Contact: Continence Foundation of Australia 1800 33 00 66 Find a pelvic floor physiotherapist Better Bladder Control Guidelines to managing and treating pelvic dysfunction. General Guidelines Pelvic dysfunction can be managed, treated and often cured! 1Strengthen your pelvic floor Use our recommended materials to show you how. • Build strength, control and support in pelvic floor muscles • Improve bladder and bowel control and prolapse support • Prepare for recovery from pregnancy • Improve sexual sensation 2Don’t get caught unprepared How long will you be out? Take odour neutralising products, creams and a change of clothes as precaution? Know where the closest toilets are. Check fluid intake? 3Use pelvic floor strengtheners Pelvic floor muscles (especially the sphincter) weaken for many reasons. As they weaken, the problem gets worse. Some sufferers struggle to feel their pelvic floor muscles. Up to 80% of sufferers are helped by combining their daily exercises with the use of vaginal weights to further strengthen, tone and support the pelvic floor. 4Treat constipation and urinary infection Avoid further stretching and straining of the pelvic floor by managing constipation and urinary infections. Burning? Pain? Difficulty or frequent urination? Visit your GP for diagnosis and treatment. 5 Increase fibre intake Have more fibre, mainly from daily doses of fruit, vegetables, legumes, seeds, nuts. If adding fibre, do so gradually and simultaneously increase water consumption to avoid blockage! 6Achieve a healthy weight Extra weight puts further strain on the pelvic floor, often worsening the condition. The pharmacy can assist with a tailored weight loss program. Lifestyle Remedies 1 Manage fluid intake. Drink slowly and only when thirsty. No more than 2 litres daily. Drink water, rather than alcohol, caffeine or fizzy drinks. 2 Eat a healthy diet with more fibre. Eat more fibre (2 servings fruit, 5 servings vegetables, 5 servings bread and cereals + more legumes, seeds, nuts) to add bulk to stools. 3 Achieve Healthy Weight. Extra weight puts further strain on the pelvic floor, often worsening the condition. The pharmacy can assist with a tailored weight loss program. 4 Stop Smoking. Chronic (long-term) coughing associated with smoking can weaken the muscles of your pelvic floor and lead to bladder and bowel control problems. 5 Practice good toilet habits. Only go to the toilet when you need to. When sitting on the toilet fully relax pelvic floor and sphincter muscles (don’t hold breath or strain). Walk, don’t run to the toilet. Breathe normally.Stretching the pelvic floor will weaken it. Treat all infections immediately. Understand   the symptoms We have a range of products to help protect, soothe, sanitise and make people feel more comfortable. Visit the ‘Better Bladder Control’ section. There are several different types of incontinence: Stress Incontinence is the loss of urine when pressure is exerted on the bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy. This could result from pregnancy, childbirth, menopause or removal of the prostate gland.The pharmacy can assist with the treatment and management of Stress Incontinence. Other types of incontinence can be managed and treated surgically. Urgency Incontinence presents a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by involuntary loss of urine with only a few seconds warning. May result in over-frequent urination. See your doctor to determine cause and solutions. Overflow Incontinence – Frequently or constantly dribble urine. May be result of inability to fully empty bladder or produce only a weak stream of urine. See your doctor to determine cause and solutions. Functional or Total Incontinence – often in older people who forget or can’t get to a toilet on time. Some exercises, pilates and yoga make incontinence worse. Find out what you can and can't do from a specialist. Pelvic floor and Women’s Health physiotherapists specialise in the treatment of pelvic floor problems using specific exercises in concert with other treatments. These treatments may include bowel.
