Tips for Improving Urge Incontinence | Bladder Health

Urinary urgency or urge incontinence happens when the bladder contracts when it is not supposed to and may result in subsequent leakage of urine. This can occur for different reasons. However, it can commonly be due to either overactive or under active pelvic floor muscles. Due to the connection with the pelvic floor muscles, Physical Therapists specializing in Pelvic Floor Dysfunction can help. They can use bladder retraining which is a technique to improve urinary urge incontinence by trying to improve bladder and pelvic floor function. It is best to be evaluated first by a medical professional to find out which category you fall in, as well as to rule out other possible causes.
