Hi I’m Melanie, a pelvic floor physiotherapist from Australia. I love helping people overcome their core and pelvic floor issues. With over 12 years experience with pelvic floor and pilates, I know how to help you.
Your pelvic floor is a group of 4 muscles that lie deep within your pelvis. Your pelvic floor muscles help to close off your urethra (where urine comes out), your vagina and your anus. The muscles wrap around these 3 openings helping to control them. They also help to keep your pelvic organs lifted inside and enhance sexual sensation by pumping blood to your clitoris. They also have a huge role during labour to relax and help reduce your labour time & complications. Who wouldn’t want that!
Your pelvic floor muscles attach at your pubic bone at the front and your tail bone at the back. Running like a sling or hammock between your legs. As your muscles contract (squeezing them) they shorten which gives a closing and lifting sensation around the opening of your vagina.
Yes, essentially they are the same thing, although different countries use the different terminology. Dr Arnold Kegel back in the 1940’s was an American gynaecologist who first used the term “Kegel” to describe and research pelvic floor exercises as a non surgical approach to pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. Here in Australia we use the term pelvic floor muscles and pelvic floor exercises.
As the muscle help to lift the pelvic organs, by learning to activate your pelvic floor muscles and building their endurance strength, you can help reduce your prolapse and reduce your symptoms of prolapse. Eg leakage/incontinence.
Absolutely, pelvic floor exercises for women are extremely important! Pelvic Floor muscles are one of the most important muscles in the body that you can strengthen and have working for you for the rest of your life! They help you with so many things and often without you realising it until there is a problem. Eg they keep your pelvic organs lifted but you may not know that until you have a weakness after having a baby and end up with a prolapse and leakage. So why wouldn’t you want to do simple pelvic floor exercises, to keep them strong and functioning so you live a happy and confident life.
