Talking About Womens Health with eightWest

WOOD TV’s eightWest welcomed us back once again and this time around we talked about women’s health. 

Imagine you’re out with your girlfriends having a great time, enjoying a glass of wine, you get to laughing, when “oops, I think I just peed a little!” Laughter can quickly turn to embarrassment when its accompanied by a little urinary leakage.

It may have started happening after you had your baby, as you got older, or after surgery. But the important thing to remember is that you’re not alone. Urinary incontinence affects millions of women of all ages, not just the elderly. Its an embarrassing topic to talk about, but there is a solution and the sooner you can get it looked at, the better your chances of making a full recovery.

Keeping these issues to yourself because you’re embarrassed or because you think it’s normal is really only doing more harm. Its not uncommon for women to have leakage after childbirth, with sporting activities, or as we age; however this is something that shouldn’t be labelled as normal.

Check out our full interview with WOOD TV, and eightWest and Rachael Ruiz below, and if you have any questions on women’s health, bladder issues, or incontinence, give us a call at 616.997.6172.

See our previous eightWest segment with Jordan Carson where we talked about direct access and how it effects healthcare and physical therapy in Michigan.
