Overactive Bladder
Clinical
overactive bladder conservative management physiotherapy
All health professionals who are interested in conservative management of overactive bladder.

Developing a clear rationale for treatment choices in first-line management of overactive bladder can be difficult because causes of urgency remain poorly understood. This workshop will present a brief review of recent literature examining the causes and nature of urgency, challenging traditional views and rationale underpinning treatments such as fluid management and pelvic floor exercises. Brief practical ‘snap-shots’ will be offered for mindfulness, per/transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation and connective tissue massage. Participants will be encouraged to consider established treatment choices with fresh eyes and to critically explore new options with emerging evidence as additions to their overactive bladder tool kits.
