Urinary and fecal incontinence are conditions marked by the inability to control bowel movements or urination1. These issues can significantly impact your quality of life, causing distress and embarrassment. However, with pelvic physical therapy, you can regain control and restore your confidence.

Understanding Urinary and Fecal Incontinence

Urinary incontinence involves the unintentional loss of urine, while fecal incontinence refers to the inability to control bowel movements. These conditions can be caused by a variety of factors, including childbirth, aging, menopause, prostate issues, surgery, nerve damage, and obesity.

Treating Incontinence with Pelvic Physical Therapy

Pelvic physical therapy is a non-invasive and effective treatment option for urinary and fecal incontinence. It involves techniques designed to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which play a crucial role in controlling urination and bowel movements.

A pelvic physical therapist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan, which may include exercises, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, and education about lifestyle changes.
