The Pelvic Floor is an important core muscle
The pelvic floor is mainly known for its importance in continence, sexual activity and pregnancy. And while we value all of these things, the pelvic floor is a muscle that should be leveraged 24/7. This layer of muscles, which spans the base of the pelvis and support the pelvic organs, also has important applications in spinal health. As an integral member of the core stabilizing muscles, the pelvic floor works with the deep abdominal, back muscles and the diaphragm to form the main network of support for your spine. Pelvic floor muscles naturally start to weaken around age 40, and letting them fall by the wayside can have serious ramifications for your spine and overall wellbeing.
