I've treated many female and male patients with pelvic floor disorders, including ABL, some of whom really benefit from "doing kegels" to reduce both urinary incontinence and ABL. The pelvic floor muscles are not always easy to find but, like any kind of strength training, they help our body function better and, in the case of ABL, minimize leakage. The key to success is isolating the right muscles. Keep in mind that all of the muscles of the pelvic floor relax and contract at the same time. That's why I've included some tips below that will help you isolate the muscles and give you the information you need to make kegel exercises an "everyday" way to manage ABL. As the exercises get easier, you will find you can do them while sitting or standing, for example, you can do them while driving, working on the computer, or waiting in long lines. Enjoy learning to master the kegel exercises along with the diet suggestions included on this website to manage your ABL!
