What is the pelvic floor?
Pelvic floor health is vital in guarding against a whole range of potential health issues.
And looking after your pelvic floor can have other benefits too, not least of which is improving your sex life.
But what is the pelvic floor?
In short, it is a group of muscles, ligaments and connective tissues that act somewhat like a hammock to support your internal organs.
In a woman, they are vital for protecting the uterus, rectum, bladder and vagina.
A weakened or compromised pelvic floor can lead to a prolapse and an increased risk of bladder or bowel incontinence.
As you can see, whilst so many fixate on sagging arms or other aesthetic issues, this vital area needs careful attention and should not be ignored.
