The 21st December marks Winter Solstice in the UK – meaning that we will be plunged into darkness for what feels like a lifetime… Ok, well not quite. But today of all days is when we will experience fewer hours in the sunlight and longer in the darkness.
But, one thing that we can’t leave in the dark is our pelvic floor! Read on to learn how you can shine a light on your pelvic floor this winter.

But when your fitness regime is compromised by a pelvic floor disorder such as stress urinary incontinence, it can become difficult to maintain motivation.
As soon as we begin to walk, the involuntary loss of urine is socially stigmatising. Whether this is in school, at work, or in the nursing home – incontinence is a taboo that we must hide.

We use sanitary protection products – we’d rather pad the problem than talk about it! Sound like you? It’s time to face the music and end your suffering once and for all.

You find yourself taking trips to the bathroom maybe twice or more each night!
If this is all too familiar, and you are the thing going bump in the night, you may be suffering from nocturia.

It’s the one time of the year where pretty much anything goes, it’s Christmas after all! However, one thing we often forget over winter is just how much our actions can wreak havoc on our pelvic floor.
