Did you know that many cases of incontinence can be improved through physiotherapy?

Leaking isn’t just a symptom of a weak pelvic floor; it could also be a sign of muscles that are too tight as a result of knots in the pelvic floor, endometriosis or even constipation.

A specialist physio can help you address these issues through a set of exercises and treatments that include using weighted vaginal cones, pelvic floor exercises, bladder retraining and neuromuscular stimulation. 

Visit our Incontinence Centre for more on managing this condition.
