Should You Be Doing Kegels?



Imagine if...

I told you there is one exercise you should be doing to fix any type of back pain.

Regardless of where your back hurts, no matter why or what kind of pain you have.


Would you believe me?

I hope you would be give me the side eye and keep walking.


But we're told this about our pelvic floors everyday.


Pelvic floor contractions or Kegels are prescribed as the band aid solution to any kind of pelvic floor issue.

From leaking when you sneeze to pelvic organ prolapse.


Here's the thing.


Your pelvic floor muscles can be weak and need strengthening, but they can also be working too hard. This leads to them holding excess tension and tightness.


If you have a tight pelvic floor, you should avoid Kegels like Marie Kondo avoids clutter.

You will end up increasing the tension in your pelvic floor which can make things worse.


If you've done thousands of Kegels and aren't seeing any improvement, you need a new plan.

Your first step is to find out if you could have tight pelvic floor muscles.
