pelvic floor exercises

Let’s strengthen our pelvic floor with these three exercises!

The pelvic floor consists of muscles that help support your lower body organs such as the uterus, bladder, rectum, vagina, or prostate. 

Their job is versatile as they help to control the flow of urine or feces from your body, stabilize the organs to help avoid shifting or bulging, and even assist in sexual intercourse.

Oftentimes we don’t even think of these muscles until we have a problem.

These problems can include leaking when you cough, sneeze, laugh or exercise, low back or abdominal pain, prolapses, and problems enjoying sex.

Pregnancy, childbirth, aging, obesity, straining to go, and other life events and health conditions can put stress on the pelvic floor muscles causing them to weaken.

Having a fit pelvic floor can help correct and ward off some of these conditions, so the sooner you start to work on these important muscles, the better! 

These pelvic floor exercises need to be done only a few times a week and can be done anywhere.

And, as with all exercise, consistency is the key in order to achieve results. 

If you are having a problem and you see no improvement over a three week period of dedicated pelvic floor exercise, you may need to talk with your healthcare provider before you are facing surgery.

So whether you are just looking to maintain a healthy pelvic floor or correct a few of what can be embarrassing conditions, give this video a try.
