More than a million New Zealanders experience some sort of urinary incontinence each month and more than half of mothers are estimated to suffer from a pelvic floor prolapse… which is a shame because it’s generally very treatable. It doesn’t require surgery and it’s not just something you have to live with.
If you leak a little urine when you cough, laugh, sneeze or exercise; if you have to rush to the toilet and you leak before you can get there then you should know there are highly effective, conservative treatments available.
If you’d like to know more about how you can live leak-free. You might want to start by watching this great primer on the topic by Claire Baker at TEDx Tauranga, grab a copy of “Hold it Sister”, by Mary O’Dwyer, or of course book an appointment with our Pelvic Health Physio, Dot Nacewa right now.
