Bladder Dysfunction

Don’t despair if a bladder problem prevents you from enjoying physical activities to the full.

Village physiotherapist Jane Jackson is a specialist in the area of urinary dysfunction.

Many women have some form of bladder weakness, but don’t seek help for this problem.

  • It may be that you have recently had a baby and you have developed incontinence issues.
  • Or you are experiencing leaking when you are coughing, sneezing or exercising.
  • Or are you visiting the toilet more frequently or struggling to get there in time?

To discuss any problems you are having please contact me for a private and confidential informal chat. I will contact you at a time convenient for you.

If you’ve recently had surgery for a prolapse physiotherapy can help strengthen the pelvic floor.

I feel strongly that women should not suffer in silence. I am an experienced physiotherapist with a special interest in urinary dysfunction in women. Physiotherapy can help in the treatment of bladder weakness, incontinence and prolapse. I know that many women are embarrassed to talk about symptoms they may be experiencing. I offer a private and confidential service and am sensitive to your feelings.
