Get to Know Your Pelvic Floor

Does unexpected jumping, laughing, or sneezing fill you with anxiety?  You are not alone.  Today, 50% of women between 20 and 50 years of age experience bladder leakage during physical exertion.  A little known fact is that while women are most commonly associated with pelvic floor weakness, men can be just as susceptible.  In fact, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, up to 13% of men suffer from urinary incontiennce, which can be caused by weak pelvic floor muscles.
