release, internal soft tissue mobilization of involved muscles, as well as education in adequate fiber and fluid intake, and proper evacuation techniques.
