Many people think that the pelvic floor is a women's issue only. But this is a big mistake. Men also have a pelvic floor - and if it is not exercised regularly, it can lead to painful problems. In this blog post, I would like to tell you more about the symptoms of a weak pelvic floor and why it is so important for men to train their pelvic floor

The function of the pelvic floor

The pelvic floor supports the organs inside the body and thus has a very important function in connection with the lumbar spine. Our bladder is the lowest organ and is therefore also supported by the pelvic floor. If you suffer from a pelvic floor weakness or a prostate disease, this can have unpleasant and painful consequences and greatly impair your quality of life.

Consequences of weak pelvic floor muscles

As the pelvic floor is responsible for the correct position and function of the bladder, bowel and sexual organs, among other things, weakened, untrained muscles can have unpleasant consequences, such as:

  • Incontinence
  • Potency disorders
  • Pain in the pelvic and groin area
  • Low back pain

These pains and problems often place a heavy burden on sufferers and affect their quality of life. Strenuous activities such as sports or even laughing and coughing can be a real challenge if you have no control over your bladder. But this does not have to be the case.

In our physiotherapy practice we offer a pelvic floor course. There you will learn simple exercises and get tips for everyday life to counteract the consequences of a weak pelvic floor or to strengthen your pelvic floor preventively to avoid unpleasant consequences and to keep control over your bladder. Go about your beloved sport and enjoy yourself without fear of uncontrolled urine leakage. I would like to help you with this. You can find out more about our pelvic floor course in this article: "Weak pelvic floor? Why our pelvic floor course is the solution."

Advantages of our pelvic floor training

Training the core muscles: Pelvic floor training strengthens your core muscles and thus your whole body. 

Pelvic floor training has long since ceased to be a women-only topic, but is an important measure to protect men from consequences such asincontinence and pain. So don't wait until problems occur, but work preventively on a healthy and strong pelvic floor. I will be happy to tell you how to do this in our pelvic floor course.

Tips to relieve the pelvic floor

  • Do not lift from your back, but squat down when you have to lift heavy objects and make sure that your upper body is straight
  • Roll out of bed over the side instead of sitting up first
