Levator Ani Syndrome

The levator ani is a group of muscles that sits deep in the pelvis like a hammock.  As as group, they lift up and into the body when engaged to assist with pelvic support, stability, and closing around the urethral and anal openings.  Unexplained spasms of the levator ani group can lead to achiness deep in the pelvis or rectum, referred to as levator ani syndrome.
