What is the pelvic floor?
The pelvic floor consists of muscles, tendons, myofascial and ligamentous attachments. Any dysfunction in the pelvic area may result in reproductive, gastro-intestinal and/or uro-genital system symptoms. These systems an be affected by cancer, surgery, pregnancy and other conditions, leading to pelvic pain or other problems that can impact quality of life. Other areas that may contribute to pelvic floor issues involve the spine, pelvis, coccyx and hips.
