Women’s Urinary Incontinence Treatment
The Outpatient Rehabilitation Care Center at our Camden Campus offers a
women's health services program to treat urinary incontinence.
What is 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, and presents in two forms: urge and stress.
Most women actually experience a combination of these two forms.
- 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.
Regain confidence and control over your bladder
Our comprehensive outpatient program at our Camden Campus includes both
behavioral modifications and pelvic floor rehabilitation to help decrease
urinary incontinence. 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. Our therapists also work 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.
