Inner North Physiotherapy provide quality care for incontinence to the local areas of Thornbury, Northcote, Westgarth, Brunswick, Preston, Coburg, Fairfield, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Abbotsford, Alphington and Reservoir.
Incontinence (poor bladder or bowel control) is common. An estimated 4 million Australians are affected by Urinary Incontinence alone, and it is known that at least one in three women that have had a baby suffers with incontinence at some stage.
Often people are too embarrassed to talk about these issues, but a properly trained Continence Physiotherapist will conduct a sensitive, comprehensive examination, and often help to significantly improve or cure the symptoms.
Many factors can affect healthy bladder and bowel control including: pelvic floor muscle strength and control; bladder and bowel habits; constipation; menopause; childbirth and pregnancy; prostate issues and prolapse.
The Pelvic Floor Muscles are essential in bladder and bowel control and are also important in pelvic organ support, sexual function as well as core stabilizers for the pelvis and lumbar spine. Remember to do your pelvic floor exercises today and see our experienced Physiotherapist if you are unsure of how to activate these muscles properly.
Our Physiotherapists Adriane Khabulyuk, Alison Harding and Jennifer Langford share many years experience in Public Continence Clinics and have Post graduate qualifications (University of Melbourne) in Continence & Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation. Jennifer is an invited lecturer, tutor and clinical supervisor at the University of Melbourne’s Post Graduate Pelvic Floor course . Ali, Adriane and Jen have particular interest in Persistent Pain Syndromes affecting the pelvis including Vulvodynia Dyspareunia, Vaginismus, VVS, Male pelvic pain and Chronic Pelvic Pain.
