- Do you wear a pad just in case of accidents?
- Are you embarrassed when you wet your underwear in public because you sneeze or
laugh too hard?
- Are you spending more time in the bathroom than in the family room because you have to go too often?
These are typical scenarios for men and women who suffer from urinary incontinence. This condition is not a disease; it is usually attributed too weak pelvic floor muscles and/or bad habits.
Our female therapists are specially trained professionals who help strengthen your muscles and reinforce your drinking habits and your ability to handle the accidents. With their help, you can have a bladder stress-free life again.
Our rehab specialists are trained to treat the different types of incontinence (urge, stress and mixed).
Following a thorough evaluation, your therapist will develop an individualized treatment program to meet each patient's needs. Treatments often consist of biofeedback; electrical stimulation; releasing tight muscles and specific exercises to strengthen the pelvic, abdominal and low back muscles.
Our Washington Square Rehab specialists provide in-depth education and introduce ways for the patient to help themselves reduce or eliminate their incontinence and return to a healthy, active lifestyle.
