A resolution to exercise her pelvic floor muscles regularly is one of the best New Year gifts a woman can give herself for long term health. And it's easier now than ever before, with many simple and affordable exercise aids and programmes readily available in Australia.
Most women already know that strong pelvic floor muscles are vital for health and wellbeing throughout the life span. Research has shown that these muscles play a critical role in preventing urinary incontinence in women of all ages, in preparing for and recovering from childbirth, and in enhancing sexual response.
Yet women frequently confess that they don't exercise as often as they should, and they don't persist for long enough.
“Many women are concerned that they aren't doing the exercises properly” says Linda McClelland of Pelvic Floor Exercise, Australia’s specialist pelvic floor website at www.pelvicfloorexercise.com.au. “Others say that they can't find time for an exercise programme in a busy schedule.”
But there's no need to give up exercising for these reasons any more.
“We stock physiotherapist-approved products that suit everyone's needs” says Linda. “Some devices teach women the correct exercise technique, whilst others can be used during day-to-day activities, and don't require dedicated exercise time at all. Plus we can offer complete exercise programmes in books, CDs and DVDs to help women to stick to their resolution.”
So now there's no reason to let weak pelvic floor muscles affect your health or wellbeing in 2010 and beyond. Make a resolution to exercise your pelvic floor muscles regularly and stick to it, to enjoy the long-term benefits of a strong pelvic floor.
