The muscles and ligaments that make up your pelvic floor form a “hammock-like sling of support” underneath your pelvis, said Christine King, DPT, PRPC, physical therapist lead for Hoag’s Pelvic Health Program in Newport Beach, CA. It’s located at the base of the pelvis and under your bladder, uterus, and rectum, said pelvic floor physical therapist Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, forming the structure that goes around your urethra, vagina, and anus.
