345: Stress Incontinence Solutions

The other day I overheard a conversation between two women at the gym. One woman was complaining to the other about her stress incontinence, or, as she described it, leaking urine during her workout.

The other woman shared that she has the same problem and they attributed it to having kids and talked about how there was no solution other than surgery.

That’s not true.

In today’s episode, I’m talking not only about stress incontinence but about how we ignore problems instead of fixing them. That has got to stop.

We power through workouts without regard to what is happening with our bodies. We do nothing about aches, pains, incontinence, headaches and other symptoms instead of looking to identify & resolve the underlying issue.

Whether you workout or not, whether you experience stress incontinence or not, I strongly recommend you listen to this episode, and to your body.

    Thanks for this episode.Seems like most of my working out is trying to correct imbalances and problems. Very limiting. I don’t have a weight problem, and look very fit for my age, ( I’m 52), and I’m very active because of my career. I average about 18,000 steps, 30 floors and 300-400 active minutes on work days. I’m a city mail carrier. While I love the job, and it has many benefits, it has created imbalances due to repetitive motion. I am much improved over where I was years ago and still inching forward. I used egoscue to help correct postural problems. Still have pelvic floor issues and it’s no wonder as my hip strength was so uneven. I spent many years pushing down on my pelvic floor instead of using my glutes. Any episodes in the future would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and love the show!
