Do kegels help tone anal sphincter and manage hems? Keep them from swelling?

Pelvic Floor only: Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor, but do not get rid of hemorrhoids. By strengthening the pelvic floor, this might help to get them to decrease in size a bit, however, by improving the circulation in the area.
