If you take people without back pain and put them through a CT scan or MRI, you get some
|37% of 20 year olds||30% of 20 year olds|
|80% of 50 year olds||60% of 50 year olds|
|96% of 80 year olds||84% of 80 year olds|
|Have "disc degeneration"||Have "disc bulging"|
It turns out that some of these changes are just normal part of the ageing process. If your MRI says something scary, don't be afraid. Herniated discs, facet joint osteoarthritis and other signs of degeneration sound scary but in fact they are very normal! These findings compare with grey hair or getting bald and are not always pain producing structures. If you are not sure of the language used in a scan talk to the physiotherapists at Newcastle Integrated Physiotherapy for advice.

Statistics show that 70% of people with urinary incontinence do not seek advice or treatment for their problem (Millard, 1998). Below are some facts on incontinence, and what you can do if you're experiencing symptoms.
The term 'Incontinence' refers to "accidental or involuntary loss of urine from the bladder, or faeces or wind from the bowel" (Continence Foundation of Australia).Incontinence can vary in degree of severity, from a very small leak, to complete loss of bladder or bowel control.
Up to 13% of Australian men and 37% of Australian women (i.e. 1 in 3) experience urinary incontinence.
There are many different types of incontinence, with the most common ones listed below:* Stress incontinence
* Urge incontinence* Mixed incontinence
Gluteal muscle strengthening exercises are also recommended, because they help PFMs to work at optimal length, and help support the pelvis and sacrum (Continence Foundation of Australia).Studies have shown that 84% of women with stress urinary incontinence are cured with PFM training after five physiotherapy sessions (Neumann PB et al., 2005).
Research shows up to 50% of women who attempt Kegel Exercises from a handout get the technique wrong, which can worsen the problem (Bump et al., 1991).Potential implications may include long-term problems such as further weakening of PFMs, continued incontinence, prolapsed or pelvic instability (Continence Foundation of Australia).
