How to Stretch the Pelvic Floor Muscles

Your pelvic floor muscles provides support for your visceral organs, which include the urinary bladder and the lower intestines, according to Anthony Carey, owner and co-founder of San Diego physical-therapy practice Function First. They also control your continence and, in women, assist in birth. The pelvic floor muscles are located beneath your pelvis, working with other hip muscles to keep the pelvis from moving excessively during movement, such as kicking or running. Stretching these muscles alleviates stiffness and improves hip mobility, which can help prevent back and hip pain.
