Women’s Health Services
The Outpatient Rehabilitation Care Center at the Camden Campus and the
Outpatient Rehabilitation Care Center on St. Simons Island offer a women's
health services program to treat urinary incontinence.
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine which occurs when
bladder pressure exceeds urethral pressure. Incontinence is most common
in older women, especially those who have had many children, large babies
or long, complicated deliveries. Urge incontinence (overactive bladder)
is characterized by a sudden strong urge to urinate followed by an inability
to "hold it." Urinary frequency is another common symptom. Stress
incontinence is an unexpected leakage or urine which occurs when coughing,
sneezing, laughing, lifting, etc. Most women actually experience a combination
of these two forms.
The comprehensive program at both locations includes both behavioral modifications
and pelvic floor rehabilitation. Voiding patterns are analyzed through
the use of a bladder diary. Therapists can then make suggestions for dietary
or activity modifications to better manage symptoms. Therapists also works
with patients to increase awareness, and to strengthen and improve voluntary
control of important pelvic floor muscles.
Incontinence is NOT normal, and almost all adults who suffer from this
condition can learn to better manage this problem.
