Looking after your pelvic health

Taking care of your pelvic health should be one of your health priorities and at Western Women’s and Men’s Health in Melbourne’s west, we’re passionate about helping you take care of your pelvic health and improving your quality of life.

You may already know that exercise can actually help in strengthening your pelvic floor and will also improve your overall pelvic health.

Below we will discuss some helpful tips and tricks to maintaining good pelvic health and incorporating this into your exercise routines.

In terms of incorporating this to your exercise routine, it’s a great idea to adding pelvic floor exercises to your workout routines to improve your pelvic floor strength, about 3 times per day to allow for optimal results without simply overdoing it.

It’s also a great idea to be mindful of avoiding doing any exercise or other activities that you find strains your pelvic floor. Which may be high impact activity/exercise, heavy lifting or another activity which causes you to push down on your pelvic floor.

When exercising you also want to be sitting or standing to lengthen your spine and ensure that both your shoulders and spine are relaxed. When performing general exercises, also bare in mind to check that your muscles are relaxed, as well as your hands, feet and buttocks to avoid strain and to increase pelvic floor strengthening.

Eventually, when completing pelvic floor exercises, you gradually want to slowly be increasing the length of time you can hold your pelvic floor. Also, keep in mind that it’s important to relax your pelvic floor between intervals while exercising.

At Western Women’s and Men’s Health, we’re dedicated to raising awareness and improving pelvic health for all. If you would like further advice or would like to book an appointment, call our caring and friendly team today on (03) 8001 2044.
