Pelvic Toning… the path to understanding incontinence
As increasing amounts of women are breaking the silence surrounding pelvic floor problems, Janine Kay, mother of 3 and Managing Director of Club Cleo who manufactures a medically certified device to strengthen the pelvic muscles, shares her experience and expertise on the issue. Urging women with symptoms to become more aware of the implications of not dealing with the problem, she offers facts, tips and advice for women suffering from incontinence.
- Pelvic floor weakness is more common than hay fever, affecting around 1 in 3 women in the UK.
- Childbirth, hormonal changes during menopause, prolonged or excessive exercise, and aging are just some of the common causes of pelvic floor weakness.
- It’s vital for all women to adopt an effective pelvic exercise routine to ensure they maintain future pelvic health and aren’t restricted when it comes to taking part in certain activities or exercise.
- It has been known for women to spend over £250 a year on absorbency products just to manage the effects of their pelvic floor problems.
- Doctors around the world acknowledge that at least 80% of cases of incontinence can be improved or even cured by regularly exercising the pelvic muscle.
- Stimulation of the pelvic floor not only improves control of the bladder and responsiveness during intimacy but also increases blood flow to the region, encouraging healthy cell renewal.
- In the 1940’s a technique was developed to stimulate the pelvic muscles by means of a ‘squeeze and release’ method, known as ‘Kegel’ exercises.
- Club Cleo’s medically approved and certified ‘Cleo Q Discreet’ can safely and effortlessly provide up to 1500 comprehensive contractions during a single session lasting only a few minutes, which would be impossible to match by any other method.
