This article has got me mad. I'm not the type to get mad easily but the fact that this is being published and shared is making me go 😡
😡It obviously intends to empower women to 'pad up and play on' if they have stress incontinence, but completely misses the point that this issue is preventable and curable with help from a Women's Health Physio (and gynae if further management is needed). Don't empower women by normalising incontinence - empower women by showing them how to seek help to prevent and manage incontinence.
😡it encourages the misconception that urinary incontinence is due to 'bladder weakness'. Your bladder is not weak, it's the tissues around and under it that should be supporting it that are weak and possibly damaged if you have stress urinary incontinence. And these are the same tissues that support the bowel/rectum/anus and prevent anal incontinence - I wonder if this woman will finally admit there's a problem that needs addressing if she also starts 'pooping herself', as she puts it...?
😡it gives Crossfit a bad name, especially in the Women's Health community, and after doing The Female Athlete course with @physiodetective Antony Lo, I am even more aware of promoting that it's not the type of exercise, but the way you exercise that is the issue. Crossfit is not the enemy, but publications that spread this message are. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 Don't stop exercising - but learn how to exercise in a way that does no harm 🙏 and please don't use leaking with exercise as a bragging tool for pushing the limits.
