The results of the 2018 Cochrane Systematic Review investigating the efficacy of Pelvic Floor Muscle Training (PFMT) for women with urinary incontinence found that women who complete PFMT programs:
Are more likely to report cure of urinary incontinence,
Report significant improvement in urinary incontinence symptoms,
Experience reduced leakage episodes and reduced volume of urine loss, and
Report significant improvement in quality of life
How are the sessions run?
Before commencing the sessions, you will be asked to complete some questionnaires. The information from these will be used again over the course of the program to measure your progress.
An initial pelvic floor consultation with Eleanor is essential before joining the BEST sessions. Using the information taken from this assessment, she can determine your suitability to join the group. If you are a previous patient of Eleanor’s, she will already have your assessment information on hand and a second assessment is not necessary.
Group PFMT sessions which occur once a week to improve voluntary recruitment of the muscles of continence and to increase the strength and muscle bulk of the muscular support system in the pelvis
You can enrol at any time.
Sessions currently running on Tuesdays at 6pm. Due to the popularity of this program, a second weekly session will be starting on Thursday mornings at 9:15am from April 16th, 2020.
