Bladder Weakness and Pelvic Pain are common problems affecting thousands of women across Bradford.

Most women are unaware that these problems can be helped with Women’s Health Physiotherapy.

Pelvic Pain, Bladder and Bowel Weakness can start at various times of our lives and for a number of reasons including:

  • During Pregnancy
  • Following Childbirth
  • After Surgical Operations
  • Age-related Bladder Weakness

  Bladder Weakness

It’s great to have a proper chortle, but are you worried about watching your favourite comedian because you leak when you laugh?

Or are you struggling to look after your grandchildren because you struggle to hold onto your wee when you jump up and down?

When you’ve got a cold, does an unexpected cough or sneeze fill you with dread because of your bladder weakness?

You’ll be pleased to know there’s no need for you to suffer the inconvenience and embarrassment of incontinence, leaking or pelvic pain.

At C-Physio, our Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapists can assess how well your pelvic floor is working and provide you with a programme to improve it. If your pelvic floor has been damaged we can ensure you get referred to see the right person to help get it fixed and, in the meantime, help you to recover in the best possible way.

Over the course of several months we will track your progress and make sure you get the best possible care.

Regular exercise such as Pilates can help you work your core muscles, and especially exercise the Pelvic floor muscles to ensure you can increase the amount of stress your pelvic floor can handle in a progressive, safe environment. So, if you’re suffering from Bladder weakness, call 01274 270450 to speak to one of our Women’s Health Physiotherapists and improve the confidence in your pelvic floor today.

  Pelvic Surgery

Gynaecological surgery includes operations such as a hysterectomy, vaginal, bladder or bowel repair, or removal of adhesions.

It is a common misconception that after surgery the pelvic floor has been repaired and will get back to full function without any effort.

Without regular exercise of the pelvic floor, you’ll think your surgery hasn’t been completely successful and there isn’t anything you can do about your continuing incontinence.

But for most women, you can stop the leak.

Following surgery it is important to exercise the pelvic floor to ensure you achieve good sexual function, reduce incontinence and improve your urinary control.

The pain and sensation associated with surgery and its after-effects can stop the pelvic floor muscles working and without regular effort, they become weak and slow to work.

At C-Physio, our Women’s Health Physiotherapists can help you understand how to exercise your pelvic floor effectively and safely, to reduce the chance of leaking when you cough, sneeze and laugh.

So give us a call on 01274 270450 to see how we can help you live a happier, leak-free life.

  Pregnancy Related Pelvic Girdle Pain

Pelvic Pain is common during Pregnancy. It can be caused by the joints at the front or back of the pelvis being stretched, being inflamed through excessive movement, or moving differently with muscles working at a different length than before.

Starting a regular exercise programme to strengthen and control the muscles that surround and support the pelvic, abdominal and back muscles can help you manage and improve pain from these joints.

If you develop pain as your pregnancy progresses, our Physiotherapists can help with a range of exercises and hands-on techniques to reduce your pain and help you to move freely again.

So call C-Physio on 01274 270450 to help ease your Pregnancy Pain today.

  Following Childbirth

Many women find physical exercise after childbirth difficult, not just because they aren’t as fit as before having children, but because it can be difficult to maintain a strong bladder when you are running, jumping up and down, and forgetting about keeping your pelvic floor muscles turned on.

Regular exercise will help to regain muscle tone throughout your body, but unless you specifically work on the pelvic floor and lower abdominal muscles, you won’t necessarily be improving the muscles that contribute to urine control and pelvic pain.

A progressive Pilates and Pelvic Floor exercise regime can increase the strength, control and subconscious activity of your pelvic floor, to improve your confidence when you’re jumping up and down. It can also reduce the pain associated with pelvic floor activity when you go to the toilet.

At C-Physio, you’ll work with your Physiotherapist to ensure you can increase the amount of stress your pelvic floor can handle in a progressive, safe environment.

If you’re a keen runner you might need an additional challenge so that you don’t wee when you run. Or if you have just given birth, you might need to kick-start your pelvic floor recovery with some focussed pelvic floor retraining.

Whatever you need, call us on 01274 270450 to find out what is best for you.
