BLADDER LEAK TREATMENT
Although urinary incontinence is extremely common among women – with as many as 1 in 3 women experiencing bladder leakage when they laugh, sneeze, or exercise. However, men can also suffer from embarrassing urine leaks.
One of the main causes of urinary incontinence is weakened pelvic floor muscles, which support the internal organs and prevent urine from leaking. Pelvic floor muscles that are too tight can spasm, contribute to this condition as well as causing pain in the vaginal, rectal or pelvic region.
Our specialized pelvic floor physical therapists can help determine what is contributing to your bladder leakage, and put in place an individualized treatment plan to help you regain bladder control and assist you in returning to a leak-free life. Physical therapy can help both men and women avoid surgery, and educate them in ways to avoid future bladder leak issues.
Types of urinary incontinence include:
• Stress incontinence: Leaking small amounts of urine when coughing, laughing, or exercising.
• Urge incontinence: Leaking larger amounts of urine, with an abrupt and strong desire to urinate.
• Mixed incontinence: A medical condition where both stress and urge urinary incontinence exist.
The good news is that pelvic floor physical therapy can rehabilitate abdominal and pelvic floor muscle tone, motor control and coordination – restoring bladder control and eliminating urine leaks. Our pelvic floor physical therapists have advanced, specialized training in the treatment of urinary incontinence. We offer one-to-one care, with individualized treatment programs in a discreet, professional & supportive environment.
