You deserve to get more from your Kegel Exercises
It is over 60 years since Arnold Kegel recommended a series of exercises to treat the very common health condition of Urinary Stress Incontinence (USI) that plagues so many new mothers and women who have gone through the menopause.
USI is that embarrassing situation when you leak urine when you cough, sneeze, laugh or exercise. For many women it is an inconvenience. For some it is a lifelong misery. In the vast majority of cases USI can be cured quickly and effectively using exercises based on Kegel's recommendations.
The principles of the exercises are, on the face of it, very simple and straightforward, and consistent medical reports over the years have confirmed that 85% of cases can be cured with the exercises. So why do half of all women still suffer the consequences of pelvic floor weakness following childbirth and the menopause?
The case for Better Kegel Exercises
Arnold Kegel was quite clear in his recommendations and he stressed that his exercises should follow three principles:
The essential principles you need to follow can be summed up with 3 words: resistance, feedback and progression
The means you must squeeze against something with the confidence that you are squeezing the correct muscle and as you improve your exercises must be capable of increasing in terms of effort.
There is no better way to achieve these goals than the PelvicToner™ Progressive Resistance Vaginal Exerciser. It sounds complicated but it is the simplest and most effective way to make sure you are exercising correctly and effectively
Women have been let down
It seems that many health professionals are completely unaware of Kegel's principles and there is a considerable amount of evidence that pelvic floor exercises are often poorly taught by health professionals. Women are advised to squeeze 'thin air' instead of the fundamental requirement of squeezing against a resistance and, typically, women are advised to perform just 5 or 10 squeezes each day. Kegel recommended a program of 300 squeezes.
As a result, the exercises attempted by most women fail to deliver any noticeable improvement over any sort of time frame. Therefore motivation is low and most women give up.
It is also evident from clinical research that a third of women are unable to identify and squeeze the correct muscles without considerable direction.
For the majority of women the pelvic floor is probably the most under-exercised muscle in their body but Urinary Stress Incontinence is particularly prevalent amongst 25 - 60 year women who should be perfectly capable of undertaking a regular, effective exercise program.
The PelvicToner™ Progressive Resistance Vaginal Exerciser has been designed to address all of the failings that clearly exist and is guaranteed to help you perform Better Kegel Exercises.
The sexual benefits of Kegel ExerciseIn addition to curing Urinary Stress Incontinence, Arnold Kegel also demonstrated that improving the pelvic floor muscles could have a dramatic effect on the sex lives of women. So it surprising that, irrespective of the risk of Urinary Stress Incontinence, many more women do not make efforts to restore their pelvic floor strength and tighten their vagina after childbirth.
