World Continence Week is an initiative of the International Continence Society to raise the profile of bladder and bowel health internationally.
In Australia, the theme for World Continence Week 2011 is 'exercise and the pelvic floor'. Did you know that almost every exercise you do affects your pelvic floor? And that some exercises can actually harm these muscles, leading to bladder or bowel control problems?
The Continence Foundation and its state branches will be organising activities for the public and the fitness industry to promote pelvic floor safe exercise.
