Urinary Incontinence Only When Using Rebounder
I have been using my rebounder for so long I have worn it out. But I still have the same question I had when I started to use it. When I jump I have to wear a kotex pad because of a little leak every time I land.
Is this normal?
I am a 44 year old female with 4 children and 20 lbs overweight. I eat fair, sleep well, and exercise in some way twice a day. I do my Kegel exercises and don't have a problem with urinary incontinence at any other time.
Some days when I jump for 30 minutess I can fill an overnight pad. I even stop to go pee in the middle of the session.
Urinary incontinence is common for women who have had multiple children. Have you always had this problem, or only after the multiple births?
It is unusual that you only experience these issues when rebounding, as opposed to exercise in general.
Do you know what brand of rebounder you have? I ask because low-quality rebounders can make urinary incontinence symptoms much worse.
That's because cheaper rebounders have springs that don't absorb much of the shock of bouncing. The jarring effect could be what's causing the leakage.
If it is a high-quality rebounder like Needak (see best rebounders
for why I like Needak), perhaps the springs have worn out from so much use.
Springs have a limited life-span. Some more classic springs break when worn out.
Springs with newer designs, that absorb even more impact, don't break but instead lose some of their ability to "spring" back. It can be difficult to notice when they need replacing.
Springs from Needak need replacing every 5 to 6 years (or after a million bounces).
So I would check the quality of the rebounder you have.
If it is a cheaper model, upgrade to Needak's soft-bounce model.
If it is a high-quality model, try replacing the springs and see if that helps.
Rebounding is actually an excellent exercise for reversing urinary incontinence. But only if it is a high-quality model in good condition.
Wishing you the best of health,
