Urinary continence relies on finely coordinated interaction of the smooth muscle tissue of the urethra and bladder, skeletal muscles, and the voluntary and autonomic nervous system. Of the several types of urinary incontinence, stress, urge, and mixed incontinence account for more that 90% of cases.
Temporary incontinence may be caused by several conditions including childbirth, medication side effects and urinary tract infection. Chronic incontinence may be a symptom of bladder weakness, nerve disorders, or pelvic floor muscle weakness.
An individual treatment plan is devised based on the subjective and objective evaluation. This plan may include:
- Pelvic Floor Muscle Re-Education
- Muscle Stimulationn
- Manual Therapy
- Therapeutic Exercises
- Patient Education
