What do the pelvic floor muscles do? - The pelvic floor muscles are responsible for helping to move the bones of the pelvis, support the pelvic organs in both women and men for urination, bowel movements and sexual function and act as one of your “core” muscles along with your abdominal, back, hip muscles and your respiratory diaphragm. Pelvic floor problems are common in both women and men but they can be treated with physical therapy.
