A few questions to ask:
Do you know where every bathroom is no matter where you go?
Do you always make sure you pee just in case?
Do you need to run to the bathroom every time you exercise or workout? Even if you have just gone?
Have you been told needing to wear a pad is normal now because you’ve become a Mom?
Incontinence is any involuntary loss of urine. It can occur as a little leak or full flood — the amount of loss does not matter. Whether you are jumping on your kid’s trampoline, running, sneezing, lifting your kids or just unable to make it to the bathroom in time, any amount of urine loss is a sign of an underlying issue in the pelvic floor.
The Cochrane Collaboration 2010 concluded that Physiotherapists with specialized training in pelvic floor rehabilitation should be the first line of defense before surgical consultation for stress, urge and mixed incontinence in women.
Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy has been shown to be 80% effective in improving and even curing stress urinary incontinence.
