Subscribe to Strengthen Your Pelvic Floor here! The pelvic floor is one of the muscles that make up the core. Strong core muscles not only support your internal organs but also aid in mobility. These muscles, particularly the pelvic floor, must be strong so they can support your bladder, uterus, and bowel. Weak pelvic floor muscles can lead to incontinence and/or organ prolapse. The National Association of Continence completed a survey in early 2019 found that 48% experience incontinence all the time and found that 51% of those that have incontinence no longer exercise for fear of leaking. Studies have also indicated that around a third of women have urinary incontinence and up to a tenth have fecal incontinence after childbirth.
For years, it was thought that incontinence was an inevitable consequence of getting older, experiencing childbirth, or previous surgical procedures. This was not a topic that was openly discussed even with primary care physicians and therefore, many thought this was something they would just have to deal with. This prevented many from maintaining an active lifestyle. Over the past few years, the conversation has opened up and research has shown this is something that, depending on the severity, can be treated through physical therapy, corrective exercises, or surgery. This class from Curves will help to educate and challenge you physically, so you can live your best life – your #CurvesStrong Life.
