The pelvic floor or “kegel” muscles help to support the bladder, vagina, uterus, and rectum. If this muscle is weak you may experience urine leakage, fecal leakage, or a heaviness associated with prolapse. Exercise places heavier stress on the pelvic floor and if it is not strong enough to support these organs this may exacerbate these symptoms.
Physiotherapy can be an effective treatment for exercise incontinence.
If you have further questions about exercise incontinence, contact either of our pelvic health physiotherapists: Carolyn (Westbrook) firstname.lastname@example.org , or Kristine (Summerside) email@example.com
