Urinary and Faecal Incontinence

One in three women suffer from incontinence!

Stress incontinence (where urine leaks due to an increase in pressure such as a cough, sneeze or laugh), urgency incontinence (urine that is leaked with a sudden urge to go to the toilet) or faecal incontinence (the loss of faeces or faecal staining) are common problems and can be addressed.

The pelvic floor muscles can be weak or sometimes too tight, constipation can play a part and physiotherapy is highly effective in treating and managing these symptoms.

Sometimes women feel because they have had children that it means it is then normal to have incontinence, prolapse or a weak pelvic floor, but this does not have to be the case.
