Pelvic Floor Workshop For Women

Do you leak when you sneeze or cough? Are you afraid to lift, run, or jump? Do you find yourself having the urge to urinate more frequently? You are not alone!!! 50% of all women in the US experience some degree of incontinence – and, despite popular misconceptions, this includes women who have never birthed a baby.

The most common solution Western Medicine has to offer is Kegels. There are many problems with this solution:

  • Kegels are rarely taught, and therefore are rarely performed, correctly.
  • Kegels isolate your pelvic floor muscles, when in fact your pelvic floor muscles never functionally work in isolation – they are part of two important (related but separate) teams: your core stability team of muscles**, and your pressure management team of muscles (think breathing!).
  • Kegels assume that the pelvic floor muscles are weak/hypotonic, when if fact overactive/hypertonic pelvic floor muscles are just as problematic.

**Due to the core stability role of the pelvic floor and the respiratory diaphragm muscles, there is research showing a stronger correlation between breathing and continence disorders to back pain, than obesity and physical activity!!!  >> Click here for research…

In this workshop we will cover the science of your pelvic floor as well as teach some corrective strategies – conceptual understanding is power!!!

Incontinence is common yet rarely discussed. Consequently, many women needlessly suffer in silence and don’t seek treatment, And contrary to popular belief, incontinence is not normal or an inevitable part of aging. Most cases of urinary incontinence can be treated non-surgically with lifestyle or behavioral changes.
