What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary Incontinence (UI) is an involuntary loss of urine. Risk factors like age, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause can increase chances of urinary incontinence. Urinary Incontinence affects 25% of young women, 50% of middle age women and 75% of older women.
What are the types of Urinary Incontinence?
The main types of Urinary Incontinence are:
Stress incontinence – is the most common type of incontinence. It is the leakage of urine when sudden pressure or “stress,” (such as coughing, laughing, sneezing, running and jumping) is exerted on the bladder.
Urge incontinence – is an urgent need to urinate and the inability to control it in time to get to the toilet. In some cases, cold weather or even the sound of running water can trigger an urge to urinate.
Mixed incontinence – is involuntary loss of urine from both stressors and urges. About one third of women who have stress incontinence also have urge incontinence.
How Can Physical Therapy Help?
Our highly-skilled pelvic floor specialists will perform a detailed assessment of your core, hip and pelvis regions. Following treatment methods may be used:
Bladder retraining – based on your bladder’s habit our Physical Therapist may suggest bladder retraining cues to gain more control.
Strength training for deep core, hip and Pelvic floor muscles.
Neuro-muscular reeducation to establish lost coordination between core and Pelvic floor muscles.
Postural correction – slouch posture can create pressure on bladder and put pelvic floor muscles at a mechanical disadvantage to control leakage.
Electrical stimulation to help very weak Pelvic floor muscles to activate.
