What is the pelvic floor?



The pelvic floor is a group of muscles, with a deep and superficial layer.  


Their functions include:

  • sexual function
  • urination/defecation
  • work with other muscle groups to provide core stability and hold organs in place 


Just like other muscles, the pelvic floor can develop weakness and trigger points, causing pain and dysfunction.  

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic Floor physical therapy is a specialization within the physical therapy field, focusing on pelvic floor dysfunctions.  


These may include:

  • bladder/bowel/sexual dysfunctions
  • pelvic pain conditions
  • prenatal/postpartum conditions
  • painful scars


Other related orthopedic issues such as sacroiliac joint pain and low back pain.
