Urinary incontinence is caused by a lack of control over the urinary sphincter.
You may experience this lack of control for various reasons; however, most cases of urinary incontinence in otherwise healthy adults arise from muscle or nerve damage in the pelvic region or weak pelvic floor muscles.
Unfortunately, urinary incontinence is usually treated incorrectly!
Many medical providers don’t address the weakness of the pelvic floor muscles which is the underlying cause of incontinence.
Pelvic floor physical therapy is the best treatment for most cases of urinary incontinence because it fixes the cause rather than just the symptoms.
Pelvic floor physical therapists will find that loose or weak muscles are responsible for urinary incontinence; however, they may run further testing to verify that the incontinence is not due to more serious issues such as an infection.
Our urinary incontinence treatments include:
- Pelvic floor strengthening exercises
