Osteopathy and Singing: Role of Pelvic Floor Muscles for 'Core Stability' and Health



ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF THE PELVIC FLOOR

The pelvic floor muscles form a kind of hammock at the base of the pelvis. Anteriorly they are anchored to the pubic bone, posteriorly to the coccyx. The name 'pelvic floor' comes from the fact that these muscles literally form a floor for the pelvic bones.


The pelvic floor is a combination of structures that provide a stable and dynamic base to the entire pelvis and contribute to 'Core Stability'.


'Core Stability' refers to the ability to control the position and movement of the trunk on the pelvis and legs.
