“How do you treat incontinence in female runners?” is probably one of the questions I get the most. It even came up recently during a live webinar for pediatric professionals. Here are some tips I shared for altering a runners form to address leaks during a run. Leaning into the run from the ankles to passively get the rib cage over the pelvis (the “ski jump”) and changing visual cues can improve their access to the Diaphragm/Pelvic Floor Piston relationship and glutes; optimize structural support for the continence mechanism; improve propulsion and simultaneously reduce the demand on the system. Sounds like a win-win: faster and drier.
