Incontinence can affect 1 in 3 women at some point in their life. This can often be following childbirth as a result of the trauma sustained to the pelvic floor during delivery. It can also occur around the menopause due to a decline in oestrogen levels. Oestrogen is crucial to keep the pelvic floor tissues healthy, strong and functioning normally.
Our women's health physiotherapy treatment is delivered with confidentiality and respect. We create a friendly environment to reduce any embarrassment that our patients may feel.
Empowering women to take control of their health
Incontinence can affect 1 in 3 people at some point in their life:
Do you leak when you cough, sneeze or exercise?
Do you constantly have to go to the toilet?
Do you sometimes leak before you get to the toilet?
If you identify with any of the above, pelvic floor physiotherapy could help. If you require any further information or would like to discuss your symptoms further, please contact Melanie
Very often women are embarrassed to seek help and often accept these symptoms as 'normal'. They will use coping strategies to minimise symptoms such as avoiding exercise, reducing fluid intake, going to the toilet frequently and relying on expensive pads.
Our patients are very often surprised to learn that some simple lifestyle advice regarding bladder habits, diet and fluid advice along with pelvic floor re-education can be extremely effective in reducing symptoms and the distress it causes.
“It is a great help to the ladies that have got a problem. I wish I could have come and been seen when my problems first started.”
“I have been very pleased with my progress and all the exercises' given. I found Melanie very professional and motivating.”
"Mel, my physiotherapist is efficient and very sympathetic. I feel safe in her hands.”
“From the second I walked into the building I was made very welcome, very pleasant people indeed. The physiotherapy I needed was explained fully, I also had my privacy at all times. I was asked if I fully understood everything and had I got any questions, If I had it was explained to me again. My condition has improved the physiotherapy has helped me, I cannot thank them enough for their help and kindness.”
