Incontinence

Millions of people suffer from bladder/bowel control problems, yet it is, understandably, still a very sensitive subject. Women suffer from this condition more often than men, as a result of childbirth, menopause and female urinary structure. However many men also suffer from these issues as a result of prostate dysfunctions, surgical procedures, or male urinary structure.  Too many men and women wait years before seeking medical treatment due to embarrassment. Yet incontinence is treatable and often curable, without either surgery or drugs.

You can make sure you get physical therapy that improves your condition, along with understanding, empathy and personalized care by working with the staff at Physical Therapy for Women. We are highly experienced in treating stress, urge and mixed types of urinary incontinence, as well as fecal incontinence.

Some conservative, nonsurgical treatment options include:

  • Appropriate exercise, muscle awareness, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, biofeedback, manual therapy and bladder/bowel retraining can reduce the incidence of incontinence.
  • We also offer one-on-one counseling, education and guidance with these therapies to help you get back to an active lifestyle as quickly as possible.

Here at Physical Therapy for Women, we treat you with compassion, respect and an uncompromising level of personalized medical care. If you have any questions, please call.
