The prostate is about the size of a walnut, it surrounds the urethra, a tube that carries the urine from the bladder. As age catches up on men, their prostate enlarges putting pressure on the urethra.

This condition of an enlarged prostate is known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). This condition can increase the urge of urination or the feeling of more urine after you have finished clearing urine.

Prostate problems and overactive bladder (OAB), are both different conditions though both can cause frequent and sudden urges to urinate.

In addition to medical remedies, a variety of exercises can help reduce this condition of numerous urges to urinate

Causes of Overactive Bladder

  • Drinking too much fluid, such as caffeinated beverages, alcohol, and citrus juice can cause frequent urination.
  • Being obese can put pressure on the bladder.
  • Some serious neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis can induce the condition of OAB

Exercise can help

  • Exercises such as walking, jogging, swimming, and tennis help strengthen the muscles of the body.
  • Aerobics can also help you to maintain healthy weight.
  • Kegel exercises can strengthen and train your pelvic floor muscles to control frequent urination.

Benefits of Kegel exercises

  • Patients after prostate surgery, OAB, or diabetics are advised to do Kegels as they strengthen theweakened muscles of the pelvic floor.

How to do Kegel exercises

  • Concentrate on the muscles you just found.
  • To begin kegel exercise, empty your bladder, and lie down on the floor with your knees bent and apart.
  • Tighten the pelvic floor muscles, hold for some time and then release it. Repeat a few times.
  • Once you know how to focus on those muscles you could do Kegels while you are sitting or standing.
