Pelvic Floor Muscles | Pelvic Diaphragm Exercises

Fitness for pelvic floor
The pelvic floor or pelvic diaphragm consists of muscle fibers, coccygeal muscle, and associated connective tissue covering the region below the pelvic.

What is the function of the pelvic floor?

It is necessary to support pelvic viscera (organs), such as the bladder, intestines, the uterus (in females), and to preserve continence as part of the urinary and anal sphincter. By resisting the descent of the presenting portion, it encourages conception, allowing the fetus to rotate forward to pass through the pelvic girdle. It helps maintain the intra-abdominal pressure optimum. You can note that your pelvic floor muscles have deteriorated after childbirth or as you get older. Pelvic muscles protect our bladder, intestine, and uterus. When they contract, they raise the organs and close the openings to the bladder, anus, and urethra. Upon relaxing the muscles, our body releases urine and feces. Pregnancy and childbirth may cause muscles in the pelvic floor to weaken, and other factors are also involved, such as age, obesity, heavy lifting, and chronic coughing.

Muscle exercise on the pelvic floor is a proven conservative or preventive treatment for pelvic organ prolapse. Research suggests this procedure reduced the incidence and extent of pelvic organ prolapse symptoms.

When to seek professional health?

Seek professional help when you have bladder or bowel control problems with symptoms such as:
  • Vaginal heaviness or a bulge.
  • Difficulty emptying your bladder or bowel.
  • Accidental leakage of urine, bowel motions, or wind.
  • Wanting to urgently or frequently go to the toilet to pass urine or bowel motions.
  • Pain in the bladder, bowel, or your back near the pelvic floor area when exercising the pelvic floor or during intercourse.

If your pelvic floor muscles need strengthening, there are several easy moves to incorporate into your routine that can be beneficial. As for all workouts, pelvic floor exercises are the most successful when adjusted and tracked individually. The exercises are merely a reference and may not help if the training is inadequate or performed improperly. We at Körperkraft Medicare Centre help you add these exercises to your daily routine so that you don’t face any problems with your health and stay fit and fine throughout.
