Pelvic diagram

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Pelvic floor dysfunction, also known as PFD, is caused by weak or tight pelvic floor muscles. The pelvis, also called the pelvic ring, is a roughly cylindrical shape composed of several articulating or fused bones plus associated muscles (e.g. those making up the “pelvic floor”) and ligaments (above). It receives the weight of the upper body and passes this weight on to the lower limbs via its articulations with the femurs. The stress in activities, such as walking or jumping, is absorbed by the pelvic floor muscles.
