tighten your stomach so it can pull all the pressure off of your pelvis resulting in less pain over time. During exercise, place your hand on your stomach to make sure you are engaging your core.
Exercises That Don’t Require Pelvic Usage
If you are having severe pelvic pain due to fibroids, try avoiding any exercise that could cause issues. Exercises like sit-ups, crunches, and movements where hands or legs go up at the same time should be avoided.
Instead, squats, breathing exercises, and modified planks are the way to go. It may be hard to consistently find workouts that don’t involve using your pelvic area, but it is very possible!
When it comes to pelvic-friendly exercises, kegel exercises are probably your best option. This exercise is the best for preserving your pelvic floor to avoid pain.
One of the best things about this exercise is that you can do it anywhere. Sitting, standing, or even lying down will work as long as you are on your back! Simply squeeze your abdominal muscles like you are holding back urination and hold for about 10 seconds. Repeat this five minutes a day to begin to see results!
If you or a loved one is struggling with pelvic pain due to fibroids, these exercises are great, but if the problem intensifies seek professional help.
These exercises are meant to soothe and cope with the problem, but they don’t cure anything. Issues with your fibroid can also bring symptoms like vaginal bleeding or prolonged menstrual bleeding.
In some cases, fibroids can cause severe pain that can improve after a few weeks and be relieved with painkillers.
