Incontinence treatment – Pelvic floor rehabilitation: London physiotherapy
Female and male incontinence
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine and it is a common issue that affects millions of women and men worldwide. Women are affected more commonly than men and most people find the condition embarrassing so they don’t talk to their doctor about it. However, incontinence is a treatable symptom, so you shouldn’t ignore it or think that you have to live with it for the rest of your life.
There are different types of urinary incontinence in women, such as stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overactive bladder etc. Stress incontinence is the most common type that women experience and refers to a leakage when there is too much pressure on the bladder due to activities such as coughing, sneezing, running or jumping. It is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles and it is more common amongst women who have given birth multiple times, obese women or older women.
A lot of women begin to experience incontinence after having given birth multiple times and it generally becomes worse with age, as the pelvic floor muscles weaken naturally. In most cases, physiotherapy can help cure incontinence, but surgery is also available for the more extreme cases. It is never too late to seek treatment, so even if you have lived with incontinence for a long time, you can still be treated with physiotherapy and see outstanding results.
Mummy’s Physio specialises in women’s health and has therefore a lot of experience treating women with incontinence. Our London physiotherapists specialise in incontinence treatment using pelvic floor rehabilitation exercises, the hypopressive method and all the latest techniques in the field. We are also using the most advanced neuromuscular stimulation and biofeedback device, called Phenix, which will help your pelvic floor muscles strengthen and restore continence.
Men are also affected by urinary incontinence, which is often related to prostate problems or treatments. We can also treat some of the incontinences in men, so please get in touch for more details.
