Incontinence, bladder leakage, wetting yourself.
Whatever you call it, leaking urine can be a major disruption to your life.
Scared to exercise. Constantly hunting for toilets. Sick of wearing pads. You just can’t trust your bladder. Can you relate?
When it stops you from exercising, you lose muscle tone, gain weight and feel unfit. Your self-esteem drops, your confidence is down the drain, and it can even hinder your sex life.
There is no reason to just accept it! It can almost always be helped or resolved with pelvic floor physiotherapy. Getting the right exercises is crucial though – as doing the wrong exercises can actually make the problem worse.
Let’s say you have tried pelvic floor exercises before without success. You’ve learnt them off the internet, or from what someone’s told you. You’ve never had an internal assessment by a pelvic floor physio. Well, you haven’t actually had a fair trial!
So maybe you’re doing them wrong. Don’t get down on yourself – how were you to know? If everyone was doing them right, pelvic floor physiotherapists wouldn’t exist! So come and take advantage of our expertise.
But let’s get real. Much of the time the problem is that you just haven’t been doing them. Maybe you’ve been checked and you know you’re doing them right, but you just never seem to remember!
STEP 1 – EDUCATE YOURSELF
Read my articles on tips for sticking with your pelvic floor exercises, why you shouldn’t do them at red traffic lights, and how singing can be a pelvic floor exercise.
