Low back, pelvic and hip pain are common in athletes but many are unaware that their pain can be originating in part from dysfunction of the pelvic floor muscles. The low back, pelvis and hip complexes are all intimately associated and interchangeably reliant on a healthy and functioning pelvic floor. Pelvic floor muscle dysfunction can be the cause of injury or a result of an injury in the low back, pelvic and hip complexes. Failing to treat the pelvic floor can result in recurrent or chronic injuries.
