The 5 Things

The 5 Things

Terry Wesselink is our Continence and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist – she adds to our Blogging repertoire:

As a physiotherapist working in pelvic floor health, I am often surprised by how little my patients know about incontinence. Often my patients think I will be shocked by their problem, or that they are simply wasting my time. I often hear phrases like: “I’ve never told anyone but..” ; “My mum says it runs in the family and I just need to get used to it.” ; “I’m too young to have this problem..” ; “Men don’t leak.”

Life is full of Transitions

A few weeks ago my youngest child officially transitioned from childhood – to teenager. Being a December baby his birthday marks the closing of the school year, the beginning of summer holidays and the end of the calendar year.
