Reverse Kegel – The unsung hero of pelvic wellness. If you have pelvic pain and leakage and you are doing the usual recommend Kegel strengthening exercises, but are finding worsening pain or no results, you might be a candidate for reverse Kegel program. Pelvic pain may be caused by shortened pelvic floor muscles and possible trigger points. Kegel exercises would just further shorten those already tight muscles. So reverse Kegel is ideal for lengthening and releasing the pelvic floor muscles.
Incorporating diaphragmatic breathing and various positions to facilitate lengthening of the pelvic floor muscles you can find your way back to pelvic wellness. Depending on how long you have had this pain, you may need patience with yourself. A lot of us are holding our pelvic floor muscles and have been for years without being aware of it. It will take patience ad practice. Reverse Kegel’s need the art of letting go!
