Women’s Health & Urinary Incontinence Integrative Approach Model at PhysioMotion
In this video, PhysioMotion’s Founder Panda Li gives some insight into her team’s approach in addressing Women’s Health (and Men’s Health) issues such as urinary incontinence. She describes how using an individualised scientific based integrative approach looking at all aspects of health from musculoskeletal problems, localised pelvic floor deficiencies, hormonal health, exercise and nutrition all have a role in effective management of urinary incontinence in both women’s and men’s health.
She explains how PhysioMotion’s team uses a defined objective clinical pathway to ascertain how different regions of the body are interconnected and differentiates between what parts of the body cause urinary incontinence. In this example, she demonstrates that a rectus diastasis, pelvic floor dysfunction, sacro-iliac joint and hip joint are key areas of focus for this example for effective management of incontinence. She also highlights that back pain is both a contributor, but also a cause of the incontinence.
She quantifies where treatment needs to be focused and how each area links to each other. She further explains that to dig deeper into the root causes of the urinary incontinence, treatment will need to include looking into hormonal health, nutrition and exercise routines.
