Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine, and is an issue that affects about 1 in 3 women today.

We all know how rough we can feel after having just a single night of bad sleep. It’s harder to stay focused, easier to get annoyed, and even the simplest of actions can seem like a huge chore. If we sleep poorly for a longer period of time, say a whole week, then these symptoms just get worse and worse. But poor sleep can do a lot more to us than making us tired or cranky. In fact, sleeping patterns can be directly linked to our mental and physical health in many different ways.

In this blog, we will examine the causes of premature ejaculation, as well as the treatment options available.
Urinary incontinence is the loss of control over your bladder. It can range from leaking small amounts of urine when laughing or sneezing, to a sudden, overwhelming need to urinate that can result in accidents. In this blog, we’re going to look at some of the risks and symptoms of urinary incontinence, and tips to prevent it.
Physiotherapy is one of the best and most effective treatments for urinary incontinence. Not only is it a low-risk solution, but a good physiotherapist can help you retrain your bladder and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles to help resolve the problem.
