Don’t suffer in silence! 1 in 3 women experience incontinence of urine; it is very common but it is not normal. It is treatable and seeing a women’s health physiotherapist will help you understand your symptoms, have a diagnosis and an effective treatment plan. Around the time of having a baby you are more vulnerable to pelvic floor weakness and urinary incontinence. Knowing what your pelvic floor does, where it is and how to look after it will help prevent urinary leakage and enable you to live a normal life. We understand that leaking urine causes emotional distress and impacts on your social, family, work and sex life. Many women feel that wearing pads is all that they can do. The NHS is working hard to improve awareness of women’s health issues and women’s health physiotherapists are key in the treatment of women with continence issues.
