We all know the dreadful feeling of needing the bathroom suddenly to empty the bowels while having coffee with friends or while out shopping and how humiliating and embarrassing it is to be caught short and pass stool.
Imagine the awful feeling with an over whelming urge to empty your bowel and not making it to the bathroom on time. Worse still, is the fear of not being able to control wind or gas. However, help is available to give yourself back your freedom without fear of bowel leaks and to ensure optimal bowel emptying and solve constipation!
Aoife Ni Eochaidh, Chartered Physiotherapist and Winner of the BPW & Irish Permanent Galway ‘Young Business Woman of Year’ award offers physiotherapy for men, women and children for pelvic conditions and incontinence.
Aoife is an experienced and passionate chartered physiotherapist who runs her private clinic from Suite 14, Bon Secours Consultant Clinic in Renmore, Galway. Aoife wishes all her patients a very happy New Year and hopes patients can try to keep up their pelvic floor exercises, electrotherapy and retraining in the New Year!
Some of Aoife’s patients may wish to attend again after Christmas for a refresher course of treatment. Aoife advises keeping up the pelvic floor training for life for optimal results and it’s never too late to start again or begin properly. Weak pelvic floor muscles can give bowel symptoms of difficulty emptying the bowel, bowel Incontinence (wind and stool ) and vaginal wall and bowel prolapse.
Aoife cautions that when the bowel is not emptying fully it can be a real drain on our energy levels, it can affect our sleep and our ability to undertake our general exercise. Aoife uses modern non-invasive evidence-based technologies to treat the root cause and ensure excellent results. Aoife is highly experienced and skilled in the use of a large tool box of treatments.
You are never too old for this successful therapy. Bowel incontinence doesn’t just affect those that have had children, any woman of any age can have it, even top athletes and men too. Getting older and the menopause can make bowel problems worse.
Don’t just hide it or manage it with pads, leaks on pads are so abrasive to our delicate skin. Get your confidence and life back, wear your nice clothes, have a good quality of life, travel with ease and go on holidays without fear of bowel leaks! Embrace the New Year from the inside out and get fit & healthy for 2020!
Talk to your doctor, or enquire with Aoife about attending for pelvic physiotherapy for chronic constipation, difficulty moving the bowels or for faecal urgency or incontinence.
