Hey! You must be wary of some core strength exercises which are inappropriate for you if you are just post a hysterectomy. 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. This is even worsened when you realize that the instructors at the gym are as well not quite tipped for the appropriate exercises and the wrong ones which they should enroll their clients who are post a surgery in for and thus the women are all the more exposed to risks to their pelvic health. We have outlined below a guideline which can be of great use to you to identify those physical exercises which you can avoid as for the safety of yourself if you are post a hysterectomy surgery.
The pelvic floor is posed a great risk if you happen to involve yourself in an exercise which will involve the upper abdominal muscles. 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. This will steadily increase the damage done to your pelvic floor and you are at the risk of greatly reducing the pelvic floor support.
Now the dangers of decreased pelvic support are numerous in pelvic floor support problems like vaginal prolapse, urinary incontinence, pelvic pain and anorectal disorders. 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. 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.
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.
