Have you been told that you have stress, urge, or mixed incontinence and that you have to wear a pad for the rest of your life?
Well …you are not alone! 1 in 3 women will have some urinary incontinence which, if not properly addressed, will lead to chronic long-term incontinence.
Unfortunately, wearing a pad is not a SOLUTION! It’s a containment method!!! And frankly, we think it’s just unacceptable.
Well, when you’re continent, it’s because certain muscles in your pelvic area are doing the job they were meant to do! When you’re incontinent, these muscles aren’t functioning properly, and need to be retrained… and the more you exercise them, the better they do their job. Doesn’t that sound like a better solution than using a pad to just absorb the leaks? And that’s why physical therapists have been helping women with incontinence issues for well over 25 years…by retraining the pelvic muscles.

I’m sure you’ve all heard of Kegel exercises at one time or another. These are exercises designed to retrain the pelvic muscles. They alone don’t work very well with stress, urge, or mixed incontinence because:
Some of you may have tried kegel exercises, only to find that they did not improve the leaking.
A common reason for Kegels not working, according to one study published by Henderson, et al, is a quarter of women do not perform Kegels correctly. They either contract the wrong muscles or fail to hold the contraction long enough, often because the muscles are already so weak. Or, they aren’t working because there is too much tissue inflammation causing restrictions over the bladder.
