Many Australians, male and female, are affected by incontinence (poor bladder or bowel control) but we’re often too embarrassed to talk about it. Our experienced physiotherapists can assess you and help to significantly improve or cure symptoms.
How can PhysioWest help?
Physiotherapy is a highly effective and evidence-based approach for managing incontinence in both adults and children. Different physiotherapy techniques can be adapted to treat incontinence depending on its cause. Pelvic floor muscles are essential in bladder and bowel control, pelvic organ support and sexual function. They are also core stabilisers for the pelvis and lumbar spine. Incontinence can also be caused by factors like bladder and bowel habits, constipation, menopause, childbirth and pregnancy, prostate issues and prolapse. Our experienced physios can help you with a customised treatment plan.
- Incontinence can cause leakage when you cough, sneeze, exercise or move.
- Frequently needing to pass urine with a strong, sudden urgency.
- Lack of strength and control of pelvic floor muscles can be addressed through personalised exercise programs.
- Exercise programs are customised by your physio to increase muscle strength, and reduce symptoms.
