Pelvic Floor Health For Men’s Overall Wellness: The Pre-Hab Approach

Pelvic floor health is not talked about enough and there are some overlooked symptoms that you may be avoiding. Are you a man experiencing pelvic pain or discomfort? If so, you may be suffering from pelvic floor pain, a condition that affects many men. The cause of pelvic floor pain is not always so simple. There are a variety of factors that need consideration. One possible cause sitting too long. Another is high-stress levels, and the last is overuse or abuse of the pelvic muscles. The good news is there are steps you can take to manage and prevent this condition.

Pre-Hab For Pelvic Floor Health

 One of the best ways to prevent pelvic floor pain is through pelvic floor pre-hab. Pre-hab is exercise designed to strengthen, stretch and stablize your body. These exercises target muscles in the pelvic area to improve blood flow and reduce tension. This helps to prevent pain and discomfort.
To start your pelvic floor pre-hab routine, try incorporating Kegels into your exercise regimen. Kegels involve contracting and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles and can be done anywhere and at any time. Other exercises that can help strengthen the pelvic floor include bridges, planks, and squats.
It’s also important to take breaks throughout the day and engage in regular exercise. If you spend a lot of time sitting, consider investing in a sit-stand desk or using a timer to remind yourself to get up and move around. And if you engage in high-impact activities, make sure to engage in proper stretching and self-care afterward to prevent overuse injuries.

Don’t Ignore the Symptoms

If you are experiencing pelvic pain, it’s important to seek medical attention from a healthcare professional who specializes in men’s health. They can help diagnose the issue and develop a treatment plan that may include pelvic floor physical therapy, medication, or other interventions.
By prioritizing your pelvic floor health and engaging in regular pelvic floor pre-hab, you can help prevent and manage pelvic floor pain. So, if you’re a man experiencing pelvic pain or discomfort, take action today to improve your overall health and quality of life.
