Exercise that helps ED

Updated: Feb 27, 2019

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is an unwelcome guest for many men. ED occurs when a man cannot get or maintain an erection for successful penetration. Contrary to myth, most men will experience some form of ED at any age. Specifically, pelvic floor muscles sometimes lose tone and strength, resulting in ED. The good news is that there are exercises that can help reverse ED.

Pelvic floor exercises for ED When pelvic floor muscles are the culprit of ED, treating the cause can have long-lasting results. Contrary to solving the problem, medications only provide temporary relief and do not solve the problem. Moreover, many men find medication to be ineffective or come with unwanted side effects. By the contrary, pelvic floor exercises are easy to do, require no privacy, can be done at any time and the results are lasting.

What types of exercises can help ED? Exercises that strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, also called Kegel exercises, can help men with ED. The pelvic floor muscles are essential in supplying and sustaining blood flow to the penis and maintaining erections. These muscles work by putting pressure on the penile arteries and veins, thus making them more reactive. The pressure also prevents blood from escaping the area, and as a result an erection can be maintained.

Kegel exercises for ED Pelvic floor exercises, or Kegels, are beneficial to treat ED. These exercises target the pubococcygeus muscles at the bottom of the pelvis. When these muscles weaken, they cannot do their job in assisting with blood flow and preventing blood leakage. Kegel exercises can take 3–6 weeks to improve erections; nonetheless, the effort is worthwhile.

Pelvic Floor Training The good news about pelvic floor muscles is that they help with erections. The bad news is that doing Kegel exercises the wrong way will not yield results. Therefore, it is important for men to learn the proper technique in order to reap the most benefits. Getting coaching through a pelvic floor training exercise will guarantee optimum results.
