Pelvic floor

The Pelvic Floor is composed by different interconnected muscles (nerevs and tendons) shaped as an hammock. This terms seems funny but it’s actually the best one, as the Pelvic Floor, as the hammock, holds up everything above it. It has been divided into three different sections: the inner one, known as levator ani, is the one we should know better. We use it when we want to hold pee or when we do Kegel exercises. Above this level there is the second section that involves the area of the vaginal opening and the urethra opening. The last one, shaped ad an 8, is the most superficial one, even though we don’t see it, and it involves the muscles surrounding vagina, rettus and anus. This level also includes the clitoris’ bulbi. Since the Pelvic Floor system holds up not only our vagina but all organs of the pelvic area, it is very important to keep it in a good shape. Physiologically, as any other muscle in our body, it tends to relax with age (or after a trauma), that’s why with Kegel exercises – and a full range of other exercises to rehabilitate the Pelvic Floor – we can keep it in good shape.
