Incontinence – How to get dry!
Did you know that a Physiotherapist can help you with your bladder problems?
There are millions of people around the world who have issues with incontinence and think that’s its normal, especially following the birth of a child or as we get older. It is important to understand why you are incontinent and how it can be fixed. By adhering a proper treatment plan you can lead your life dry!
A physiotherapist can educate you simple modifications to your diet such as avoiding caffeine-based fluids, which can make you go to the toilet more often. In addition, distraction and relaxation techniques such as toes curling or contracting pelvic floor muscles can help delay voiding, this can give you some extra time to get to the bathroom. By using these strategies, over time we can train the bladder to accommodate progressively larger voiding volumes.
