This Morning Pelvic Floor Toners For Incontinence
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A very interesting discussion took place today on the TV program This Morning about pelvic floor toners for incontinence. The recommended devices included the Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer and the Aquaflex Pelvic Floor Exercise System.

The discussion began by focusing on a young lady who had suffered from incontinence from being very young. In fact, she was the subject of much bullying at school as her problem caused her to "wet" herself on most days. The bullying was relentless and made her life a misery. Initially, specialists believed that the problem was due to her being attention seeking and therefore psychological in nature. However, it was eventually discovered that poor Kyla had a physical abnormality and could do nothing to prevent the constant leaking.

She needed a drastic and rather unusual surgical procedure, but This Morning highlighted how pelvic floor toners such as the Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer and the Aquaflex Pelvic Floor Exercise System could be used by the vast majority of women suffering from urinary incontinence, a problem which affect many women.

Urinary incontinence happens due to the general effects of aging, the menopause or the stretching of muscles during childbirth. Many women wrongly believe that there is little they can do about this rather embarrassing problem and tend to keep quiet about it, not telling their doctors or their loved ones. They can spend a fortune on incontinence pads when just around the corner, there are simple and easy to use devices which can provide a surprisingly fast cure.

I applaud This Morning for mentioning pelvic floor toners and emphasising just how easily the problem can be cured. There is no doubt that many women simply "give up" after trying the traditional kegel exercises which are particularly difficult to do correctly when the pelvic floor muscles are so weak that the "squeeze and release" exercises are, quite simply, fruitless.

The two devices mentioned on the program are quite different, but both work to achieve the same aim. This Morning have highlighted the Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer as an example of an electronic toning device. This is more costly than the Aquaflex Pelvic Floor Exercise System and the cost is justified in many respects as electronic devices tend to take over the "work", actually performing the muscle squeezes for you. In this respect, they are an easier option and are ideal for women with a very weak pelvic floor and those with severe incontinence.

Manual devices such as the Aquaflex are perhaps better for those who still have a little tone in their muscles, but who are experiencing "dribbling".

The Athena Pelvic Muscle Trainer and Aquaflex Pelvic Floor Exercise System were highlighted on This Morning as two of the best devices available but of course there are many other options available for ladies with incontinence and it is important to choose one which you feel comfortable with.
