Why Powering Up Your Pelvis Is So Important for Women
Pelvic floor dysfunction can lead to urinary incontinence. Sneezing, laughing and physical activity can prompt surprise urine leakage.

There’s no need to suffer embarrassment from this issue. Speak with a doctor to find out the cause of your incontinence.

Physical therapy can often address the source of this incontinence. The muscles within the core must work together as an integrated unit. While a Kegel contraction can improve pelvic floor awareness, strength of the entire pelvic floor can help remedy the precise area causing difficulty.

Hormonal changes can influence how muscular systems activate.

Listen as Christina Christie joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to discuss how you can power up your pelvic floor.
