Urinary incontinence (accidentally wetting yourself) is thought to affect 1 in 3 women in the UK.  Physiotherapy can be very beneficial in managing and reducing symptoms of incontinence by having an assessment of your pelvic floor activation technique and muscle strength and being prescribed appropriate exercises.

If you are struggling with any involuntary loss of urine when coughing, laughing, sneezing, lifting, jumping or with any other exertion, or you are struggling with uncontrollable urges to pass urine before getting to a toilet, you are likely to benefit from seeing a Women’s Health Physiotherapist.
