Do you leak urine with coughing and sneezing, or when you run with your growing bump or after your toddler? Do you sometimes have to rush to the loo and sometimes leak urine before you get there?
Worse still, is the fear of faecal incontinence! Stress and urge urinary incontinence can be treated! Imagine how good it would feel to be dry again. It is possible to have your freedom and happiness back. Pelvic girdle, back and neck pain can be a problem for pregnant and post-natal women, but help is available with physiotherapy to get the back, neck, pelvis, hip and tummy back in shape and treat any other muscle or joint niggles.
Stay fit and enjoy your pregnancy and maternity leave without pain with physiotherapy for ante-natal care and pain relief. Pregnant and new mums want to get back to exercising, to maintain a healthy weight or to lose baby weight, but unfortunately, those leaks and pain can put them off exercise when pregnant or when returning to normal exercise.
Training weak pelvic floor muscles can be challenging. Some women find it difficult to activate these muscles and are unsure if they are doing their exercises correctly. Expert help is available with Richard and Aoife who have a large tool-box of treatment techniques to treat the root cause and get you back enjoying life with baby or bump!
