Bladder and Pelvic Floor Health
Many people experience problems with their bladder or pelvic floor at different stages in life. If you’re one of them, read on to find out how physiotherapy can help.
Is your bladder the boss?
Do you avoid certain activities? Check where the nearest toilets are before you head out? Feel exhausted from broken sleep due to frequent loo trips? Many people experience bladder leakage, but there’s no need to suffer silently, because most cases can be cured or successfully managed.
• Accidentally leaking urine when you exercise, laugh, cough or sneeze • Constantly needing the loo, needing in a hurry or not making it in time • Finding it difficult to empty your bladder or bowel • Accidentally losing control of your bladder or bowel, or passing wind • A prolapse (occurs as a bulge in the vagina or a feeling of heaviness, discomfort, pulling, dragging or dropping) • Pain in your pelvic area, or during sex
Pelvic floor letting you down?
Some women have weak pelvic floor muscles from an early age, while others notice problems after certain life stages such as pregnancy, childbirth or menopause. Many find their pelvic floor muscles become stretched, weakened or too tight. Physiotherapy can help ease and, in many cases, cure symptoms.
Many things can weaken your pelvic floor: Under or over-using your pelvic floor muscles • Being overweight • Pregnancy and giving birth • A history of back pain • Ongoing constipation and difficulty emptying bowels • Repeated heavy lifting (at work or gym) • Chronic coughing or sneezing (such as from asthma, smoking or hay fever) • Previous pelvic injury (giving birth, surgery or pelvic radiotherapy) • Ageing
