-Pelvic Floor Rehab/Urinary Incontinence

Currently, 13 million Americans-men and women- experience some form of urinary incontinence (UI).  One out of four women suffers from occasional and/or frequent episodes of urinary incontinence, and this number is on the rise.  Many women feel this is a "normal" part of child-bearing and/or aging, when in fact, many cases of UI can be resolved through exericises and/or bladder retraining.

Stress incontinence is the uncontrollable loss of urine with coughing/sneezing or physical activity.  It is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles or failure sphincter muscles to fully close.

Urge incontinence is when you experience a strong urge to urinate and the bladder contracts/empties with out you being able to stop the flow of urine.  This is treated by bladder re-training activites and pelvic floor muscle strengthening.

Physical therapy can assist in determining the type of urinary incontinence you have and developing the best treatment plan for you.
