A Kegel exercise, named after Dr Arnold Kegel, is one designed to exercise the pubococcygeal muscles, sometimes called the "Kegel muscles" in reference to the exercise. The aim is to restore muscle tone and strength to these muscles, thus preventing or reducing pelvic floor problems. Kegels are said to be good for helping prevent urinary incontinence (men and women) and vaginal prolapse (women). Kegel exercise is also known as pelvic floor exercise.
