Back pain is one of the most common medical problems, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. It can range from a constant ache to a sudden sharp pain. Back pain is considered ‘chronic’ if it persists for longer than about three months. In most cases, the cause of back pain is unknown, however there has long been a wildly held belief that that hysterectomy causes back pain.
A number of alternative treatments are suggested to cope with urinary incontinence such as bladder control training, using pelvic floor muscles (kegel exercises to strengthen the muscles to stop the flow of urine); biofeedback where electrical signals from the vagina or rectum can help you become more aware of your body’s signals; timed voiding and bladder training where you train your body to go to the loo at specific times of the day.
