​​​​​​​​​​​​​What is the Pelvic Floor?

The pelvic floor is a term used to describe the muscles, ligaments, connective tissues and nerves that act like a hammock to support the organs of the pelvis—including the uterus, vagina, bladder and rectum. 

What is a Pelvic Floor Disorder?  

​When damage to the pelvic floor occurs, the muscles become weak or the ligaments and tissues are stretched or damaged. This can lead to a pelvic floor disorder. The five main categories of pelvic floor disorders include:​


Bladder disorders
Bowel disorders
Pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic pain
Female Sexual Dysfunction
