Urinary incontinence is a vastly under recognised and under reported problem throughout society and can be simply and cost effectively treated. Appropriate management with physiotherapy can help to reduce the burden of healthcare costs and improve the quality of life of these patients.
Management of incontinence includes behavioural modification, bladder training, pelvic floor training, pessaries, medication and surgery. Physiotherapists provide conservative management by focusing on pelvic floor muscle training, biofeedback, behaviour modification and bladder training. This is a basic course which will introduce the physiotherapist to the options available in the management of patients presenting with urinary incontinence so that more women who are suffering with this condition can be helped.
