Bladder, Bowel and Gynaecological Problems

Urinary and faecal incontinence are common problems affecting women of all ages

Urinary Problems

Urinary incontinence affects more than 1 million people in the UK, though many women don’t seek treatment because they are embarrassed or they believe it is a “normal” consequence of pregnancy, childbirth or ageing.

The pelvic floor muscles are an integral (often forgotten) player in your core. They control continence. If the pelvic floor muscles are weak and/or not coordinated they cannot generate enough strength, causing leakage. On the other hand, if your muscles are overactive, you may also leak.

Common Diagnosis and Symptoms may include:

  • Incontinence (stress, urge or mixed)
  • Painful bladder syndrome/Interstitial Cystitis
  • Incomplete voiding or straining
  • Frequent urination
  • Frequent urinary tract infections or feeling of UTIs without presence of bacteria

I will perform a full evaluation including posture and movement analysis, breathing patterns and a pelvic floor muscle examination to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Bowel Issues

There can be many medical reasons for bowel disorders. I am able to evaluate and treat the musculoskeletal components of bowel dysfunction by identifying and treating tightness or weakness in the abdomen, low back or pelvic floor muscles caused by IBS, constipation, and other bowel disorders.

Common Diagnosis and Symptoms may include:

  • Bowel frequency, urgency, and/or incomplete emptying
  • Difficulty getting clean following a bowel movement
  • Constipation
  • Rectal pain, low back pain, hip pain, stomach pain and/or abdominal pain
  • Rectal pressure or rectal spasm
  • Feacal incontinence
  • Coccyx pain or a feeling of fullness in the rectum
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Levator ani syndrome
  • Anal fissure
