Alison Toh (Marketing Manager )The relief that I got when I finally talked about my condition with Gail is incredible. She reassured me that I am not alone and removes the debilitating stigma so many women suffer with. My incontinence was treated without drugs nor surgery, but through exercises that improved the strength of my pelvic floor muscles. PhysioActive brought a change that dramatically improved my quality of life!
Incontinence is a personal and sensitive problem. It can have a major impact on your quality of life and cause you to avoid social situations, leading to a less active lifestyle.
Often, incontinence results from weakening of the pelvic muscles. Patients lose voluntary control over their bowels and bladder. This may happen from surgery, due to aging, or from a number of other causes.
