Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is described as the involuntary leakage of urine during activities such as coughing, sneezing, lifting, laughing, or exercising. Many women are led to believe that this is a “normal part of aging”, or simply succumb to the inconvenience of wearing protective pads. This can not only be a costly solution, but can actually worsen the problem.
Multiple studies have shown pelvic floor muscle strengthening to be very effective, and has been recommended as the first line of treatment for this embarrassing problem. Additionally, research shows that a program supervised by a trained professional is most beneficial to ensure proper isolation of pelvic floor muscles, education and support.
