Pelvic floor muscles are something many women know of but find it hard to pinpoint what they do or their connection with our well-being.
The truth is those hidden muscles play a big part in your health.
This guide offers an insight into how making a small change to your day can help you feel like yourself again.
What is the pelvic floor?
Think of the pelvic floor as a hammock that supports your pelvic organs, including your bladder, bowel and uterus.
When the hammock is weakened or damaged, the muscles responsible for contraction and bladder control no longer have the strength to function in the same capacity. This means the smallest amount of pressure from laughing or sneezing can cause bladder leaks and, with further damage, may lead to pelvic organ prolapse.
If this sounds like you, we are here to help. It’s a little known fact that 4.2 million Australians aged 15 years and over live with bladder leaks. It’s common, but it doesn’t have to be.
The good news is that your muscles can be rehabilitated in as little as five minutes a day. That’s where pelvic floor training comes in.
Small muscles, big impact
With guidance, women of any age can strengthen their pelvic floor to eliminate bladder leaks and regain their confidence.
Following a regular pelvic floor training program can lead to a faster recovery post-pregnancy, increased sexual experience and best of all, a happier mindset.
There is no better time than now to start looking after your health.
The right fit for you
Finding a suitable pelvic floor trainer should come down to three things – the accuracy of the device, the simplicity of the exercise program and the support you receive along the way.
Firstly, not all pelvic floor devices are created equal. Your device should target the movement of your pelvic floor muscles to provide accurate feedback. Without it, you may be tracking feedback from the surrounding muscles, which means you won’t be exercising correctly.
Our studies have shown that 57% of PeriCoach users cannot perform a proper contraction before they start training. That’s why starting with the right device will lead to greater improvements in your health.
Matching an accurate device with a supportive training program will also help to motivate and encourage you to stick to the exercises. Tracking your strength and endurance in real-time alongside other health milestones such as bladder habits is a must to provide true insight into your results.
PeriCoach is the only Australian made pelvic floor trainer and app endorsed by women’s health specialists and guarantees results on par with clinical treatment.
