Quick Contract and Relax Exercises

This exercise improves the strength and function of the fast twitch muscle fibers primarily of the urogenital diaphragm and external sphincter muscles. These fast twitch muscle fibers are important for preventing accidents caused by increased intraabdominal pressure exerted during lifting, pulling, coughing, or sneezing. The use of quick flick contractions may also assist in inhibiting urgency. This not only interrupts the urinary stream but also inhibits a detrusor contraction once it is started. Once patients learn to perform isolated pelvic muscle exercises, they are instructed to perform quick contract and release repetitions 5 to 10 times at the beginning and end of each exercise session practiced at home.
