Pelvic floor muscle exercises can help restore erectile function in men, says a British study.
The study by researchers at the University of the West of England in Bristol found men with erectile dysfunction who did pelvic floor exercises had the same overall improvement as men in a large trial of Viagra.
The pelvic floor is made up of layers of muscle and other tissues. This study included 55 men, average age 59, who had experienced erectile dysfunction for six months or longer. The men were given five weekly sessions of pelvic floor exercises and did daily home exercises. They were assessed at three and six months.
