Let’s Talk About Bladder Leaks
Bladder leaks are not pleasant, but by looking at contributing factors including past pregnancies, race, hysterectomy, etc., we can often treat it successfully with a variety of effective rememdies depending on your history. With the large number of women in America and around the world who could be considered "baby boomers", it's no surprise that BabyBoomers.com reached out to me to write this guest blog post. Here is a brief synopsis of the article with a link to the full article below.

Babyboomers.com Says "Let’s Talk About Bladder Leaks", So Here We Go!

For many women, aging can present a variety of expected and unexpected hormonal and physical changes, including bladder leaks.

As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, I frequently see women come in with questions regarding bladder leaks and how to strengthen their pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is located between your tailbone and the pubic bone, and it plays an important role in supporting the bladder, bowel, uterus and vagina.

The truth is, 1 in 3 women experience bladder leaks, yet many women are still embarrassed to talk about leaks with their doctors, friends or family. Incontinence can have many contributing factors including past pregnancies, race, hysterectomy, weight, genetics and muscle weakness.

The article covers some techniques and treatments that I recommend for managing bladder leaks so that you can continue to live life and pursue fun activities without worrying about leaks. The key areas covered include:

  1. Know how to Identify Bladder Leaks
  2. Visit a Pelvic Health Physical Therapist
  3. Practice These Exercises to Engage the Pelvic Floor
  4. Find The Right Products to Manage Leaks

Click here to continue to the full article on bladder leaks and what to do about them, and of course we are always here to help when you are ready to schedule an appointment with one of our therapists.

      Femina PT (née Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy) has honestly changed my life. Before receiving treatment at Femina, I was going doctor to doctor to try and find the answer to my pelvic pain. It has taken me YEARS to find someone that can help fix this. It wasn't until my gynecologist recommended your clinic that I finally felt relief. My pelvic pain is almost gone, and granted I still have a lot more to work on with Laureen (my PT), my original problem is nearly cured. I am so grateful to...
