Offering a range of treatment options, Conquering Incontinence: A new and physical approach to a freer lifestyle, is a guide, helping people to overcome or significantly improve their problem. Especially relevant for the 2,000,000 people in Australia alone who suffer from incontinence in adulthood.

Urinary incontinence has been described as the most widespread yet least known and understood affliction in society today. This problem can seriously impact on your lifestyle, professional career, emotional wellbeing, exercise activity and your sex life. In Conquering Incontinence Peter Dornan gets behind the stigma and misunderstandings to help you to overcome or further improve your problem.

There are a range of different treatment options currently available. Standard pelvic floor exercises are usually prescribed but Peter Dornan has added to that and developed, through first-hand experience and research, an innovative and physical program that helped him conquer his own urinary incontinence. Conquering Incontinence describes a new and physical technique that promotes increased circulation, enhances neuromuscular reflex activity of the urinary system and improves muscular control of the abdominal and pelvic regions to help you actively combat urinary incontinence. Follow the program of simple physical exercises and build up to a more vigorous routine as your strength increases.

If you or someone you know suffers from urinary incontinence, Conquering Incontinence, written by an experienced physiotherapist who has been there, done that', will be an invaluable resource. Primarily a self-help guide for men and women suffering from urinary incontinence, professionals working in the field will also find this book useful.
