Do You Struggle with Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a common problem for many women.   The severity of incontinence can range from small leaks with jumping, running, coughing, or sneezing up to large leaks and an inability to make it to the bathroom in time.    The underlying problem is often weakness in the pelvic floor muscles, which support the pelvic organs, including the bladder.  Women’s health physical therapy specifically addresses the pelvic floor muscles and can help with alleviating incontinence.

What does the first visit involve?  At the initial evaluation the therapist will discuss with you the changes your body has undergone and a treatment plan will be established that includes goals to help you gain bladder control.  Your posture, muscle strength and tension, and flexibility will be evaluated.

Treatment may include:

  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Pelvic floor strengthening
  • Education about how to manage and improve your symptoms
  • Soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, and scar massage
  • Home exercise instruction

Don’t let incontinence control your life or keep you from activities you enjoy. Talk with your Doctor to see if physical therapy can help and call HealthPoint Rehab at 573-986-4411 to set up your appointment.
