Importance of the Pelvic FloorThe pelvic floor is an often forgotten muscle. Keeping this muscle toned is important to a healthy body. Neglecting this muscle can lead to urinary/fecal incontinence as well as weakened or absent orgasms. As these muscles become weaker, the symptoms become more pronounced. Regular stretching and exercise are crucial to your pelvic floor muscles health.
What About Kegels?
More often than not, Kegels are improperly performed by about 50% of individuals and thus they are not very effective. Most individuals have difficulty isolating those muscles and instead contract their abdominal or gluteal muscles. Additionally, kegels do not provide the resistance needed to strengthen and tone the muscles of the pelvic floor.
Sommita Medical’s line of products provides that resistance and has proven to work in strengthening the pelvic floor.
