i was never offered kegals. from what i understand, kegals exersices are meant to strengthen the pelvic muscles to treat incontinence. in my case, that wasn't the problem, but just the opposite, i don't have weak pelvic muscles, but my muscles are too tight and not letteing go of the stools - that's called anismus. the biofeedback PT was trying to work with me to learn how to relax my pelvic muscles, not strengthen them. but i don't know if kegals can treat anismus, maybe.
