Overcoming Incontinence

Incontinence occurs in men, women and people of all ages. It is not a symptom you should have to live with, nor should you be expected to.

About incontinence:

  • Bladder leakage is NOT a symptom people have to put up with
  • Incontinence occurs in men, women and people of all ages
  • Drinking less fluid is NOT the answer to improving incontinence
  • Incontinence can be managed by seeing a specialist continence physiotherapist
  • An Australian study showed 83% of women with stress incontinence (leakage with cough, sneeze and exercise) were significantly improved in 1-5 treatments with a continence physiotherapist.
  • Pelvic floor exercises are often a key component to management

 What can I do now? (before seeing a continence physio)

  • Take note of frequency of toileting
  • Take note of certain triggers for your incontinence such as cough, sneeze, running, or particular times of urgency
  • Make a booking with Sophie, you do not require a doctors referral to see a continence specialist physio

How can we help?

  • Sophie will assess the factors which influence your incontinence by taking a full medical and lifestyle history as well as using a trans-abdominal Real Time Ultrasound scan of the bladder to look at your ability to activate your pelvic floor muscles.
  • An individually tailored treatment management plan will be established based on these assessment findings.
