Some women, men and children experience unique health problems that can be greatly helped and often eliminated by pelvic floor therapy. These include urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, and prenatal and postpartum issues.
For example, the inability to predict or stop urine flow (from drops to ounces) is a common disorder experienced by more than 17 million females of all ages. Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of bladder control. There are many causes of urinary incontinence (pregnancy, surgery, overweight, etc.).
A variety of diseases, diabetes among them, can also contribute to compromised bladder control. Often difficult to manage, it can lead to embarrassment, frustration, isolation, and depression. You don’t have to live with incontinence. There is hope.
