Why Kegels Are Not the Only Option for Treating Incontinence

Femina Physical Therapy is rapidly becoming recognized as a leader in the field of physical therapy for women of all ages, and pelvic floor therapy in particular. As a result, Femina PT founder Heather Jeffcoat, DPT is finding herself in demand more than ever for her valuable insights into a number of pelvic floor related topics.

In this case the discussion centers around how kegels are not the only option for every pelvic floor issue that women often face.

Some excerpts from the article:

Many women struggle with urinary incontinence. It’s uncomfortable and embarrassing. And worse, it’s linked with other health problems. Women can become dehydrated when they limit fluids to avoid leakage. They can also become socially isolated and depressed.

It’s not a problem you should ignore. “Urinary incontinence tends to get worse over time, not better. Waiting to see if it passes will just lead to more years of discomfort and leakage,” says Heather Jeffcoat, a physical therapist and owner of Femina Physical Therapy in Los Angeles.
