Everyone has a pelvic floor. All men, women and children. This very important part of the body is often overlooked when it comes to keeping it strong and healthy.
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that sit inside the pelvis. They act like a hammock to keep other body organs (the uterus, bladder & rectum) inside your body.
There Are 5 Major Functions The Pelvic Floor Muscles Do
They are responsible for…
(1) The movement of the pelvis, the legs, and your trunk.
(2) Stopping you from leaking urine, or feces. (Keep you continent)
(3) Sexual function. Without pelvic floor muscles ladies wouldn’t have orgasms, and men wouldn’t have erections.
(4) Keeping your pelvic organs inside your body, and helping to prevent pelvic organ prolapse (other organs dropping down to where they shouldn’t be).
(5) Getting circulation to your legs, and back up to your trunk.
