The pelvic floor is part of a complex system that works synergistically with a range of other structures in the body, such as the ankle / foot complex, the thorax and respiratory complex, and the central nervous system. The term pelvic floor refers to the area at the bottom of the pelvis, and all of its contents and associated structures. Because the body is a dynamic, interrelated, biotensegral system, it is important that pelvic health physiotherapists understand not only the anatomy and physiology of the pelvic floor, but also its relationship to other systems.
