With so much talk of dysfunction, I thought I should write a piece talking about normal function of the pelvic floor and its Inner Unit Team (Breathing Muscle: respiratory diaphragm, Abdominal Muscle: transverse abdominals, Back Muscle: lumbar multifidus). Then I happily remembered that my colleague, Julie Wiebe, PT, had posted a fantastic and informative video on her blog talking about this very team! With nothing to gain by reinventing the wheel in this or any other aspect of my life, I gladly point you toward her clip! Keeping the sports metaphors going...thanks for the assist, Julie.
