Fort HealthCare, in conjunction with the National Association for Continence, is proud to offer a FREE pelvic floor strengthening class: BE STRONG – Building Strength from the Inside Out! This free continence class will focus on the anatomy of the pelvic floor, as well as how to build and maintain strength for optimal pelvic floor health.
The number of Americans that experience some type of incontinence is staggering, however, many of them do not seek treatment: on average, it takes a woman 7 years to even get a diagnosis of incontinence after experiencing symptoms. Many suffer in silence due to embarrassment of the condition or the notion that incontinence is just something that happens as we age. And for some, incontinence can be truly debilitating, affecting family, social, and work life.
The goals for this class are to provide education on the pelvic floor, to empower patients to take charge of their pelvic health, and to seek additional treatment if they feel they may need it.
