The Exercise Zone
The good news is that pelvic floor exercises are not like your usual work out routine. They’re a simple, convenient way to get those vital muscles back into shape – no sweat! (None at all, we promise.) You see, pelvic floor muscles aren’t visible to other people, so no one can tell when you’re exercising them. This means you can do these exercises anywhere you like: on the bus, in the office or from the comfort of your favourite chair while watching TV.
How Pelvic Floor Exercises can help
If you have stress incontinence or mixed incontinence (Visit types to find out more) these exercises could be very beneficial. In fact, up to 70% of people with stress incontinence experience improvements. That’s because they strengthen the muscles that support the bladder and, as an added bonus, they may also help firm up your tum! Better still, you don’t have to be in the prime of life to benefit. Even women in their 70s and 80s can improve their symptoms, so it’s well worth a go! But remember, you’ve got to keep up with the exercises to maintain the improvements.
