Female Bladder, Bowel & Gynaecological Problems

These are very common and can include incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic pain symptoms:

 

  • Frequency passing urine – going to the toilet to pass urine more than 6-8 times a day 
  • Urgency, urge incontinence and overactive bladder – a sudden compelling urge to pass urine, and maybe leaking on the way to the toilet
  • Stress urinary incontinence – caused by a rise in intra-abdominal pressure (eg coughing, sneezing, shouting, laughing, lifting, bending or standing up from sitting)
  • Faecal urgency and/or incontinence – a sudden strong urge to open the bowels, and/or not making it to the toilet and losing stool
  • Difficulty controlling wind

Female Focus Clinic Model

  • Pelvic organ prolapse (bladder, bowel or uterus) – when the bladder, womb or bowel bulges into the vaginal walls
  • Exercise induced incontinence or prolapse – common in women doing exercise to all levels and all abilities (especially common in those doing impact exercise, CrossFit, weightlifters and runners)
  • Rehabilitation after gynaecological surgery, including hysterectomy
  • Sexual dysfunction (including urinary leakage during intercourse and / or pain during intercourse)

 

Physiotherapy assessment and treatment can help in all of these areas.  Contact Babs at Female Focus for more information.
