What is Your Pelvic Floor?
The pelvic floor is a mass of muscles, tissues, and ligaments that straddles the pubic bone and tailbone. Unlike other muscles in the human body, the pelvic floor is not often shown in common anatomy diagrams, which is perhaps why it is often unintentionally neglected.
Weakness in the pelvic floor is a very common issue in both older men and women. However, some people may experience these issues from a very early age. In women, pelvic floor weakness usually arises due to menopause, pregnancy, and childbirth. Male pelvic floor muscles are weakened often by surgery, weight gain, or heavy lifting.
Pelvic floor weakness is something that both men and women can overcome. Using Maximum Personal Trainer (MPT), for men and Feminine Personal Trainer (FPT), for women, you can quickly strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
