It's Time for a Change in Pelvic Floor Health! #pelvicroar
#Pelvicroar (www.pelvicroar.org) is a physiotherapy-led collaboration in pelvic health campaigning. Launching this World Continence Week, 18-24th June 2018.
Most women will suffer from a pelvic floor disorder at some point during their life. The majority of which are easily curable. Sadly, many women are unaware that help is available, and even if they are, many are too embarrassed to seek help. This means that currently only 1 in 5 women visit their GP for help, after waiting an average of 6.5 years before doing so.
Leaking urine is a common issue, but should not be considered normal or healthy. No-one should put up with this dreadful intrusion into their lives.
#Pelvicroar Aims To:
- Bust the taboos surrounding pelvic health issues.
- Educate and support those suffering with pelvic floor disorders, such as incontinence.
- Share information about new prevention and treatment methods.
- Encourage the healthcare and fitness industries to better communicate with members of the public.
- Promote pelvic health education alongside; sexual education at school, antenatal and postnatal care, menopause care, prostate care and during senior years.
Follow and Share the Campaign using #pelvicroar
Here at Kegel8, we are proud to support the #pelvicroar campaign. Throughout the week, the campaign will be exploring the impact incontinence can have on your life. As well as how to manage and treat it.
For us to succeed in spreading the word of pelvic health, we need you to join in. Speak openly with your friends and family. Encourage women you know to look after their pelvic floor and learn about the common issues that can occur.
