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.
