As it is world continence week, we are revisiting a conversation I had with the fab journalist Grace McGettigan of IMAGE.IE. At Vie Physio, we are delighted to see women's health issues highlighted in the media. Items such as bladder leaking, incontinence, prolapse and sex that are often considered embarrassing or taboo despite being so so common(1 in 3 of us leak, 50% of women have prolapse).
This article is FULL of information about types of incontinence and the treatment available. The message from Team Vie for World Continence Week is this
'While incontinence is common, it should not be accepted as normal. There is help, there is treatment and specialist pelvic or women's health physiotherapy can help you sort it'
