Bladder problems in women

It’s common for women to experience bladder issues like frequent urination, trouble getting to the toilet in time, or leaking when you cough, sneeze or exercise.

Annoying and embarrassing bladder problems can have a huge impact on your life. You might find yourself avoiding enjoyable activities, arranging your daily routine around where the nearest toilets are or waking up exhausted because your bladder has interrupted your sleep.

Many women experience bladder leakage. No matter how light, it doesn’t have to be your new normal.

What Can Embrace Physiotherapy Do for You?

There is strong evidence to support Physiotherapy under the guidance of a Women’s Health Physiotherapist to help manage or even cure your bladder concerns. I will:

  • Conduct a thorough assessment to establish your goals, pelvic floor requirements and treatment plan
  • Design a personalised pelvic floor muscle exercise program to up or down-train your pelvic floor muscles
  • Educate you on normal bladder function, good bladder habits, fluid intake and bladder training
  • I may advise on adjuncts such as the use of a pessary or use of TENS or electrical stimulation.
  • Progress your program and application to daily activities

Like they say…the bladder doesn’t make a great captain but certainly does make for a great soldier. Poor bladder habits do not need to be your new norm. You’ve got this!

My experience with embrace from start to finish was nothing short of professional, warm and understanding. After my third pregnancy, I had lots of dull, heavy tugging pain low in my abdomen. I had also been suffering for years with urinary hesitancy. Went to so many different doctors and specialists to find out what was causing it, with no luck. It was only when I chanced upon embrace’s blog did I get some insight (or even awareness at all) into women’s pelvic health. I wrote in to enquire, and my worries were met with assurance and suggestions, at no cost. Preet is friendly, approachable and made me feel comfortable throughout what could have been an embarrassing therapy. It was so comforting to finally be heard, understood and not dismissed as “this is normal” the way all the doctors had. No amount of reading up compares to having real time feedback with kegels by a trained professional. 6 months in and I feel a world of difference! If anyone out there feels any less about her body after pregnancy or feels pain or discomfort in any way, or resorted to accepting “this is my new normal”, trust me you’re not alone. If you’re living in the east, I’d recommend embrace physiotherapy. They don’t pressure you to commit to regular sessions at all. No harm giving it a shot!

I had excellent experience at Embrace Physiotherapy with Brenda. She was so much helpful on my conditions with patience and caring. I can strongly see significant improvement on my body pains. If you want to know how amazing it is if you have physiotherapy demands, definitely go and meet Brenda there! Highly recommend her and of course Embrace’s friendly service.

I had a fantastic experience visiting Preet’s clinic 6 weeks after I delivered my baby. The physio Alex was detailed, caring and thorough in her assessment of my pelvic floor, back and abdominal muscles. The clinic is a beautiful, calming place and perfect for new mums to get taken care of. Thank you and I would definitely recommend visiting Embrace not just for post-partum issues, but any issues to do with your physical well being particularly for women’s health. Keep up the good work Preet, Alex and the Embrace team!!
