What is PELVIC FLOOR?

The” Pelvic Floor” refers to a group of floor muscles that attach to the front, back and side

Of the Pelvic bone and sacrum (the large fused bone at the bottom of the spine, just above the

tailbone). Like a sling or hammock, these muscles support the organs in the pelvis, including the

bladder, uterus or prostate, and rectum. They also wrap around your urethra, rectum, and vagina

(in women). Coordinated contracting these muscles controls bowel and bladder functions – like the

pelvic floor must relax to allow for urination, bowel movements, and, in women sexual intercourse.
