Let's learn how the pelvic floor works:

How it supports our spine

How it holds up our organs

How it stops leaks

How to increase sexual satisfaction

Our pelvic floor muscles form a sling, and these muscles help to hold up and support our organs.

They also attach to the back of the spine, which is a great supporter for the low back. It's a great supporter for our SI joints as well.

We have two sides to our pelvic floor muscles, so you might have tightness on one side that you don't have on the other.

We have these different pelvic bones coming together, if you have pulling on one side, that might create a side joint pain.

Exercise: The Pelvic Floor - Core Connection

This is a great exercise to cue front pelvic floor support.

Pelvic Floor Exercise 1

Generally, if you have some pelvic floor tightness, you're going to be able to get a better contraction when you pull those sitz bones apart.

Sit up straight as you lean back a little, then take your hand and place it on your lower belly.

Begin to "lift in" from your pubic bone. You may feel a front pelvic floor contraction.

Try to hold this position while you lift one leg. Does your pelvis stay still or does it move around?
