It’s go time! I have partnered with researchers at Robert Morris University to investigate if women can access and benefit from an online, integrative pelvic floor program to address their stress urinary incontinence (SUI). SUI is involuntary loss of urine due to coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercise or sex. Our hope is that this tele-health program will be a way for women to get help, particularly those without access to care (rural or remote areas) or those too afraid or embarrassed to seek help. The program is a fresh approach to addressing SUI (different than Kegels). It is presented in 7 short videos that include education and simple exercises, as well as alignment and movement recommendations to be integrated into day to day activities.
If you or someone you know might benefit from this type of program, please review the official announcement below and pass it along! A link is provided to review the criteria for participation. The first 60 folks who complete the program and return the survey will receive a Starbucks gift card.
Thank you for helping to spread the word, and help us find new ways to address this issue for women!

If you are a woman between the ages of 21-60 and are experiencing stress urinary incontinence (leaking urine with exertion), you may be eligible to participate in a web-based program presenting a new approach to incontinence treatment. We are conducting research to see if an online pelvic floor program is helpful and effective. Our program is three weeks in length and will provide instruction and exercises developed by a physical therapist. All instruction is given exclusively online and is intended to be done independently at home. Please see the following link http://questionpro.com/t/AKFFzZQJEl to review criteria for participation. Thank you.
