Most woman athletes enjoy excellent fitness and health but for some the strenuous, sustained athletic activity can weaken your pelvic muscles and cause urinary incontinence. Although you may be in great shape, athletic activity such as volleyball and basketball involving a lot of jumping generates lower abdominal (perineal) pressures on your pelvic muscle and can cause it to become tender, overactive and weaken failing to support your bladder allowing leakage when you perform strenuous athletics. You may also experience pain in the lower abdomen, groin or lower back.
The Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer naturally strengthens the pelvic floor and has no side-effects!
Pregnancy and childbirth place a tremendous amount of stress on the pelvic floor muscle. In addition, once the baby is born there is constant lifting. Not only do you lift your child for several years, you also lift strollers, car seats, etc. This places a constant strain on the pelvic floor and increases weakness unless you exercise it. Women often start to experience more leaks as their child grows.
Any pelvic surgery can also weaken pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor exercise can help them regain their strength.
The Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer is discreet to use, even when caring for your children. It automatically does Kegels for you so you don’t have to concentrate on doing them.
As you age your pelvic floor muscles get weaker as a result of having children, entering menopause, pelvic surgeries or long-term high impact exercise. The muscles around the urethra are no longer able to hold back urine when pressure such as laughing, coughing or sneezing is exerted on the pelvic floor. This is a condition that can be helped by exercising the pelvic floor muscles to make them stronger.
You can treat some these symptoms with protection or medications but they only mask the weakening of your pelvic muscles<
The Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer enables you to strengthen your pelvic muscles in the privacy and convenience of your own home.
