The pelvis is the bony structure that lies between the legs and spine. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles forming the base of the pelvis. These muscles, which include the levator ani muscles such as the pubococcygeus, puborectalis, and iliococcygeus, support the organs in the pelvis, help control urination and bowel movements, and play a role in sexual health and pleasure. Additionally, they are integral to posture support and core stability.
However, these muscles can be damaged after childbirth or weakened due to aging and menopause. This can lead to pelvic floor dysfunction, which includes conditions like urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and chronic pain syndromes that can significantly impact a woman's quality of life.
