The physiotherapist will complete a detailed assessment, following which they will work with you with the aim of resolving or reducing your symptoms. This may include:
- Advice on an individualised pelvic floor muscle exercise programme
- Advice on fluid intake (following completion/analysis of a bladder diary)
- Education on daily activities, general exercise, diet, weight loss and smoking cessation
- Referral to the community continence services, for further tests or assessment of containment products, if required
If conservative management fails the physiotherapist may discuss referral to the urological/gynaecological consultant.
