It is estimated that up to one-quarter of American women suffer from urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is the accidental and uncontrolled loss of urine. Many women experience a leakage of urine when they sneeze, cough, laugh, or exercise. Aging, pregnancy, childbirth, constipation, and even hormonal changes, can weaken the pelvic floor and cause urine to accidentally leak. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we offer a medical team approach to treat stress incontinence, urge incontinence or a combination of both. Studies have shown that physical therapy can significantly benefit those who suffer from a weakened pelvic floor.
