What is Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy?
Pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that extend from the pubic bone to the tailbone. These muscles form a sling between the legs and are responsible for supporting the low back, hip joints and pelvic organs (bladder and rectum in men, bladder, uterus and rectum in women). They play a very important role in urination, bowel function and sexual function. Just like other muscles, they can become too weak, too tight or injured.
