Little by little we began to be more aware of the importance of working the pelvic floor. Generally, women begin to hear about this musculature when they become pregnant or after giving birth. When they explain the importance of working on these muscles, we can quickly start exercising with it because it is something simple and can be practiced at any time or introduced into our usual exercise routine.
Sometimes, just with a couple of clicks, we can find a physiotherapist specialized in pelvic floor with whom to consult if we have any problem related to this area of our body, other times, it is the gynecologist or the midwife who recommends us to go to a review. When we realize the importance of this musculature, we begin to recommend to the people around us that a revision is carried out after childbirth or when they have any symptoms that we consider important. Despite this, there are still many things on the pelvic floor that we can learn, here are five things that not many people know about the pelvic floor
