Urinary Incontinence

Urinary Incontinence

There are two types of incontinence, stress urinary incontinence and urge urinary incontinence. 

Stress urinary incontinence is when you leak urine with a cough, sneeze, movement or exercise.

Urge urinary incontinence is when you get a strong urge to urinate and may leak on the way to the bathroom. 

It’s common to have a combination of both, referred to as Mixed Urinary Incontinence. A pelvic therapist can help with either type, treatment will differ slightly depending on which type you have.  

Pelvic health pregnancy

Pregnancy and Delivery

Pelvic physiotherapy can help get your pelvic floor muscles in the best possible shape before delivery. Having a pelvic floor that is as strong and flexible as possible is very important for delivery. A weak pelvic floor can make you more susceptible to prolapse, incontinence and make for a more difficult recovery. Having tightness in your pelvic floor can make delivery more difficult and make you more susceptible to tearing. 

Pelvic floor physiotherapy can help your changing body throughout pregnancy and help you prepare for delivery. It is recommended you see a pelvic therapist in your second trimester of pregnancy. 

Post menopause pelvic health

Post Menopausal Pelvic Issues

Leaking, urges, overactive bladder are all common postmenopausal pelvic issues. Pelvic health physiotherapy can improve or abolish leaking, frequent urges and trips to the bathroom no matter what age! We are often told these symptoms are a normal part of aging and there is nothing you can do, but this is simply not true! Treatment is highly successful and often combines a combination of exercises, urge suppression, bladder retraining and education. Don’t let your bladder control you- lets put you back in charge! 

post natal pelvic health

Post Natal Pelvic Physiotherapy

A post-natal assessment will look for a diastasis recti (splitting of your abdominal muscles), posture, inner and outer core strength, pelvic floor strength, scar tissue, prolapse and lower back and pelvic alignment and mechanics.

We will discuss any issues you may be having like painful intercourse, leaking, core weakness and discuss when it’s safe to return to activity. It is recommended you book an assessment 6 weeks after delivery, after you have been cleared by your medical doctor. 

Is it necessary to see a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist if you had a C-section? Yes! No matter how you gave birth, pregnancy puts a lot of stress on your pelvic floor muscles, and your core will be significantly impacted by your caesarean birth.

Seeing Carly for pelvic floor physiotherapy twice in preparation before labour was extremely helpful for me. She explains the anatomy of the female reproductive system in an easy-to-understand way, that helps make the home care exercises she suggests very accessible. I felt much more confident for labour and delivery because of Carly. My whole experience at the clinic felt supportive, thorough and very safe. I would recommend Carly to anyone looking for support while trying to conceive, during pregnancy and post-partum, I just couldn’t imagine doing it without her!
