The concept of a weak pelvic floor quickly conjures up dreaded images of incontinence, prolapses, a lack of sexual senses and floppy lower abs. There is no wonder it has become one of the primary focuses to ‘tighten and tone’. But what constitutes a muscle that is not working, or feels weak? And what is the best way to bring it back into a healthy state? Contrary to what you might think, a weak muscle does not mean a loose muscle, one that needs tightening up. Weakness comes about when a muscle has lost its communication to the rest of the body, its sensory feedback, usually induced by a stressful environment or stressful circumstance.
