The muscles you need to remember to exercise in 2018.
During Christmas it's very easy to overindulge. In fact, on average, people put on half a stone over the festive period according to British Dietetic Association. While most of us see this as par for the course with all the huge dinners we've put away, this weight gain can have a negative effect on your pelvic floor health. Even a small amount of weight gain can provoke the onset of issues such as stress incontinence caused by a weakened pelvic floor.
It is likely that you won’t hear of the term ‘prolapse’ until you experience it. Pelvic organ prolapse is the fault of damaged or weakened pelvic floor muscles, which cause the pelvic organs to droop into your vagina or rectum.
In this video, Kegel8 Founder and Managing Director, Stephanie Taylor, guides you through the signs of a prolapse, the causes, and the treatment options. But most importantly, how Kegel8 can prevent and treat a pelvic organ prolapse.
Those little oops moments may seem like a normal part of ageing life. Spoiler alert: They’re not! Incontinence is a common condition and it’s telling your body that something is not quite right.
In this video, Stephanie Taylor, Founder and Managing Director of Kegel8, speaks about the warning signs of incontinence. Treating the weakness is a priority, and Kegel8 can help you to regain control from incontinence.
