Pelvic floor muscles

The pelvic floor muscles (or pelvic muscles) are a group of muscles inside the pelvis that form a floor between your legs.  They are located between the pubic bone (at the front) and the base of your spine (at the back). Weakening of these muscles can lead to problems such as urinary incontinence and, if the anal closure muscle is affected, faecal incontinence.
