The physiotherapist uses models of anatomy to explain the physiology of voiding and bladder control problems. To help reduce stress incontinence, Mrs Scott’s pelvic floor muscles are assessed and found to be lax. Mrs Scott has been performing the exercises prescribed by the NCA, so the physiotherapist checks her technique to ensure she is doing them correctly. Further advice was needed to refine technique. Mrs Scott is aware that she needs to do these exercises at least 5 times per day, every day in order to recondition her pelvic floor.
To further address urge incontinence Mrs Scott will perform timed voiding, as advised by the NCA.
