Elaine Miller, physiotherapist, comedian and recovered incontinent is bringing her show, “Gusset Grippers” from the international speakers circuit to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
A shocking 1 in 3 women and 1 in 9 men wet themselves. Leaking is common, but never normal, and most cases of stress incontinence can be cured.
“There is a perception that it’s an inevitable consequence of ageing or parenthood, but that’s not true.” Elaine challenges this assumption.
The aim of “Gusset Grippers” is to break down the taboos which surround incontinence and sexual dysfunctions to encourage people to ask for help.
The show is free and is evidence based and entertaining – “the audience leaves the show knowing what a pelvic floor is, what it does, why having a good one is smashing, and where to take theirs if it
The show counts as Continuing Professional Development for Healthcare Professionals, GPs, midwives, nurses, physiotherapists, urologists, gynaecologists, speech therapists, health visitors and fitness professionals.
Packs with references, reflective questions and a CPD certificate are provided.
