Urinary Incontinence

Therapy Options  |  Eligibility  |  Locations

Urinary incontinence (UI) is the involuntary loss of bladder control. While very common, it is not normal. 

The national Association for Continence estimates that up to 13 million women suffer from incontinence (men can also have incontinence).

Therapy Options

There are many physical therapy techniques that can be used to help you get your bladder back under control.

After your evaluation your treatment may include the following:

  • Bladder retraining
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Biofeedback
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Correct lifting and moving techniques
  • Home exercise program

Treatment addresses pelvic floor muscle function and can result in a decrease or stoppage of urinary incontinence.
