Urinary Incontinence

Urinary Incontinence is a hidden epidemic and is a result of muscle weakness and or sensory loss.

Many feel incontinence is part of the normal aging process. IT IS NOT!

Here are some common issues related to Urinary Incontinence:

Stress: Leakage of small amounts or urine during physical movement (coughing, transfers). Usually from pelvic floor muscle weakness.

Urge: Involuntary loss of urine associates with strong desire to void. Leakage of large amounts of urine at unexpected times, including sleep. Sensory loss is a strong influence.

Mixed: Occurrence of stress and urge in continence together. Is the most common type of UI in the elderly.

Functional: Incontinence due to inability to access toilet, due to physical disability, weakness, external obstacles, inability to manage clothing, and or cognitive impairments.

Overflow: Unexpected leakage of small amounts of urine (without movement) because bladder is excessively full. Is dangerous and requires immediate medical attention.
