Every year we make resolutions we don't keep, but how about a resolutions that can help you increase your pleasure in the bedroom, help with child birth and bladder control? A resolution to exercise her pelvic floor muscles regularly is the best New Year gift a woman can give herself. And it's easier now than ever before, with many simple and affordable exercise aids readily available in Australia.
Most women already know that strong pelvic floor muscles are vital for health and wellbeing throughout the life span. "Effective pelvic floor muscle exercise is essential in preventing and addressing pelvic floor related problems such as incontinence, vaginal prolapse, and low back pain and reduced sexual satisfaction." says Michelle Kenway, consulting physiotherapist to the women's health unit at The Mater Private Hospital-Redland.
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. "Others say that they can't fit an exercise program into 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 in day-to-day life, so don't require dedicated exercise time."
So there's no reason to let weak pelvic floor muscles affect your health or wellbeing in 2009. Make a resolution to exercise your pelvic floor muscles regularly and look forward to a healthy and active year ahead.
