Health – Getting Started & Next Steps
If you were just out of a hysterectomy procedure, then for the sake of your pelvic health you need to stay away from some kinds of physical exercises which are just nothing but inappropriate for you. This has often been the case that most women will get exercising and practicing some physical exercises and workout programs which all seem to be too dangerous for them more so for them who were just through a surgery all out of ignorance. The rather unfortunate bit is the fact that you will find most of the gym instructors as well not as informed on the fitness programs which will be inappropriate for their candidates who were post a surgery and this only gets to leave the women candidates the more exposed to pelvic health dangers. We present in this article a guideline for you to use to identify some of the unsafe core strength exercises which will not be fit for you after a hysterectomy surgery.
One of the exercises to avoid is that which will involve the stretching of the abdominal muscles for they will greatly impact on the pelvic floor. Studies have conclusively revealed that where one has a poorly functioning pelvic floor muscles, then engaging in the abdominal curl exercises will eventually push the pelvic floor downwards. The net effect of such kinds of exercises is the reduced pelvic support with the continued strain and pressure exerted on the pelvic muscles out of the core strength or abdominal exercises.
The problems which you are bound to suffer as a result of reduced pelvic support and pelvic floor problems are quite a number and some of them are anorectal disorders, incontinence, and vaginal prolapse. You need to bear in mind the fact of research which suggests that the risks of vaginal prolapse are significantly increased after a hysterectomy.
It thus becomes quite imperative that you learn how to avoid overloading your pelvic floor muscles after a hysterectomy with wrong abdominal or core strength exercises. Below we list some of the exercises which will be just that-inappropriate for you post a hysterectomy.
Do not get in your workout regime the abdominal curl exercises at all just as we were saying above. These include sit ups of all kinds like the incline sit ups, oblique and the fit ball sit ups.
The double leg raise kind of exercises are as well not advisable for your pelvic health if you happened to be out of a hysterectomy surgery.
