Bladder Dysfunction

What is Bladder Dysfunction?

Bladder dysfunction refers to a range of issues that affect the normal functioning of the bladder. This can include problems with storage, emptying, or both. It may result in various symptoms that impact an individual’s urinary habits and overall quality of life.

What are the Symptoms?

The symptoms of bladder dysfunction can vary but often include:

  • Frequent Urination: The need to urinate more often than usual.
  • Urgency: A sudden and compelling need to urinate.
  • Incontinence: Inability to control urine flow, leading to leaks.
  • Painful Urination: Discomfort or pain during urination.
  • Incomplete Emptying: Feeling like the bladder hasn’t emptied completely.
  • Nocturia: Waking up at night to urinate.

How Can Physiotherapy Help?

Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in managing bladder dysfunction by:

  • Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation: Targeting specific exercises to strengthen pelvic floor muscles.
  • Education: Providing information on bladder health, fluid management, and lifestyle changes.
  • Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques to address muscle tension and promote relaxation.
  • Biofeedback and Electrical Stimulation: Using technology to help individuals gain better control over pelvic muscles.
  • Tailored Exercise Programs: Designing personalised routines to address individual needs and symptoms.

Physiotherapy offers a holistic and non-invasive approach to improving bladder function, enhancing overall pelvic health, and contributing to a better quality of life. Always consult with a healthcare professional for a comprehensive evaluation and personalised treatment plan.
