The Lucas Rockwood Show

Pelvic floor problems affect an estimated 40 percent of the population. Common symptoms include incontinence, prolapse, premature ejaculation, and irregular bowel movements. Your pelvic floor is a muscular net that supports your bladder, bowels, and in women the uterus. Those muscles can be trained and strengthened just like your biceps - but it’s a little more tricky to learn how. On this week’s podcast, we meet a physiotherapist who specializes in this area of the body.

Listen and learn:

  • How to take charge of your pelvic floor health  
  • Whether pee-stop-pee is a safe practice for strengthening
  • Do apps and gizmos actually work? Are they worth it?
  • Will you ever be able to jump on a trampoline or deadlift again?
  • Are medical interventions such as collagen fillers, botox, and surgery effective?
