The pelvic floor plays an essential role in the correct location of the internal organs, the smooth operation of the urinary and gastrointestinal tracts, and the provision of sexual and reproductive functions. Soft tissues (muscles, fascia, and ligaments) support the pelvic floor organs. Pelvic floor disorders and problems are characterized by the weakening of the tissues that support the pelvic floor, which affects the biomechanics of the pelvic floor organs.
Pelvic floor work may accompany physical therapy for pelvic pain or procedures. Pelvic floor dysfunction affects every woman’s quality of life, social life, and self-confidence.
