Incontinence

What Is Incontinence?

Incontinence is a loss of ability to control the release of urine or fecal matter. In men, incontinence may indicate problems with the prostrate. In women, it is generally not a serious health problem. Types of incontinence include stress incontinence, urge incontinence, mixed incontinence, and fecal incontinence.

What Kind Of Symptoms May I Feel?

  • Loss of urine when lifting, laughing, or coughing.
  • Frequent, intense, and sudden urges to urinate.
  • Loss of urine while sleeping.

 

How Can Inspirit Help Me?

Physical therapy can help you with urinary incontinence.  After a comprehensive physical therapy evaluation, it may be determined that weak or incoordinated pelvic floor muscles or trunk (core) muscles are contributing to the problem.  Other musculoskeletal issues such as trigger points, myofascial tightness, malalignment of pelvic, sacroiliac, spine, and/or hip joints may be a causative or perpetuating factor. Diet and behavior can also affect incontinence.  Studies have shown that pelvic floor muscle exercises help with urinary incontinence.  Using real-time ultrasound and biofeedback enables the patient to understand the function of pelvic and low back muscles in bladder health. At Inspirit we will implement an individualized treatment program to address any issues found during the evaluation.
