Urinary incontinence is defined as involuntary leakage of urine or loss of bladder control. This problem can significantly impact a person’s ability to do routine activity. It can be the result of a variety of conditions, such as:

  • Pregnancy/vaginal birth
  • Hysterectomy
  • Neurological Diseases
  • Prostate disease/Surgery
  • Sphincter deficiency
  • Bladder/rectal prolapse
  • Chronic constipation

Physical Therapy can play an important role in the treatment of stress and urge incontinence. Often the result of weakness, lack of proper muscle control/coordination, and postural problems, therapy can employ a variety of techniques to manage and even eliminate the problem of incontinence.
