Netballers: switching on the pelvic floor

Elite netballer, Sharelle McMahon remembers the day well. She was at a training session with the ANZ Championship team, the Melbourne Vixens when a physiotherapist used an external ultrasound to track how well the players were switching on their pelvic floor. “Only one of us in that group was actually activating our pelvic floor correctly, and that one wasn’t me,” said Sharelle.

It's happening in Hobart

The Continence Foundation of Australia is featuring the latest in research and practice at the 27th annual National Conference on Incontinence. This year, it will also feature a forum for people living with bladder and bowel issues, their carers, family and friends.
