Is Your Bladder Negatively Affecting your Social Life?

When making frequent and urgent trips to the bathroom can affect your social life

Do you know where every bathroom in town is?
Are you extra aware of bathroom locations in every store you go into?
Do you have to stop multiple times during even a short road trip?
Are your frequent bathroom trips impeding your social time?

If this sounds like you, your pelvic floor may actually be the culprit. The good thing is, we can help!

If you have experienced bladder or bowel issues, you know how they can impede on your social life. From needling to rush to the bathroom in the middle of a conversation with a friend, to multiple bathroom trips while out for dinner, it can be very disruptive.

Well, we are here to help!

The pelvic floor muscles are a common cause of bladder issues, including urinary urgency and frequency. When your pelvic floor is tight or tense, this can place extra strain on the bladder. This extra strain can irritate the bladder, causing you to feel like you need to go to the bathroom more often than you would like, or feelings that you need to rush to the bathroom right away. When you are experiencing either of these, chances are you are extra aware of where the bathrooms are located wherever you are.

On the other hand, if you are experiencing pelvic floor weakness, this can contribute to urinary incontinence leaving you unable to make it to the bathroom in time. Again, when you know you experience trouble with bladder leaking, you may feel you need to use the bathroom more often than others to avoid these problems.

If your bladder problems are disrupting your social life, you may benefit from seeing a pelvic floor PT.

Your PT can determine what the problem may be and help guide you through a personalized program. Working with a pelvic floor PT may be just what your body needs to help you regain an uninterrupted social life!

Imagine the joys of shopping without worrying about your bladder or going out to eat with family without extra bathroom trips! If your bladder issues are affecting your social life, give us a call and schedule an appointment with one of our pelvic health physical therapists today!
