People of all ages can experience issues with continence and pelvic floor muscle weakness. Incontinence, where there is an accidental or involuntary loss of control of the bladder or bowel resulting in leakage of urine or faeces, is a wide spread condition which ranges in its degree of severity.
Incontinence affects many people, including young children who have respiratory conditions; sports men and women; women experiencing pregnancy related weakness, post-delivery complications or menopause; people with post-surgical or cancer issues (hysterectomy, prostatectomy); and those with age related problems or suffering a range of chronic conditions such as asthma, COPD, obesity, diabetes, arthritis or neurological conditions.
