Peezing:

   verb

Sneezing and peeing at the same time.

One of the most common phrases I hear in my practice is “I had no idea there was physical therapy for this!”  Although it gaining more exposure, many women still have not heard of pelvic floor physical therapy.  A great deal of women I treat have been dealing with pelvic floor musculature dysfunction for YEARS.  As you probably already know, physical therapists are specialists in the musculoskeletal system.  What you may not know, is a pelvic floor physical therapist has had more specialized training in the muscles that are known as your pelvic floor.

Pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles (not just one) that attach along the brim of your pelvis.  They are oriented like a hammock from your tailbone in the back and your pubic bone in the front. The pelvic floor’s main functions are helping control urination, sexual function, helping control bowel movements, core stability, and organ support.  When these muscles are not functioning properly, incontinence (which includes peezing), constipation, a heaviness feeling, and/or pelvic pain may occur.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact MOSAIC and we can discuss if physical therapy will be beneficial for you.

So there, now you have a name for when you sneeze and pee at the same time, aaannnndddd you know there is help for these symptoms.  Don’t let peezing be your normal!
