Pelvic floor weakness affects men and women and may be the result of being overweight, associated straining with constipation, persistent heavy lifting, excessive coughing, high impact exercise, ageing as well as changes in hormone levels during menopause and childbirth in women.
Although the pelvic floor muscles are hidden from view, they play an important role in continence, organ support, core strength and stability. These muscles work with the abdominal and back muscles to stabilise and support the spine. The pelvic floor muscles can be consciously controlled and therefore trained much like any other muscle, such as your arm or leg muscles and like other muscles, need regular exercise to function optimally.
To improve and maintain optimum health, it is important to follow a properly prescribed treatment program. Under the guidance of your Instructor and with consistent effort, you will quickly improve core strength and stability, flexibility and reduce any pain and injury.
