In brief: All

The pelvic floor exercises called "kegel exercises" are the exercises prescribed for the whole pelvic floor. They must be done faithfully and for many weeks to be effective.
I have prescribed them many times but most of my patients were not motivated to continue for the length of time needed despite many reminders.

In brief: Public-coccygeal

The pelvic floor is a hammock and it consists of three parts.
The part which extends from pubic bone to coccyx is particularly important for urinary control, kegel exercises are designed to strengthen this muscle.
