my Pelvic Floor Muscles
Where They Are
The pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles at the base of your pelvis. They stretch like a hammock from the pubic bone to the tailbone. They are literally the “floor” of your pelvis.
What They Do
The pelvic floor muscles support the organs above them, control when urine and solid waste pass, provide sexual tone and satisfaction, and work with your core muscles to keep the back and pelvis stable.
How They Work
The pelvic floor muscles are voluntary, which means they should do what they are told to do. Just like a hand, pelvic floor muscles can be directed to squeeze and hold, and also to relax and let go.
Pelvic floor muscles are at the bottom of many common issues

Meet Jeanice Mitchell
After the birth of my first child in 1999, I found myself suddenly facing issues of intense tailbone pain, pelvic pressure, and leaking urine. As a young and otherwise healthy physical therapist, I refused to believe this was normal. When I came across an advertisement for a pelvic floor therapy course, I signed up in search of solutions for myself.
As the first anatomy lecture began to unfold, I was overcome with awe, inspiration, and hope. At that moment, I knew that pelvic floor physical therapy was my true calling. I was meant to share this with others! I continued to take classes, encouraged my colleagues to do the same, and soon our clinic grew to have a flourishing pelvic floor therapy program.
I have seen countless lives transformed through this innovative therapy approach, including my own. It is my mission to share that transformative power with others, making the good news about the profound impact of pelvic floor health and function available to all.
My hope and sincere prayer is that our message may reach as many people as possible, in as many places as possible, regardless of ethnicity, language, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs, or any other perceived barriers.
