Why Am I Suffering From Embarrassing Leakage?



Why do some women suffer from embarrassing leakage 💦 when exercising, while others seem to crank out the miles on their bike without a drop?🚴‍♀️
There are many reasons for bladder leakage during activity, but the overall underlying cause is a weak sphincter muscle (that holds the urethra closed) and/or weak pelvic floor (the muscles supporting your bladder, uterus, and bowel). These muscles can become weak for a variety of reasons, the most common being pregnancy/childbirth, pelvic related trauma and aging.
You’re NOT alone! An estimated 15 million women in the U.S. experience stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
The therapists at Women’s Health Physical Therapy will help you connect the pieces! Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles is WAY more than just doing Kegels.
Our therapists will create a customized treatment and exercise plan designed to help you reach your goals faster!
🚲You’ll be leading the pack in no time!
