Urinary incontinence is nothing to sneeze at

Most interesting story in The Age re increased incidence of urinary incontinence in female athletes – see http://www.theage.com.au/executive-style/-gzjy2m.html . Apparently young females think that pelvic floor muscles are something yucky and for old folk. (Maybe we need a PFM Week?) More worrying is that a great proportion of those surveyed do not seek treatment for urinary leakage. This is not baby boomer males we’re talking about here, but 15 – 19 year old females.
