Incontinence is a common issue experienced by both women and men. Often, people fail or wait to seek treatment due to the misconception that it is a normal part of aging, pregnancy, or result of childbirth. However, the symptoms of incontinence are often very treatable without the use of medications or surgeries.
How can physical therapy help?
Physical therapists trained in techniques for pelvic floor can help these patients learn how to appropriately strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, employ healthier habits for bladder function, and learn strategies to get them back to an active lifestyle as quickly as possible. Treatments may include strength and flexibility exercises, neuromuscular re-education, biofeedback, manual therapies, and bladder education.
