Physiotherapist and Continence Advisor Dr Pauline Chiarelli has collated her knowledge of the female body to give her patients honest, scientific advice to help them overcome the embarrassing, but all too common, problem of incontinence. Nobody wants to wear embarrassing and bulky adult diapers and they shouldn't have too, Dr Chiarelli insists that incontinence can be cured or greatly reduced at any age, and this book shows you how.
Incontinence occurs when the pelvic floor is too weak to support and control it. Pregnancy and childbirth puts a large amount of pressure on the pelvic floor muscles and many women find that after having a baby they experience leaks. This problem is often exacerbated during the menopause, when hormonal changes cause muscles and sinews to weaken.
Since it is so common to experience mild incontinence during later life, many women ignore the problem and simply control it with pantyliners or padded underwear. However, you can easily get your pelvic floor back in shape with simple exercises.
With clear, easy to follow diagrams Women’s Waterworks explains exactly how the pelvic floor works and what role it plays in your body. The book describes why the pelvic floor becomes weak and guides you through exercises and techniques to help you strengthen up.
Dr Chiarelli writes in a clear, informal style and without any hard to follow jargon, which makes this book accessible to all. It is used in clinics across the world and recommended by physiotherapists to their patients. To date more than 350,000 copies have been sold worldwide, making this one of the most popular and valuable books within the pelvic health industry.
