WCW - World Continence Week

Written by 

World Continence Week

World Continence Week since it’s inception in Cairo in 2008, Monday – Sunday in the last week of June.

It is estimated that incontinence affects approximately 400 million people worldwide.  Historially people didn’t talk about their symptoms, find it too personal, embarrassing, or thinking their was something different or wrong with their bodies, in the form of nvoluntary leakage. 

The purpose of World Continence Week is to increase public awareness and enourage people to

Educate themselves, but talking to a friend or family member, a doctor or healthcare provider, a professional who specializes in pelvic floor health and rehabilitation. Incontinence issues can affect self image, self confidene and  quality of life.

So, now that you know you are definitely not alone, or different in some weird way, you may consider taking the first small step, get curious, seek help. 

The good news is it’s never too late to to retrain the pelvic floor and associated muscular system.  These muscles are no different than others, they respond to strength training programs and techniques, as well as release techniques.  Yes, your pelvic floor muscles can be hypertonic (too tight) and need releasing before retraining.  People automatically think incontinene is due to hypotonic (weak muscles) which often it is, if you are not an athletic person.

In honor of World Continence Week, we at Alongside You, are promoting pelvic health, and offering our 6 week Progressive Series for pelvic floor rehabilitation by retraining and conditioning . Bookings taken from Starting July 1st, 2017..

There is help available, take the first step!
