The importance of our pelvic floor muscle. How do we work our pelvic floor muscles ?

Our Pelvic Floor muscles are located at the very base of our body as indicated in the diagram below. Our pelvic floor muscles represent the base of our core stabilising muscles and these muscles are responsible for holding up our internal organs including our bladder & bowel.

Exercising your pelvic floor muscles is very important to help keep these muscles strong, just like any other muscle in your body. Our saying ” if you don’t use it, you lose it ” relates to all muscles in our body including your pelvic floor muscles. Toned pelvic floor muscles help prevent sore lower backs, provide bladder continence, bowel continence, help in stabilising & balancing the other core muscles in our body, provide organ support, sexual sensation & a sense of healthy overall wellbeing.
