Womens Health Physiotherapy is the treatment of problems within the pelvis or pelvic floor muscles. It is thought that one in three women will experience urinary incontinence at some point in their life. This number increases to around 50% of women participating in sports. Although incontinence is very common it is not normal and can be treated.
- Stress urinary incontinence (involuntary loss of urine with exertion, for example when coughing, laughing, running or jumping)
- Urge urinary incontinence (leakage of urine when you cannot make it to the toilet in time)
- Pelvic Organ Prolapse
- Pain with sex
- Diastasis Rectus Abdominis (Separation of the stomach muscles, common at the end of pregnancy and post-natally)
- Pregnancy pain both ante and post-natally (pelvic girdle pain, rib pain and back pain)
Problems can occur for many reasons which can include:
- Childbirth, including obstetric injury
- Lifestyle factors
- Weak pelvic floor muscles
- Over-active pelvic floor muscles
- Poor co-ordination of muscles around the pelvis
Stress Urinary incontinence is prevalent in women during exertion such as running, there is no need to be embarrassed about it, and there is plenty you can do to get it better.
