The lowest muscular closure in the pelvis is called the pelvic floor. It consists of different layers in which the sphincter muscles are embedded. The pelvic floor has important tasks: When there is an urge to urinate or defecate, it closes and must first be able to hold, but then let go when on the toilet. It protects the uterus, bladder and intestines. During pregnancy, the pelvic floor carries a lot of weight and is stretched to the limit during delivery. When we cough, sneeze or laugh, it tightens so that the organs are not pressed down and it also helps to stabilize the pelvis.
So that it can master all these tasks, we should support it with targeted training. Because heavy physical work, frequent wearing of high heels, long and above all slack sitting, posture weaknesses, weak connective tissue, overweight, pregnancies, births and even some sports put a strain on the pelvic floor every day. By the way, by training the inner center, women also do good for their sexual well-being, because trained muscles with a good blood supply increase the pleasure of both partners. Speaking of which: training the pelvic floor muscles is also important for men. It prevents incontinence and prostate problems and helps to reduce or even solve existing problems.
A familiar situation for many: urge to urinate present, toilet not. With a weak pelvic floor, such situations become so unpleasant that those affected think twice about going on a planned excursion into nature or on a bus trip. Every third woman has weak pelvic floor muscles. Among them also numerous young women. When the urge to urinate starts to plan everyday life, you urgently need to do something about it! Even if training and therapies cannot guarantee a cure, the quality of life is greatly increased in the vast majority of cases.
