Mind Over Bladder: A Holistic Approach to Bladder Health for Women (Flyer)

Location: Franklin Public Library, Fadrow Room, 9151 W. Loomis Road
Register Online Keyword: bladder or call 414-328-7788

Do you struggle with bladder issues such as leakage, urgency, or frequency? Many women do. No matter what your age, bladder issues are never normal and there is help. These symptoms should not be considered a normal part of aging or blamed on being a woman. In fact, they are very treatable. 

Join Megan Rorabeck, PT, DPT, WCS, and author of Between the Hips: A Practical Guide for Women in an information session to learn how to improve not only your bladder health, but your pelvic health as a whole.  You will have an opportunity to ask questions (anonymously if desired).  You will learn:

  • How the bladder works so you can be in control 
  • How fluids affect your bladder and why drinking water is important
  • Lifestyle and behavioral management techniques
  • How your bowel and pelvic health can affect your bladder health

Residents 60 and older are invited to participate in a 7-week workshop, “Stepping On.” This workshop can help seniors avoid a dangerous and costly fall so they can keep doing the things they love. Our guest experts include a Physical Therapist, Pharmacist, Vision expert, and Franklin Safety Officer.

Seniors will learn how to identify and remove or avoid fall hazards in the home and outside, how vision, medication, and footwear affect your risk of falling. Simple strength and balance exercises will increase self-confidence and enhance your sense of independence.  Falls are not an inevitable part of aging. If you feel you have lost some strength and balance, this may be “just the ticket.”
