Women’s Health Physiotherapy For Bladder Weakness
If you’re looking for a solution to Bladder Weakness, you could benefit from Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapy.
Suffering from bladder weakness means compromising on living your life to the full.
From the clothes you wear to the activities you undertake. You are constantly thinking of the best ways to avoid and manage those little leaks.
You’re fed up of the cost of incontinence pads and pantyliners, but you wouldn’t dare to go out of the house without your big knicks to keep your pad in place to mop up any leaks and control the toilet anxiety that follows you on a daily basis.
Life before Bladder Weakness is a distant memory. And when coughing, sneezing and jumping cause little leaks to grow, it’s difficult finding anybody that is willing to talk openly about it.
You’re Not Alone
If bladder weakness is affecting your life, you’re not the only one.
Studies suggest urinary incontinence affects between 3 to 6 million people in the UK. And 32% of women in the UK will have suffered some form of urinary incontinence in the past 30 days.
Urinary incontinence is a common problem that is understandably difficult to discuss around the dinner table. Trying to find out which of your friends are suffering with bladder weakness after childbirth or urinary incontinence in older age will usually be met with either an awkward refusal to discuss the problem or chaotic laughter (making the problem worse still).
But no matter what anybody says, if studies are accurate, it is likely that the majority will have had some form of bladder weakness that they’ve either struggled with, or masking with pads and activity avoidance.
A Taboo Subject
Bladder weakness is still a taboo subject. And although nobody seems to want to talk about it, getting the right advice and treatment is not difficult.
At C-Physio, our Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapists are open to discussing any form of bladder weakness, no matter how problematic, how big or small.
From little leaks when you jump on the trampoline, to a complete loss of urine when you sneeze, your Physiotherapist will undertake a full Pelvic assessment, including an internal examination if required.
Your pelvic floor muscles will be assessed for strength and tone, and you’ll understand how scars, stretch marks, weight gain, caffeine and activities can affect your bladder weakness.
More Chic, Less Leak
Following your assessment your Women’s Health Physiotherapist will provide you with a range of advice on ways to manage your pelvic health. They can also offer active treatment to regain your bladder control and pelvic muscle strength.
Advice to help improve your bladder function might include:
- Changing your fluid intake
- Identifying foods that reduce irritation of your bladder
- Providing exercises for pelvic floor strength and control
