Do you leak when you cough, sneeze, bend or lift? With double unders, running and box jumps?
You likely have Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), urine leakage that occurs with activity that involves increased intra-abdominal pressure. A diagnosis of SUI doesn’t mean you have to give up movement. I can help you find the root of the problem, whether it is over or under-active pelvic floor muscles, inefficient strategies to control the pressure down on your bladder or improving posture or bladder habits.
Do you leak on the way to the toilet?
You likely have Urge Urinary Incontinence (UUI). UUI can be the result of poor bladder habits, overactive pelvic floor muscles or external triggers that trick your brain into thinking you don’t have control. Sometimes you can be diagnosed with Overactive Bladder (urgency/frequency) as well that might result in leakage. We can work together to identify triggers, retrain your brain and teach your muscles to regain control so you don’t have to know where all the bathrooms are wherever you go!
Do both SUI and UUI sound familiar?
A combination of both symptoms is called Mixed Urinary Incontinence, and yes, we can work together to address this too!
