Let's talk about bladder control!
Updated: Feb 18, 2020
Let's face it, this is a topic that most of us would choose to avoid talking about, but it is a very real problem for a lot of people out there, no matter what their age or lifestyle. This is an issue that can negatively impact women and men on a daily basis and can seriously affect their quality of life. You don't have to suffer alone, let us help!
It seems there are more and more products available to help manage minor (or not so minor) urinary leaking, ranging from medications to special garments. While this can be a temporary stop-gap measure, Physical Therapy can be a helpful component to solving the problem. Our very own Tracy Horne, PT has been helping patients improve their bladder control for 20 years. She knows that bladder control issues can be an intricate problem and will evaluate the strength of the hip and pelvic musculature. Weaknesses can be addressed through a therapeutic exercise home program and biofeedback training. Tracy can also assess bladder habits and utilize behavioral modification techniques to retrain the bladder. There are even dietary influences on bladder control that Tracy can discuss with you!
