Women's Urinary Incontinence Therapy
Women are twice as likely as men to experience urinary incontinence and bladder control conditions. Pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and the structure of the female urinary tract make women more susceptible to developing urinary symptoms that impair the quality of their daily lives.
Overactive bladder and urinary incontinence can affect daily routines, social and physical activities, sexuality and self-esteem. We provide a wide range of treatments for incontinence, including physical therapy treatments.
A specially trained physical therapist will perform an evaluation and recommend follow-up treatments.
Goals to improve incontinence include:
- Strengthening treatments aimed at properly contracting the pelvic floor, using biofeedback, when necessary
- Delaying the urge to urinate using bladder training
- Implementing a home exercise program to improve muscle strength to support the bladder and keep the urethra closed during physical activity
