Where Is The Pelvic Floor Located In The Body?
The pelvic floor consists of muscles and soft tissues in the pelvic region of the body, which extend from the bottom of the spine to the pubic bone. The muscles and soft tissues in this area of the body are designed to relax and contract for various purposes including:
- The pelvic floor helps us regulate our urinary and bowel movement functions by opening and closing the appropriate areas when we need to use the bathroom.
- The pelvic floor provides support for the organs in the lower body such as the intestines, bladder, and so on.
- The pelvic floor aids in supporting the lower back and hips.
- The pelvic floor helps enhance sexual experiences.
- The pelvic floor helps maintain the flow of blood in the pelvis and womb.
What Are Some Common Symptoms Of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?
Pelvic floor dysfunction occurs when the muscles and soft tissues in the pelvic floor are not strong enough to function correctly. There can be a variety of reasons why the pelvic floor weakens, such as childbirth, pregnancy, surgery in the pelvic region, menopause, and difficulty urinating and with bowel movements.
Some of the more common symptoms can include:
- Lower Back Pain
- Urinary and Bowel Incontinence

Pelvic floor physiotherapy treatment focuses on strengthening the muscles and soft tissues in the pelvic region. An initial assessment is performed during your first visit to Physiotherapy First to determine the extent of your pelvic floor dysfunction. Your physiotherapist will review various bodily movements in the lower body region as well.
After a detailed physical examination, we will develop a custom-tailored treatment plan to fit your specific needs and underlying causes of your pelvic floor dysfunction. Our physiotherapists also take the time to educate you about your condition, so you have a better understanding of its causes and how they can be resolved.
Part of your treatment plan will include different exercises to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and connective tissues. Exercises will be taught to you in the office to ensure you can do them at home in between visits. As your pelvic region strengthens, exercises are adjusted and altered to continue your recovery and progress.
