The pelvic area, reproductive organs, bladder, and pelvic floor muscle

Perhaps you should consider the form and function of the Pelvic Floor?

THE PELVIC FLOOR

There is a group of muscles in a hammock-like sheet suspended within the pelvis that supports our internal organs. These are called the Pelvic Floor Muscles and they play an important role in the correct functioning of the urethra (the outlet tube of the bladder) and the rectum. A woman's vagina crosses her pelvic floor muscle sheet also.

Most people are unaware of their Pelvic Floor Muscles.

When bladder or bowel control becomes a problem (for example, accidental leaks during laughing, coughing or exertion or after surgery), the pelvic floor muscles come into focus.

These leaks are probably telling you that your Pelvic Floor muscles are unfit or have become damaged or stretched.

For example:

  • Any surgery involving the anal canal can lead to bowel control problems.
  • Men often have trouble with bladder control after prostate surgery.
  • Damage to the anal canal during childbirth involving tearing of the perineum and injury to anal sphincters can lead to bowel control difficulties.
  • Pudendal nerve damage during prolonged labour and childbirth.
  • Homosexual men sometimes suffer from faecal incontinence.
  • Childbirth is often a cause of overstretching of the pelvic floor muscles, particularly the vaginal muscles .
  • Perimenopause has a variety of symptoms, one being stress incontinence.

Pelvic floor exercises can revitalise your Pelvic Floor and bring things back to normal - or better!

These muscles also play a role in sexual satisfaction. With overstretched vaginal muscles, the sensation during intercourse is not quite the same for the husband or the wife.

Before starting a program of pelvic floor exercises to improve bladder or bowel control it is a good idea to talk to a doctor in case there are other factors affecting your condition.

THE PARADOX

When some people attempt to void their bowels they actually tighten their anal sphincters. This produces an effect opposite to what they are trying to achieve and can lead to chronic constipation.

Feedback from PFXA can help these people learn how to relax their anal sphincter.

PELVIC FLOOR WORKOUTS

You should do your pelvic floor workouts once or twice per day with the objective of reaching 10 on the PFX scale 10 times with 10 second 'relaxes' between. During each workout try to achieve more contractions, higher readings.

Your 'squeeze-and-lift' contractions must be 'full on'.

Your muscles only grow stronger when recovering between sessions. The greater the exertion the greater the improvement in strength.

If added muscle bulk and strength is your goal then there is no substitute for 'full on' exercising. Doing little contractions is a waste of time.

It is motivational, even fun, to see your PFX score improving.

However there is no need to use PFX every time. Do your contractions whenever you have a spare moment - waiting at traffic lights, on the phone and so on.

Use PFX to keep track of your progress.
