What are the benefits of Kegel exercises for men?
Kegel exercises are named after Arnold Kegel, an American gynaecologist who developed exercises for women to treat pelvic floor weakness caused by childbirth. However, pelvic floor exercises can also be beneficial for men.
There are lots of clinical studies demonstrating that pelvic floor exercises can help with urinary incontinence in men after prostate surgery, and there’s some evidence they can also be effective for treating fecal incontinence in men.
Pelvic floor exercises can be a good first choice of treatment for some men with urinary problems or sexual dysfunction.
