Kegels

Description of treatment

Your pelvic floor stretches from the pubic to tail bone and has three main functions: it provides support for internal organs such as bladder and bowel; plays a key part in sexual function and satisfaction, and supports a growing uterus and baby during pregnancy. Like most muscles, your pelvic floor muscles need frequent exercise to stay in top shape. These exercises are known as Kegels.

There are a range of manual pelvic floor exercises that, if done correctly, correctly are a fantastic way to strengthen the pelvic floor to help prevent and treat incontinence, prolapse and lack of intimate sensation.

Knowing how to do pelvic floor exercises correctly is quite difficult, and it is also quite challenging to know that you are contracting and relaxing the right muscles. There are therefore a range of electronic pelvic toners, vaginal weights and cones to assist with optimising this area more effectively.
