Pelvic physiotherapy is a proven treatment for:
Your pelvic floor may be WEAK or TIGHT!
You are not alone!
Leakage and painful sex can be embarrassing to talk about, but did you know that approximately 3.5 million Canadians over the age of 40 experience accidental urine leakage?.... and most of them do not seek help.
Leaking is NOT a normal part of aging despite all those ads for incontinence products.
You should NOT be suffering through this. It will negatively affect your emotional, physical and social health. Loneliness, stress and embarrassment can result from incontinence, even if it is mild.
If you can't run, jump or walk anymore because of leaking, or are too worried about going out with your friends then it is time for you to look after your pelvic floor muscles!
Just imagine for a minute how alarmed you would be if instead of your pelvic muscles not doing their job it was your leg muscles that suddenly stopped supporting you. You would seek medical help right away.
There are four types of incontinence:
1. Stress - urine leaking from pressure on it such as coughing or sneezing.
2. Urge - an overactive bladder contracts and causes the need to urinate to come on too fast
3. Overflow - overfilled bladder creates a constant dribble
4. Functional - poor mobility makes it hard to get the the bathroom on time (often with seniors)
What contributes to this issue?
The pelvic floor that controls the outflow of urine (like a tap) is a group of muscles that can become weak, too tight or lose their speed (see excellent VIDEO below).
Because these are muscles they can be trained to work again! Pelvic floor (pelvic health) Physiotherapy is a specialized area that is proven to be highly effective in treating urinary incontinence.
In some cases there is an additional need for medication or surgery, but this is rare and should NOT be your first line of treatment.
