This unique local service has been warmly welcomed by local GPs and boasts many delighted patients who have put years of urinary discomfort behind them!
Urinary leakage is a common symptom post pregnancy, post gynaecological surgery or even years later for many women. The distressing urge to pass water on laughing, coughing, walking, running or other exercise is a sign of a poorly functioning pelvic floor. Left untreated, it can become life altering, as it limits active choices women may make in later years.
The pelvic floor is a bowl of muscle is the base of the pelvis that acts to hold in and up the contents of the abdomen, including the bladder and bowel. A pelvic floor weakened by birth trauma or other issues can rehabilitate exceptionally well, even after years of inadequate activation.
Continence Rehab is highly specialised and individualised. Here at TherapyXperts Physio, one of Ireland’s leading physiotherapy academics, Elizabeth Culleton-Quinn, is available by appointment only to treat and rehabiliate this specialised condition.
