The Benefits Of Bladder Control Exercises
As we get older, we start to notice changes in our overall health and one thing that is quite noticeable is bladder issues. While bladder issues can happen to anyone, it’s more common in women.
Fortunately, there are things that you can do to help you cope with the loss of bladder control, reduced urine flow and leakage. You can opt for the most invasive solution which surgery or you can take prescription drugs that are meant to improve the urinary tract, including bladder function. However, many people don’t want to go through surgery or take drugs for the rest of their life so there is another solution and that is to start doing Bladder Control Exercises.
These exercises, which include a type of exercise called Kegels, help to improve the muscles associated with the bladder and urinary tract so that the bladder doesn’t contract so much. It involves contracting the muscles inward and tightening them as one would to stop the flow or urine and holding it for a few seconds at a time before repeating a certain amount of times.
Doing these exercises will help to improve your bladder health so you are not running to the bathroom often or experiencing embarrassing leaks!
