Men’s Therapy for Urinary Incontinence

Next Step

For more information on services at Cape Cod Healthcare, call our Access Line at 877-CAPECOD or email us today.

Incontinence Therapy for men is designed to regain and strengthen control over the bladder. Increased frequency of urination – more than seven times a day and once at night – can also be an indicator of incontinence.

Many men, expecially those with a history of prostate issues, may experience the leaking of urine while coughing, laughing or exercising. The goal of physical therapy is to strengthening the pelvic floor muscle to support the bladder and keep the urethra closed during physical activity.

Common causes of incontinence include:

  • Chronic constipation, coughing or sneezing
  • Bladder irritants like caffeine, acidic juices and carbonated beverages
  • Limiting fluid intake, which increases urine concentration and irritation
  • Pelvic floor trauma after some surgeries

A specially trained physical therapist specializing in incontinence will perform an evaluation and follow-up treatments. Many patients require as little as 3-6 visits.

Physical Therapy includes:

  • Strengthening: Instruction to properly contract the pelvic floor, including biofeedback, when necessary.
  • Bladder Training: Techniques to delay the urge to urinate
  • Home exercise program: Designed to improve strength and endurance
