Show Notes

It's the tenth episode of The Better Ageing Podcast! This episode we discuss continence and in particular urinary incontinence, and a common physio complaint, Tennis Elbow.

Jane breaks down urinary incontinence and tells us that it can be both managed and continence can be restored, and highlights the importance of talking to someone about this condition which can sometimes be ignored due to embarrassment. Jason then explores the frustrating condition of tennis elbow and provides easy to follow advice for both rehabilitation and prevention.
