Don’t Let Incontinence Affect Your Life

Incontinence is a very common problem, affecting over 4 million Australians. It is a distressing condition that can majorly impact ones quality of life. Approximately with 1 in 3 women and 1 in 10 men will experience leakage at some point in their lives.

However, don’t despair! Urinary incontinence is very treatable, in most cases without surgery.

Do you have any of the following incontinence symptoms?

  • When you laugh, sneeze, cough or exercise, do you sometimes leak a small amount of urine?
  • Are you ever “caught short” by a sudden, strong urge to pass urine?
  • Do you arrange your daily routine around where the nearest toilets will be?
  • Do you wake twice or more during the night to go to the toilet?
  • Do you experience bowel problems such as soiling, urgency, poor wind control or difficulty emptying?
  • Have you given up enjoyable activities like walking, aerobics or dancing, all because of the fear of bladder leakage or loss of bowel control?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then your symptoms are treatable! It is important to note that addressing these symptoms early means that you can get back to what you love to do sooner, plus it will stop these women’s incontinence symptoms from getting worse.

Contact Proactive Physiotherapy today and organise your confidential appointment with one of our physiotherapists to get you back to doing the things you love.

COVID 19 & Telehealth Notice

At Proactive Physiotherapy we recognise that people still injure themselves, and are in pain, so we are still open for face-to-face consultations for the time being, In the interests of everybody's health we are trying to minimise these face to face treatments, so if your condition can be helped without face to face treatment we will offer you telehealth or phone consults.

For your safety, we have reduced physiotherapists hours to allow us to have only two physiotherapists and one receptionist in the clinic at any one time. We use screening questionnaires for everyone attending the clinic and have strict sanitising procedures in place.

For anyone that doesn't want to come into the clinic, our telehealth service, “Physio By Video” is up and running. Anybody who is interested in this service should contact us by email: physio@proactivephysio.com.au, or by phone on 40536222 and a physiotherapist can discuss how this works.

Reception will be attended between 830am and 5pm and Monday to Thursday and 830am to midday on Friday, or you can leave us a voice message at other times.

Thank you for your understanding. We wish you all safety and good health in the coming days and weeks.

Julie Faulks and the entire Proactive Physio team.
