The levator ani is a group of muscles located deep in the pelvic floor. These muscles help to elevate the pelvic floor and anal sphincter. A spasm of these muscles is called Levator Ani Syndrome and can cause pain with sitting, constipation, bowel movement pain and low back pain. Physical therapists who specialize in the pelvic floor are experts at treating this condition. Treatment will include soft tissue mobilization, exercises to stretch and relax the levator muscles and retraining of these muscles.
