The muscles of your pelvic floor are a small, but mighty support system. This is the base of support for your spine to lift UP away from to organize good posture and healthy movement habits. Without it functioning properly, it is very challenging to stack the spine, find and use the right muscles to bend forward, backwards, sideways, or twist, find the support you need for better stability, and get the right muscles firing in the right sequence for movement. (Your Pelvic Floor also plays a key role in bladder control!) And plays an important role in gait. With it activated correctly, it becomes easier to get the legs to swing freely to walk and run. If you have tight, grippy hip flexors, or back pain anywhere along your spine from the bottom to the top. Learning how to effectively find, and engage your Pelvic Floor can help you feel better, strengthen your core, and improve posture to reduce, or eliminate back pain.
