Pelvic Health-Identifying the Unsafe Abdominal Exercises Post Hysterectomy
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. It is always the case that you will find a number of the women engaging in physical workouts which will expose them to serious pelvic health risk after they have just walked out of the hysterectomy procedures all too unknowingly. 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. These are ill-advised exercises for the fact that studies have shown that they will force the pelvic floor downwards more so where the pelvic floor muscles are not effective in functioning. 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.
You are as such not doing yourself any good when you engage in physical exercises which basically overload your pelvic muscles and get you so exposed to such serious health risks. 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. The abdominal curl exercises will involve the lifting of the head and the shoulders from a lying position and are of various kinds like the incline sit ups, the oblique and the fit ball sit ups, all of which must be discarded from your workout plans.
Avoid as well the exercise which will see you lifting your legs off the ground all at the same time.
