Does bladder leakage stop you doing the things you love: playing with your children or grandchildren; socialising with friends, exercising or having sex?
Know that you are not alone. 40% of women over 30 experience bladder leakage. Urinary incontinence is not a lethal condition but it is certainly not a glamorous one. Bladder leakage, no matter how light, is not normal and most cases can be cured or better managed.
There are many factors that can lead to pelvic floor problems and/or incontinence:
A chronic cough
High impact sport
There are different types of incontinence and many causes so it is important that you get an assessment done so a treatment plan can be put in place.
Incontinence, prolapse, pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction are all common problems and often poorly addressed or treated.
Physiotherapy can help!
A physiotherapy assessment can help to identify issues and aid in effectively resolving pelvic floor conditions.
Almost every exercise that you do has an impact on your pelvic floor. This doesn't mean that you can no longer exercise if you are symptomatic. It just means you need to understand how your body works and what is appropriate for you. This is how physiotherapy can help.
