The Art of Kegel
A Kegel is an exercise that contracts the pelvic floor muscles. This exercise may be prescribed to you following a complete evaluation. A weak pelvic floor will benefit from performing Kegel contractions correctly. However, in a patient with a tight or spastic pelvic floor, the symptoms may worsen with Kegel exercises. Make sure to see a pelvic floor specialist in order to do a full assessment and determine the best individualized exercise plan for you.
