Incontinence Supplement or Kegels?

Posted by admin | Posted in Kegels | Posted on 03-06-2012

Are you in the  market for an incontinence supplement? Well, there’s really only one way to go:  healthy food. Incontinence is caused by a weakening of the pelvic floor muscles.  That just means they need to be strengthened. Who better to know about strengthening muscles than body builders?

Bodybuilders take all kinds of supplements for energy, recovery and muscle growth. They take steroids (legal and illegal) and all kinds of Asian herbs and nutrients.  But in reality it’s the protein, carbs and exercise that grows the muscles. The rest just help to make sure they can work out every day for maximum growth. And they do – daily.

I did come across a “bladder control” incontinence supplement today that had all kinds of stuff in it, like:  Asian ginseng root, Chinese yam rhizome, Chinese peony root, Deer antler velvet, Astragalus root, Poria sclerotium, and about 20 other things.  But if you take this and expect your pelvic floor muscles are going to fix themselves – you’ll be waiting a long time.

Muscles need exercise. Your pelvic floor muscles, for  example, are contracted all the time. They get tired, weak and leak. It’s natural. And doing kegel exercises is what helps them – not an incontinence supplement.

So don’t waste your money on that unless your doctor tells you to. Instead get your kegel exercises in gear and fix yourself today.

Male Kegel Exercises

There are really two distinct reasons people search for male kegel exercises. The most commonly searched reason is to increase a man’s ability to control ejaculation. And the other reason is to control the flow of urine.

The good news is – it’s the same muscle.

The muscle that needs a little strengthening is called the pubococcygeus muscle. These PC muscles are responsible for quite a few things. They help to control urine flow, erection hardness, and ejaculation strength. A few easy exercises and all three will improve. Read the rest of this entry »

The idea of kegel weights may seem odd, some might even say unsanitary. People who haven’t used them even wonder if they’re comfortable. But millions of women find life-long relief after using kegel weights.

Should you use kegel weights

The #1 reason they’re fantastic – focus! Doing kegel exercises requires that you exercise the right muscle. And that’s not easy without good feedback. With kegel weights you have no choice but to squeeze the right muscle. Without that, the weights fall.

If you’ve ever met someone who’s said kegels don’t work, I can guarantee you they weren’t using kegel weights. Read the rest of this entry »

What are Kegel exercises exactly? Kegel exercises, otherwise known as pelvic floor exercises, strengthen the pelvic floor. Kegel muscles form the pelvic floor supporting the bladder preventing it from leaking. Weak Kegel muscles are to blame for urinary stress incontinence. Many women hear about Kegels after childbirth. That is the best time to learn how to do them. Read the rest of this entry »

The Kegel Pro is a great exercise device, but it does have some limitations. Without a sensor of some sort as we’ve seen on other devices, you really can’t improve as quickly unless you’re very in tune with your pelvic floor muscles.

Kegel Muscles

Posted by admin | Posted in Kegels | Posted on 05-08-2011

Kegel muscles exercises are designed to strengthen the “PCS” or the pubococcygeus muscle which, like a hammock suspended from the pubic bone to the tail bone, forms the pelvic floor.

Strengthening the kegel muscles has many benefits. Among the most important is the ability to remain continent. As we age, this becomes an important consideration. Age naturally weakens any muscles but the PCS muscle has a big task in life: supporting our pelvic organs. Our comfort depends on the health of the PCS muscle.

It is impossible to do Kegels correctly without first identifying the PCS muscle. The PCS muscle is the muscle you use when you cut a urine stream off abruptly.

Pelvic Floor Muscle Anatomy

The muscles that make up the pelvic floor consist of the following groups:

    • Anal Sphincter,The ring of muscles surrounding the anus. To identify this muscle, squeeze your anus as if you are trying to hold back gas.
    • Cremaster The muscle covering the testes which controls the raising and lowering of the scrotum.
    • PubococcygeusOften called the PC muscle, it is one of a number of muscles in the pelvic floor. It is a muscle with a hammock-like shape & is found in both sexes.To identify this muscle, stop the flow during urination. During “Kegel”exercises,this is the muscle used.
    • Rectal A group of the pelvic floor muscles that control the rectum. To identify this muscle,contract as if you bearing down to perform a bowel movement.

