One in three women in the UK suffers from bladder weakness, making it more common than hay fever. At various times in a woman’s life, – such as pregnancy, childbirth and the menopause – the stress placed on the pelvic floor can weaken the muscles. Over time this will cause urine to leak.
The activities we love doing, particularly exercise, can trigger the happy hormones that keep us enjoying life. But barriers like bladder weakness can have a damaging effect on our self-esteem and dignity.
Studies show that 56 percent of women avoid social events due to incontinence. Whilst 37 percent of women feel they can’t be spontaneous.
Dr Ruth Maher, INNOVO co-inventor, physiotherapist and pelvic floor expert, agrees, adding that “It’s incredibly sad that so many people in the UK are suffering from urinary incontinence and letting it impact their quality of life.”
What Can We Do About it?
The most common type of bladder weakness is stress urinary incontinence, caused by a weakened pelvic floor. Accidental leakage can occur as a result of everyday activities, such as coughing, sneezing or laughing. There’s no need to fear, these muscles can be strengthened and restored. We don’t need to ‘accept our lot’ and suffer embarrassing leaks no more.
