Urinary incontinence has a reputation of being something that only little old ladies have. However, many young people experience urinary incontinence, as well. More women are affected by urinary incontinence than men; however, it is common for men to experience it after certain procedures, such as prostate surgery. Fortunately, there are many treatments for urinary incontinence. There are two main types of incontinence: stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Stress incontinence is caused when one experiences a urine leak due to pressure on the bladder. For example, stress incontinence can occur when exercising, lifting heavy objects, laughing, coughing, or sneezing. This is the most common type of bladder control problem in younger to middle-aged women, and it may occur around the time of menopause. Urge incontinence is caused when there is a sudden and emergent need to urinate. Someone experiencing urge incontinence may not have enough time to make it to the toilet before leakage occurs.

Some people with urinary incontinence may find relief by making simple lifestyle changes. If you have stress incontinence, in which you leak urine when you cough, sneeze, or laugh, your physical therapist may advise you to alter your hydration habits to limit howmuch you drink. If you have urge incontinence, in which you get a sudden urge to urinate and can’t always make it to the bathroom in time, your physical therapist may advise you to avoid spicy foods, caffeine, and carbonated drinks, as they can irritate the bladder and worsen the issue. Exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, known as Kegels, can sometimes help people who are living with incontinence. Kegels are combined with biofeedback techniques, in order to determine if the exercises are being performed properly. For urge incontinence, bladder retraining can also help. This involves gradually increasing the interval time between trips to the bathroom, working up to longer and longer intervals between bathroom stops. Some other common treatments for incontinence may include, but are not limited to:

I now have confidence to step up and down curbs and steps! “Fyzical Therapy has allowedme to enjoy more independence!! Having a stroke left me wheelchair bound and requiring constant help from my wife or so I originally thought. Since coming to Fyzical Ellenton I have progressed from a wheelchair, to walking with a cane and I continue further re-establish more independence with each visit. I now have confidence to step up and down curbs and steps and walk alone! Krysti and Sheree have motivated me and pushed me to become more independent.
