Many clients are affected by continence issues that may hold them back in their rehabilitation. An awareness of bladder, bowel and pelvic floor issues will alert therapists to identify potential risks within their clients. This module will introduce continence issues and how to manage them in an exercise environment. Members will learn to recognise groups at risk of incontinence, and how to proceed with and progress rehabilitation and exercise prescription without doing further damage.
The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 7 December 2016.
