Pelvic Floor Issues
The pelvic floor is the collection of muscles, nerves, blood vessels, connective tissue, and other organs in and around the pelvis. A strong, healthy pelvic floor is crucial for both bowel and bladder continence. However, surgery, aging, and other issues can lead to pelvic floor issues. These issues include loss of complete control over the bowels and/or bladder along with pelvic organ prolapse – the protrusion of the bladder and other organs into the vagina.
Pelvic Floor Muscle Functions
These “Superhero” muscles are shaped like a bowl at the bottom of our abdominal container and perform the following critical duties:
- Support our internal organs (bladder and rectum, uterus in women, prostate in men)
- Act as a STOP and GO light for bladder and bowel function
- Have a major impact on our sexual function
- Stabilize our spine as they work with deep core muscles
- Help our circulatory system get the blood and other body fluids from the legs back towards the heart
