Continence & Women's Health

Incontinence affects about 1 in 4 Australians of all ages and from all walks of life (Continence Foundation of Australia).

 

60-70% of people affected by incontinence can be better managed or cured, however 70% of people affected by incontinence do not seek treatment. Incontinence, although common, should not be considered a normal part of ageing & any bladder problem, big or small, warrants attention to help get the problem under control.

 

Jessica Forbes – Physiotherapist & Clinical Pilates Instructor - has a special interest in pregnancy, incontinence and women’s/men’s health. Jessica is a qualified APA Level One Pelvic Floor practitioner and has done further study in Overactive Pelvic Floor and Pelvic Pain and Exercise in the Childbearing year.

 

Signs of a weak Pelvic Floor include

  • leaking urine when you cough, sneeze, walk, run or play sport;

  • Pre & Post-natal women;
