Pelvic floor safe exercises

Exercise is a vital part of healthy living, and is important for your body and mind.

Research shows that there are some exercises that can harm the muscles of the pelvic floor, which can lead to pelvic floor problems.

These exercises can place a downward strain on the pelvic floor, particularly for people at risk of pelvic floor problems.

If you experience pelvic floor problems it is important that you speak to a continence professional. It is also important that you speak to your fitness instructor about pelvic floor safe exercises that will not stress your pelvic floor, as certain exercises can cause or increase pelvic floor problems overtime.
