“How to End Urine Leakage and Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stop Pelvic Pain Without Taking Medications, Without Risking Surgery and Without Having to Wait to See the Doctor!

If you have urinary/ or bowel incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse or pelvic pain - it’s very tempting to think that it’s nothing and that it will go away on its own. Or you pass it off as “being normal”, or that “everyone your age suffers from it...

There’s no obvious reason why it happened - but it doesn’t seem to be changing!

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone - and we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is one of THE most common problems that we see in our physiotherapy clinic in Hamilton, ON.

And when it comes to living with pelvic floor dysfunction, everybody we see wants to know.

“Why is This Happening to Me?”...

or

“Why Am I Still Suffering With Incontinence, Prolapse, or Pelvic Pain After Putting Up With It For Months - Often Years?”

Most people think that when they get urinary incontinence, bowel incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse (the bladder, uterus or rectum is “falling” out) or pelvic pain, it’s just going to go away on its own.

That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened… But then 6 months later you’re still living with leakage, your pelvic organs bulging and painful intercourse or periods - often even worse than it was when it came on.

Does That Sound Like You?

A scenario we see all the time in our physiotherapy clinic is when people go to the Doctors for pelvic pain, and the Doctor tells them to “try these painkillers” and to “see how it goes”.

But this is not the best advice and often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it hasn’t got any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, and advised to keep doing the painful activity so it will get better and to “have a glass of wine” to “relax”. This is madness and explains why so many people are suffering with chronic pelvic pain.

Another scenario we see all the time in our physiotherapy clinic in Hamilton ON is when people go to the Doctor about incontinence or heaviness in their pelvic region and they are told “it is normal” just wear pads, do “kegels” without guidance or offered dangerous surgery (which is often unsuccessful or makes your symptoms worse).

Has This Ever Happened to You?

Why else does pelvic floor dysfunction last longer than it should? Well, it’s easy to get confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. There’s lots of people out there who are happy to dispense advice - but not all of it is credible.

If you don’t know what you’re doing - pelvic floor dysfunction can be very confusing and because of this, many people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ - as if it’s normal, and ‘just the way it is’.

Do You Feel That Way Too?

If You’re Currently Living With Incontinence, Pelvic Organ Prolapse or Pelvic Pain, Here’s 7 More Reasons Why It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

  • You thought it would go away on its own - but it didn’t.
  • You went to the Doctor who told you to relax and take medications - but the pills did nothing to help your symptoms, and as soon as they wore off, the chronic pelvic floor pain came back again.
  • A family member, or friend, told you that everybody leaks urine as they get older, so you just accepted it.
  • You tried other healthcare professionals, or a physiotherapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help.
  • You tried YouTube exercises but they either didn’t do a thing, or made your pelvic pain and leakage worse.
  • You thought it would be a good idea to do more “kegels” but it made no change in your pelvic organ prolapse or increased your incontinence and pelvic floor pain.
  • You decided to try lubricants and “relaxing” with different positions during intercourse hoping that it would fix the painful sex… but it didn’t do anything

If any of these sound familiar to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physiotherapists to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!

The phone call is complementary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best.

What Can I Do to Get Rid of MY Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Quickly?”...

Well, here's 4 things you can do:

  • First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people procrastinate for so long, thinking that the leakage or pelvic pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed… Or it gets worse
  • Next, avoid dehydration by drinking plenty of water - when your tissues lack adequate water replenishment, they become irritated. This leads to increased pain perception, increased urinary frequency and leakage and constipation
  • Then, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you ease your pelvic floor dysfunction is to do the right series of progressed exercises - the right exercises given to you by a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist will help you reduce your pelvic pain to allow intimacy to be enjoyable again, stop your leakage and reduce that heaviness or “falling out” feeling in your pelvis - and make sure that the problems don’t come back anytime soon by getting to the root of what’s causing the problem.
  • Get real, “hands-on” physiotherapy - Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy is proven to help people with urinary and bowel incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and pelvic pain. In fact at Gage Physiotherapy and Foot Clinic it’s one of the most common issues we see. If your leakage, prolapse or pelvic pain is affecting your job, your ability to keep active, if it threatens your independence or gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends - Pelvic Health Physiotherapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.

I broke my wrist and needed physiotherapy to regain mobility. I was a patient of the clinic for a year. Val is great and knows her stuff. She is gentle when needed and always asks if there is any pain with whatever was being done. All the staff are friendly and professional. I would recommend this clinic to anyone who needs physiotherapy sessions. I will likely go back for some of their other services such as massage and orthotics.

I went to Gage Physiotherapy with a very specific concern and Valerie isolated the muscle and worked in the area to release the pain. Both Valerie and Jay are excellent, professional and caring. I recommend them both and will go back with any other concerns.
