The Pelvic Floor is a term used to describe the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues that provide support for the internal organs, including the bowel, bladder and rectum. The Pelvic Floor is situated like a sling from the pubic bone in the front of the body to the coccyx (or tailbone) in the back of the body. This hammock-like structure helps to keep organs from falling out and helps to maintain continence - both fecal and urinary. The pelvic floor also helps achieve core stability and enhances sexual function.
Here is an amazing video by biodigitalhuman.com and anatomyzone.com that will help you understand and appreciate the pelvic floor anatomy.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is considered any pain or disruption of the function of the bladder, bowel and/or sexual function due to restrictions of the muscles, nerves, or connective tissues in the pelvis.
Orthopedic injuries can contribute to dysfunction of the pelvic floor. The spine, hips, and pelvis are all integral parts of core stability, and an Orthopedic injury to any part of the body (especially to the hips, spine, or pelvis) may cause the Pelvic Floor to overwork to compensate. This may lead to pelvic floor dysfunction.
In addition, since the brain controls nerve input to the muscles of the pelvic floor, any medical condition that impacts the health of nerves can also impact the Pelvic Floor Muscles. Diseases that impact nerves and could result in Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction include: Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Back Injuries, Spinal Stenosis and Back Trauma.
