Author(s):

Aatika Khan, Amaan Ali Khan and Asma Parveen

Abstract:

Pelvic floor training is emerging as a crucial component in enhancing sports. This review delves into the wealth of research exploring the intricate relationship between pelvic floor health and athletic prowess. Scientific investigations reveal that a well-conditioned pelvic floor contributes significantly to core stability, balance, and overall muscle function-key elements in optimising sports performance across diverse disciplines.
The literature underscores the importance of pelvic floor training in preventing injuries, particularly those related to the lower back and hips. Athletes engaging in targeted pelvic floor exercises experience improved muscle coordination, agility, and strength. Furthermore, the review sheds light on how such training positively influences biomechanics and neuromuscular control, providing athletes with a competitive edge. As the sporting community increasingly recognizes the multifaceted benefits of pelvic floor training, this literature review serves as a valuable resource for athletes, coaches, and healthcare professionals seeking to optimize athletic performance through a holistic approach.
