Men’s and Women’s Health Physio Canberra
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 widespread condition which ranges in degree of severity.
Incontinence affects many people, including young children who have respiratory conditions; sportsmen 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.
There are many different types of incontinence and related conditions with a number of different causes. At Southside Physiotherapy, our physiotherapists can assist you with
– Bladder urinary retention issues
– Stress incontinence
– Urge incontinence
– Functional incontinence
– Incontinence associated with chronic retention
– Incomplete emptying
– Voiding dysfunction
– Poor bladder or bowel habits
– Pelvic floor muscle weakness
Our highly skilled physiotherapists can help you treat, manage and in many cases cure these conditions. They will teach you the correct techniques to strengthen the right pelvic floor muscles for your needs, and tailor a specific program for you to help you develop better bladder and bowel lifestyle habits.
Please book an appointment with our Men’s Health or Women’s Health Specialist Physio if you need assistance with incontinence or other pelvic health conditions.