Kegel Exercises: Men

Posted by admin | Posted in Kegels | Posted on 05-08-2011

Kegel Excercises were designed for both men & women. Dr. Arnold Kegel, a noted gynecologist in the early 1900′s is remembered for his medical inventions & the introduction of Kegel excercises. He found that strengthening the pelvic floor muscles actually controlled the signs of incontinence.

Locating your Pubococcygeal Muscle (PC) is the first step to strengthening your kegel muscles. Kegel Exercises men do most often require knowing exactly which muscle it is we’re using.

How do you do this, you ask? The easiest way is to stop the flow while urinating mid-stream. The muscle you feel tightening up or flexing is your PC muscle. You may have some difficulty at first, but keep trying & concentrating & soon you will pinpoint that muscle.

If you’re sucking your abs in, or moving any other part of your body – you’re not doing it right (I know this is an awful way to describe it, but it’s the muscles you use when you’re trying not to pass gas).

Now that you have found your P.C. muscle, let’s strengthen it!

Kegel
Exercises for Men

Just as exercise benefits any muscle, the Kegel exercises men benefit most from are similar to female Kegel exercises. For both sexes, Kegel exercises are a front-line of defense against incontinence.

How
To Do Kegel Exercises

The flexing of the PCS muscle can be felt from the penis to the anus. It’s all one motion effecting the main muscle of the pelvic floor. Practice cutting the flow of urine mid-stream. Once the PCS muscle is identified without a doubt, the Kegel exercise regime can commence.

The good news is they can be done practically anywhere – in the car, at your desk at work, while watching football. Always use a squeeze, hold, release; squeeze, hold, release pattern. As you get stronger over some months, hold tight for longer periods starting off at 10 seconds per squeeze.

Besides improving the ability to control urination, Kegel exercises done correctly can greatly benefit the sexual experience. So there’s no need to wait until 60 years old to employ them. Start using Kegel exercises if more control during sex is desired.

Developing a regimen for exercising the pelvic floor is important. Exercises will only work if they’re tried. So, stick with the regimen and remain as informed as possible about the health of the pelvic area, especially the prostate and colon.

Kegel Exercises: Male Guidance

0

Posted by admin | Posted in Kegels | Posted on 05-08-2011

A number of prominent doctors recommend patients use Kegel exercises, male patients especially. While women are more likely to experience incontinence simply due to their physiology, males often experience post prostatectomy incontinence. Effective use of Kegels can shorten the return back to normal bladder sphincter functioning.

Prostate surgery often causes stress or damage to the bladder sphincter causing incontinence. The two most prominent types of incontinence are stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Like their names indicate, one results from sudden pressure (laugh, sneeze or cough) and one involves involuntary loss of urine and a strong desire to urinate.

Operation Kegel Exercises: Male

First of all, kegel exercises are only effective when done correctly. So, it is necessary to properly identify the pelvic floor, detrusor and sphincter muscles. Once these muscles are identified, kegels for men are used to move them and finally strengthen them.

This is the Kegel Exercises Male checklist:

  1. Be aware of the function and coordination of the PFM muscle. For older adults and persons whose pelvic muscle is severely relaxed, this may take several weeks. Awareness means the ability to tighten and release these male
    kegel muscles.
  2. Muscle strength is the maximal force that can be generated by the PFM. The PFM must have the ability to contract quickly and forcefully. This is acheived through male kegel exercises
  3. Regular Kegel exercises (male) lead to enhanced muscle strength and endurance. Muscle endurance is a performance characteristic calling for the PFM to execute repeated contractions.
  4. Improvements of the symptoms indicate that the muscles are strengthening, especially as the ability to feel the muscle contract and relax increases.
  5. Thinking ahead: contracting the muscle during the time of leakage (when coughing, sneezing, laughing, on the way to the bathroom) prevents urine loss. At this point some people feel that their incontinence is so improved that regular exercising is no longer needed.
