The pelvic floor is the foundation of the core, the place that gives the body needed stability in order to have functional mobility. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles shaped like a bowl that reaches from the tailbone to the pubic bone and across both hips.
This area also happens to be an extremely protective and emotional area of our bodies as it contains openings. In females, these muscles contribute to bowel, bladder, and sexual function; however, it is more than that. This area is responsible for being a solid foundation and supporting our bodies both above and below it. If the pelvic floor is not solid, strong, and mobile, the rest of our spine will have to compensate, leading to pain and dysfunction through the upper back, neck, jaw, and even cause headaches.
Treating the pelvic floor, an area that is often overlooked by healthcare professionals, along with adjacent structures can help treat a variety of conditions including chronic low back pain, hip pain, pelvic pain, sciatica, urinary frequency, constipation, incontinence, prolapse, sexual pain, pregnancy and postpartum pain, diastasis recti, bowel and bladder dysfunction, and other pelvic issues.
