Understanding Your Pelvic Floor
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles and supportive tissues that line the base of your pelvis. These muscles play a crucial role in supporting abdominal organs, maintaining continence, promoting sexual function, and stabilizing your core. But due to various factors such as childbirth, aging, obesity, and surgery, the pelvic floor muscles can weaken and lose their functionality, leading to various health issues and discomfort.
