Many people think that if they are leaking urine, they must necessarily have a weak pelvic floor. Starting from this assumption, they try doing Kegel exercises daily, and sometimes make their problems worse! Why is that?
In this short video, I am drawing the distinction between a weak and a tight pelvic floor, and why Kegels can be harmful in some cases!
I wasn't sure what to expect when I made an appointment to have my pelvic floor examined by Sophie. By nature, I am a private person when it comes to physical examinations and I was relieved by how comfortable Sophie made me feel and how well she informed me during the process and all that I learned about a part of my body I really had no expertise in. It's made a difference! I have been encouraging friends to become more educated and to consider having a base line of knowing their pelvic floor health.
