What's Your Pelvic Floor Got to do with your back pain?




A 2018 study by Dufour et al. looked at the pelvic floor function of women presenting to traditional physio clinics with low back pain.


95.3% of those with low back pain had some form of pelvic floor dysfunction!


71% of those with a pelvic floor dysfunction had an overactive pelvic floor. Meaning they hold TOO much tension in their pelvic floor.


66% had a pelvic floor weakness and 41% had a pelvic organ prolapse.
