The Pelvic floor: Where our strength is focused
The pelvic floor is a complex architectural structure comprised of staggered visceral ligaments bundles and muscles. It comprehends the vagina, anus, the ductus deferens, the coccyx, the pubic bone, the bladder and the uterus.
The term “functional unit of the pelvic floor and of sphincter closure” comprehends a number of staggered and overlapping bands of (ligament) bundles and muscles. Their role is critical to several functions such as urination, defecation and erectile dysfunction. They also contribute to stabilizing the torso and the pelvis, as well as act as a scaffold to support the pelvic organs.
