Why are Kegels not working for you?

Kegels are exercises designed to strengthen your pelvic floor — the group of muscles and tissues at the base of your pelvis.

The exercises themselves involve repeatedly contracting and relaxing your pelvic muscles, the same ones used to stop urine flow.

Kegels are actually not useful if you have a Hyper-tonic pelvic floor. In certain cases it can worsen the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction.

Kegels can fatigue our pelvic floor muscles and cause greater weakness or even muscle spasms. This is why doing Kegels actually promotes urinary incontinence in 25% of cases, instead of reversing it.

When Kegels were invented, they might not have been intended to be a one-size-fits-all approach. But here we are 70+ years later and they’re still the primary, and in some cases, the only recommendation for women with pelvic floor dysfunctions.
