What’s the big deal about the Pelvic Floor?

In an effort to acquire more educational resources in the context of movement therapy, I’ve come across a few alerts regarding our pelvic floor. Did you know that 1 out of 2 women and 1 out of 4 men will suffer from a pelvic floor disorder in their lifetime?

Unlike the bicep or the hamstrings, the pelvic floor muscle is hidden from view. We take for granted that it even exists and therefore make no effort to put it to use. A case of “Out of sight, out of mind.”

I, like many other women, didn’t know much about the pelvic floor before pregnancy..
