Although life expectancy has increased, the age at which people reach menopause has not changed. And as you know, when women reach menopause, estrogen production decreases.
This leads to a decrease in muscle strength. In addition, some tight fascia can prevent the pelvic floor muscle group from working well. In this case, myofascial release can help.
In addition, the diaphragm and pelvic floor muscle group work together. In other words, there is a close relationship between breathing and the movement of the pelvic floor musculature.
The pelvic floor musculature is composed of three layers. The most superficial layer is responsible for sexual functions such as vaginal tightening and erection. The innermost layer is responsible for controlling urination and defecation. Poor posture can result in poor control of urination and bowel movement. So, training the most superficial pelvic floor muscle group does not lead to better control of urination and bowel movement.
The composition of the pelvic floor musculature differs between men and women. In women, the pelvic floor musculature consists of twelve muscles. Men’s pelvic floor musculature consists of ten muscles. Since humans have become bipedal, our pelvic floor musculature is a collection of many muscles in the shape of a tunnel or dome.
