Curing Incontinence ...

A world-wide best seller
by Dr Pauline Chiarelli

One in three women
who ever had a baby
wet themselves . . .

But the good news is -
Incontinence can be cured.

“Womens Waterworks – Curing Incontinence” is the book I wrote to help my patients to overcome this most embarrassing of life’s problems.

A third of all women suffer bladder control problems and around half of all women in nursing homes are there primarily because their incontinence is unmanageable at home.

The good news is, incontinence can be cured or greatly reduced at any age! By following a simple pelvic floor exercise program, otherwise known as kegel exercises, you can regain control and never again suffer its embarrassment.

Here's how others have reviewed
the Women's Water Works book ...



"This small, 64 page book subtitled 'Curing incontinence' takes a light hearted approach to the serious subject, of urinary incontinence for women


Dr Pauline Chiarelli currently a Senior Lecturer in Physiotherapy at Newcastle University, drawing on her previous clinical experience, uses simple language and diagrams to take the reader through basic anatomy and physiology of the pelvic floor, causes of pelvic floor dysfunction, tests available and two chapters on regaining control of the urinary symptoms associated with weak or damaged pelvic floor muscles.


A brief summary which highlights the main points is included at the end of each chapter.


Some of the statistics in this book are frightening for women in Australia who do not have detailed knowledge of their pelvic floor, and do not use their body on a daily basis in a manner which physiologically works this group of muscles. According to Dr Chiarelli, 36% of women over 45 will suffer incontinence.


Written for woman of all ages, the self help guide on regaining control of the pelvic floor muscle group is easy to read, has simple clear instructions and reinforces the fact, that like any muscle which is damaged, the pelvic floor group will take time to repair or regain strength. Resources for women who require further assistance or guidance from a health professional are provided at the back of the book.


This book should be essential reading for every pregnant or menopausal women, who then needs to share the information with her mother, grandmother, girlfriends and neighbours

What causes Urinary Incontinence?

In her book, Womens Waterworks, Dr.Pauline Chiarelli identifies the three most common types of incontinence:


1) Stress Incontinence, 2) Urgency 3) Frequency


“Stress incontinence is leaks which happen when they cough, sneeze, swing at a golf ball, or lunge at tennis. Urgency is the really strong need to pass urine which, if ignored, most women feel would cause them to wet their pants. Frequency applies to the need to empty the bladder often, with only a short time between visits to the toilet.”


These three forms of incontinence can all be linked to the problem of having a weak pelvic floor. When healthy, the pelvic floor serves as a gatekeeper to the passage of urine.

It also controls the amount that your bladder empties. Media Link>>


I used a little book by Pauline Chiarelli "Womens Waterworks, Curing Incontinence". This is a brilliant book for physio and patient alike. Physio Forum Link>>
