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
- 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.
