Stress Urinary Incontinence is a common problem and can occur at any age. Described as the leaking of urine when coughing, sneezing, lifting or performing any activity that puts stress on the pelvic floor. An individualised pelvic floor exercise program and management of general fitness is effective in treating SUI in women of all ages.
Overactive Bladder or Urge Urinary Incontinence is described as a frequent and sudden urge to urinate that may be difficult to control and can result in the unintentional leakage of urine.
Physiotherapists can teach bladder calming techniques and strategies to retrain the bladder to reduce the symptoms of OAB.
