Physiotherapy and rehabilitation specialist. Dr. Fatma Şeker continued her words in her statement about the pelvic floor rehabilitation program: “The most well-known pelvic floor muscle exercises are Kegel exercises. It is recommended that healthy individuals also do pelvic floor exercises with Kegel exercises. After the toilet requirement has been met, the pelvic floor muscles are contracted for 10 seconds and kept relaxed for 10 seconds, as if to hold in urine, and this is repeated 10 times. It is recommended to do this exercise 6 to 8 times a day. This exercise can be done standing, sitting, working in the office, driving or lying down. The patients who benefit most from pelvic floor rehabilitation are those with urinary incontinence, also known as stress incontinence, due to increased intra-abdominal pressure during laughing/coughing/sneezing or physical activity.
Patients with post-pregnancy urinary incontinence, organ prolapse, and related urinary incontinence often turn to a pelvic rehabilitation specialist. In addition, children with daytime and nighttime urinary incontinence in infancy also benefit from a pelvic rehabilitation program, if appropriate, following a specialist pediatric urologic examination.
