Urinary Incontinence

Women’s Health/Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control, a condition that affects 13 million women in the United States.Stress incontinence, the most common type in women, is when leakage occurs during activities that put pressure on the bladder, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting, or running. These accidents happen when the muscles that contract to hold urine in (known as pelvic floor muscles) are too weak to handle sudden pressure on the bladder during “stressful” activities. Universal Physical Therapy offers female PTs to treat you with wide range of option including Pelvic floor muscle exercises and biofeedback therapy to retrain and strengthen pelvic floor muscles.
