A set of exercises to improve the condition of the inflamed prostate.

Physical activity is very important to maintain health. It is also useful in the presence of certain diseases, including prostatitis. Exercise for prostatitis has been shown to have a positive effect on men's condition and can reduce their need for medication. And this is not surprising, because even a set of general strengthening exercises (especially with prostatitis) can significantly strengthen the immune system, improve blood circulation and contribute to the rapid restoration of gland tissues.

What is exercise therapy for prostate inflammation?

With regular exercise with prostatitis, you can achieve noticeable improvements in many indicators. This effect of exercise therapy is due to the fact that a specially selected complex is directed against congestion, which with a high degree of probability can provoke inflammatory processes in the organs located on the pelvic floor in men. If it is too late to take measures to prevent pathological changes, there are exercises for the treatment of prostatitis, which include breathing exercises and a well-developed complex of physical exercises on the deep muscles of the pelvis, legs and abdomen. This scheme is really curative, since it acts on the symptoms and deals well with the causes that caused the inflammation.

Through physical exercises from prostatitis, you can get rid of the following symptoms of the disease:

  • the patient is not worried about urinary retention - an active load on the deep muscles of the pelvis activates blood and lymph flow, which leads to a decrease in swelling of the gland;
  • due to the outflow of free fluid and toxins from the tissues of the gland, pain and discomfort during ejaculation decreases;
  • due to the influx of nutrients and oxygen into the gland, its functioning is normalized, which leads to the restoration of hormonal balance and affects the general well-being of men: irritability disappears, sleep is normalized, and sexual desire is restored.

In addition, the increased lymph flow starts the process of natural protection of the prostate: therapeutic exercises improve immunity, promote faster elimination of pathogenic microflora (if any), reduce the severity of inflammation. Also, a set of exercises inevitably affects the men's body as a whole, as it strengthens the immune system, makes breathing deeper and fights blood stasis.

Principles of the exercise

According to the scheme approved by urologists, physical exercises for prostatitis should fulfill the following tasks:

  • stimulating - the exercise therapy complex improves blood flow and metabolic processes that cause increased phagocytic activity in the prostate area;
  • therapeutic - exercises provoke the regeneration of damaged tissues through an increased influx of nutrients into the gland area;
  • restoration - the exercise therapy complex leads to the normalization of the functions of the glandular-muscular organ of men, the production of a secret and its release;
  • protective - through exercises for prostatitis, local immunity is formed, which inhibits the growth and reproduction of pathogenic flora.

In order for all these goals to be achieved, the performance of each prostatitis exercise must be carried out according to certain standards. First of all, physical education for prostatitis should not be used in the acute phase, which is expressed in the appearance of pain and acute urinary retention. Secondly, remedial gymnastics should be stopped immediately when tangible discomfort appears during its execution. Third, enough time should be given to exercises from prostatitis, at least 30 minutes a day. Fourthly, for a stable improvement in the condition of men, exercises for prostatitis should be given every day, not allowing breaks even for a day.

Types of exercises for prostatitis.

The following gradation can be applied to exercises for prostatitis, which is formed according to the principle of the complexity of its implementation:

  1. Simple - a complex for men according to Kegel. The backbone of such complexes consists of exercises for prostatitis, based on latent performance (hidden, invisible to others) - squeezing the anus and relaxing it.
  2. Medium difficulty: exercises that can be performed lying down or sitting (relevant for overweight men with a weak physical base). Such exercises for prostatitis include "scissors", "bicycle", leg swings, rolls on a gymnastic ball, hip rotation.
  3. Difficult - a complex that includes exercises, the implementation of which requires maintaining balance, including many muscle groups at work. Exercises for prostatitis in this section include inclines in a semi-squat state, "pendulum" exercises, "barre", associated with breathing exercises, and others.

All the listed groups must be included in the daily complex, and only in this case the concept of "therapeutic" will fully justify itself.

The essence of this is that in order to eliminate inflammation in the prostate, it is necessary to strengthen not only the pelvic floor (its muscular component), but also the back, abdominals and hips. An important point is the normalization of the circulatory system and the heart, which is also achieved by regular exercise for prostatitis.

What exercises should be done daily?

To eliminate inflammation, normalize blood circulation and lymph flow, improve prostate function, it is recommended to perform the following list of exercises for prostatitis daily:

  • contractions of the anus according to Kegel - in different positions (sitting, standing, lying down) 50-100 times in one approach, 2-3 approaches per day;
  • half squats with knees apart: 5-7 squats per set, at least two sets per day;
  • bring the knees to the chest from a standing position (legs together) with a delay of 5 seconds - at least 6 repetitions, two sets per day;
  • from a semi-squatting position with the body slightly bent forward, get up and at this time extend both arms and one leg to the side - 3-5 repetitions for each leg, two sets per day;
  • lift the pelvis from a supine position with the legs together and hold the breath in the upper arch of the back for 5 seconds - 5-7 repetitions, 2 sets per day;
  • from a lying position on your stomach with your hands behind your head, raise your closed legs, then spread them apart and hold for a minute, then lower them and level your breath - 2 repetitions, up to 3 sets per day.

In general, this complex is enough to normalize the state of the prostate gland. It is important to remember that if pain occurs, you should stop exercising for several days and then try again.
