Olivia will work closely with you and the rest of the Lead team to ensure that you are receiving the care necessary to return to a high quality of life.
Pilates is an excellent way of strengthening your whole body, increasing flexibility and stability, and improving wellbeing through correct movement patterns. The main focus of Pilates is to strengthen your core, which includes: your abdominal muscles, gluteal muscles, diaphragm, and pelvic floor muscles.
Lead has developed a Pelvic Floor Health Program that uses a revolutionary visual tool to analyze the strength of your pelvic floor. From there, we recommend a treatment plan that includes Pilates classes that build and strengthen your pelvic floor.
Do you find yourself agreeing with any of the below statements?
“I’m afraid to leave the house since I never know when I’ll have to use the restroom.”
“Every night I get up to urinate 2 to 3 times.”
“It feels like I have no control over my bladder.”
According to a national health survey in the U.S., nearly 24 per cent of adult women struggle with at least one pelvic floor disorder:
- urinary incontinence
- fecal leakage
- organ prolapse
Urinary incontinence is not something that our society discusses openly. Instead of finding solutions for this problem, we often employ a bandaid solution by using urinary incontinence products like absorbent pads or underwear. With Lead Pelvic Floor Health, you can eliminate the need for these products by restoring your pelvic floor through exercise and treatment.
If you are currently coping with urinary incontinence, you owe it to yourself to explore all the options available to you!
