The negative effects on your pelvic floor may be closer than you realize to the actual floor -
you know, the one that you stand on.
Are you struggling with urinary incontinence and looking for the best ways to take care of your pelvic floor? Maybe you’ve already done tons of kegels, and feel that your pelvic floor must be plenty strong. Maybe you still have that nagging sense of weakness, heaviness or pressure, not to mention the urinary urgency, frequency, and bladder leaks when it is least convenient. Not that there is ever a convenient time for bladder leaks…
Well, you may not have realized that your choice of footwear can have a profound impact on your bladder control.
Bladder keeping you up running to the restroom all night?
Are you desperate to get a few consecutive hours of sleep but your bladder hasn’t gotten the message that this is nighttime and not middle of the day?
Why is it that your bladder becomes more active at night than during the day?
There are many reasons for frequent nighttime bladder urges, and many of them have as much to do with a sleep problem, as a bladder or pelvic floor problem. Either way, we can help you sort it out and get quality sleep again.
Helping health-oriented people overcome pelvic health problems, and live the life you love!
