Kegel exercises for lowering the uterus allow the weakened muscles of the perineum to return to their former strength and restore the normal position of the pelvic organs. You need to train daily, several times a day.
Prolapse of the uterus is a fairly common pathology, which in severe, advanced cases is treated only surgically. The cause of the disease can be various gynecological diseases, childbirth, hard physical labor, hormonal changes, in particular menopause, etc. At an early stage, this disease can be successfully treated with Kegel exercises.
What Kegel Exercises Give
Developed such an innovative system of exercises that give women the opportunity to strengthen their intimate muscles and return the pelvic organs to their normal position, expert in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Arnold Kegel. A set of exercises from this famous professor of medicine helps to eliminate the manifestations of weakening of muscle tissues and improve the quality of life for women without surgery.
A set of Kegel exercises
The first exercise, willingly or unwittingly, is performed by every woman on the planet several times a day. It is associated with tension in the muscles of the perineum during urination. When the uterus descends, it is useful to interrupt the stream with each urination, that is, to restrain oneself. After counting to three, relax and resume the process, interrupt it again. Contract the muscles as many times as possible during the entire evacuation process.
The second exercise is called "lift" because the technique of its execution resembles the movement of an elevator up and down. When starting to perform it, it is necessary to slightly squeeze the muscles of the perineum. Without relaxing and not decreasing the degree of contraction for a few seconds, wait for them a little harder and again linger in this position for 3-5 seconds. Further increase the "grip", that is, squeeze the muscles even tighter, and slowly and gradually, using the same smooth steps, bring the exercise to the maximum available. The point of training is to, like an elevator, climb to the very roof, overcoming several floors and reaching the maximum degree of your tension. But that is not all. It is very important to go down on it, relaxing the muscles in stages, with each step weakening the effort more and more and, in the end, completely relax.
The third exercise is to cyclically contract the target muscles. It provides for an intensive change in the phases of muscle tension and relaxation. That is, it is necessary to rhythmically contract the muscles of the perineum, first at a fast pace, then at a slow pace, and vice versa. It will be easier for women who have given birth to perform the fourth exercise, which can be called "Pushing" or "Pushing". It is necessary to try to push as during childbirth or as during a bowel movement, but do it carefully and carefully. And the fifth exercise is to cyclically relax and contract the anus. This movement also helps the muscles of the pelvic organs work. It is necessary to perform such a workout regularly, several times a day. Only after a few months of classes can we talk about a therapeutic effect.
