Pelvic Floor Exercises for Everyone!

As your health and wellness partner, Health Products for You wants to ensure you stay healthy and informed!

As we age, urine leakage can become more prevalent. Sneezing, laughing, and coughing can cause a small amount of urine to leak. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a proactive way to avoid this problem? Pelvic floor exercises are the answer. Let's explore what our pelvic floor is, and what you can do to ensure it is strong and resilient.

What are Pelvic Floor Muscles?

We have all heard about the pelvis, but do we know what the pelvic floor is and what it does? The muscles and connective tissues in our pelvis that connect the bones to the bottom of the pelvis are referred to as the pelvic floor. Everyone has pelvic organs such as the urethra, intestines, and rectum, while women’s pelvic floors include the uterus, cervix, and vagina.

These muscles control several daily activities, but the most common is urine control. Strengthening pelvic floor muscles helps with bladder and bowel control. The benefits of pelvic floor exercises include:

  • Bladder control
  • Sexual health
  • Good posture
  • Comfortable pregnancy
  • Improved core strength

Often, pelvic floor issues are viewed as a female problem, but men are also affected. Both men and women can benefit from a good pelvic floor exercise program. Exercises to strengthen and stretch pelvic floor muscles can include:

  • Kegel exercises: The practice of contracting/relaxing pelvic floor muscles
  • Squats: These engage the largest muscles in the body and offer the best strength improvement
  • Bridge: Great exercises for the glutes and when done correctly activates pelvic floor muscles
  • Diaphragmatic breathing: Encourages the relationship between the diaphragm and pelvic floor
