Incontinence & Overactive Bladder

Body And Birth Logo
RESTORE YOUR PELVIC FLOOR SAFELY AND EFFECTIVELY!

At Body and Birth we understand that leaking of bladder and bowel can be at best a minor annoyance, and at worst stressful, embarrassing, and uncomfortable! However, this is not something you just need to put up with as there are solutions and treatments.

 

We have extensive experience treating and educating on Incontinence and helping you feel empowered and confident in your body. 

 

WHAT IT IS:

Incontinence refers to the unintentional escape of urine or stool from the bladder or bowel. This loss can but can also be associated with things as simple as sneezing and range from just a little bit of "sneeze pee", to complete loss of control. It is often associated with high load movements such as jumping and running, walking, or urgency. Although this is may be a common condition for many women, this does not mean it is normal and something you need to be dealing with in your everyday life - Our physios are here to help!

SYMPTOMS YOU MAY NOTICE:

Urge Incontinence

  • Frequent and uncontrollable need to urinate

  • This urge may cause leaking of urine, either a few drops or a larger amount

 

Stress Incontinence

  • Involuntary loss of urine, especially with physical pressures

  • For example, when you cough, sneeze, or laugh, during exercise, lifting children, or with sudden movements

  • Leaking a small to large amount of urine

 

If you're feeling any of these symptoms or you're unsure of something, especially post-baby, we highly recommend you come see us and get your pelvic floor and core function assessed by one of our qualified women's health physios.

 

YOUR TREATMENT:

We understand every woman, every pregnancy, and every situation is different, so we create and design your treatment program and education to suit your needs and goals. You can expect:

​​

  • Detailed history taking and understanding your current concerns.

  • Education regarding your condition and how the core and pelvic floor muscles work.

  • Alignment and movement assessment.

  • A pelvic exam (external and possibly internal as required).

  • Assessment of abdominal muscles and core function.

  • Hands-on treatment as needed to help restore optimal biomechanics.

  • A guided exercise program to help you restore mobility, strength, and function.

 

You'll receive a custom-tailored plan designed to help you achieve your goals, complete with at home exercises that are easy to understand and follow. 

 

Following your initial assessment, you'll also receive a follow-up call from your physio to see how you're doing and if you have any questions.
