Stress Incontinence - no need to suffer



Treatment with Osteopathy

We know that having a baby is an incredible journey, but it can come with some unexpected challenges, like stress incontinence. This is a pretty common issue, especially after childbirth, but the good news is that our team of skilled osteopaths in Brixton is here to help you get back to feeling like your fabulous self. Whether you're in Herne Hill, Camberwell, Streatham, or anywhere in between, our clinic is your go-to spot for expert care and support.

What is stress incontinence?

So, what exactly is stress incontinence? Well, it’s that annoying leakage that can happen when you cough, laugh, sneeze, or even when you’re just going about your day. It's usually caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles, which can happen after pregnancy and childbirth. But don’t worry, because osteopathy has some amazing techniques to help strengthen those muscles and get you back in control.

When you come to our Brixton clinic, the first thing we’ll do is have a friendly chat about your symptoms and experiences. We’re all about making you feel comfortable and understood. Our osteopaths will then conduct a thorough assessment, which might include checking your posture, alignment, and the function of your pelvic floor muscles. We’re located conveniently in Brixton, so whether you’re coming from Herne Hill, Camberwell, or Streatham, we’re easy to reach and ready to help.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

One of the main techniques we use to treat stress incontinence is pelvic floor therapy. This involves exercises specifically designed to strengthen the muscles that support your bladder. We’ll guide you through these exercises, making sure you’re doing them correctly and effectively. And hey, these exercises are discreet and can be done anywhere – perfect for busy mums on the go in South London!

In addition to pelvic floor exercises, our osteopaths might use gentle hands-on techniques to improve the function of your pelvic area. This can include soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, and specific osteopathic adjustments. These treatments help to relieve tension, improve circulation, and ensure that your pelvic muscles are working optimally. It’s all about getting your body back in balance and feeling strong.

Convenient and Flexible Appointments

Now, we know that life in London can be hectic, especially when you’re juggling motherhood with everything else. That’s why we aim to make your treatment as convenient and stress-free as possible. Our Brixton clinic offers flexible appointment times, (open late weekdays and weekends) so you can fit your sessions around your busy schedule. And if you’re coming from nearby areas like Herne Hill, Camberwell, or Streatham, we’re just a short trip away.

But osteopathy isn’t just about the physical treatments. We also focus on your overall well-being. Stress incontinence can be a bit of a confidence-knocker, but we’re here to support you emotionally too. Our team is friendly, empathetic, and dedicated to helping you feel empowered. We’ll work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and helps you achieve your goals.

Knowledge is Power

Let’s not forget about the power of education. We’ll provide you with plenty of tips and advice on how to manage stress incontinence in your daily life. From understanding how to engage your pelvic floor muscles to learning about good bladder habits, we’ve got you covered. Knowledge is power, and we want to equip you with everything you need to stay in control.

Community

We also love seeing the sense of community here in South London. We’ve had the pleasure of helping many women from Brixton, Herne Hill, Camberwell, and Streatham, and it’s truly rewarding to see the positive impact osteopathy can have on their lives. Hearing stories of how mums are back to running around with their kids without worrying about leaks is what drives us to keep doing what we do.

Book a Consultation

So, if you’re dealing with stress incontinence and you’re ready to take control, come and see us at our Brixton clinic. We’re here to help you every step of the way with expert osteopathic care, personalised treatment plans, and plenty of support. Remember, you’re not alone in this – we’re a part of your South London community, and we’re dedicated to helping you feel your best.

Whether you’re popping in from Herne Hill, making the short journey from Camberwell, or coming down from Streatham, we’re excited to welcome you. Let’s work together to strengthen those pelvic floor muscles, boost your confidence, and get you back to enjoying all the little moments of motherhood without the worry of stress incontinence. See you soon in Brixton!

Affected at Any Age

Also, it’s not just new mums who can benefit from our osteopathic care. Stress incontinence can affect older adults too, and we’re here to help you regain control and confidence. As we age, the muscles and tissues that support our bladder can weaken, leading to those unwelcome leaks when you laugh, cough, or even lift something. 

At our Brixton clinic, we understand the unique challenges that come with ageing, and we offer tailored treatments to strengthen your pelvic floor, improve your overall musculoskeletal health, and enhance your quality of life. Whether you’re from Herne Hill, Camberwell, Streatham, or anywhere in South London, we’re dedicated to providing compassionate, effective care for all stages of life. So, if you’re an older adult experiencing stress incontinence, come and see us – we’re here to support you with personalised treatments and plenty of encouragement.


There you have it, we’re all about supporting our amazing community of mums in South London, whether new mums or those with grown children, and we’re looking forward to helping you feel your best!
