Suffering from incontinence? Physical therapy may be an option!
Suffering from incontinence? Physical therapy may be an option!

If you suffer from urinary incontinence, you’re not alone – over 17 million Americans (generally women) suffer from incontinence. However, most of those 17 million don’t know that there is a treatment option, and that option is physical therapy.

Talking about urinary incontinence can be intimidating and uncomfortable, and seeking treatment only amplifies that intimidation and discomfort. Today, our Women’s Health team from ATI Physical Therapy shares what to expect from therapy so that you can take the next step and get help:

- Evaluation of the extent of the incontinence

- Education about the bladder, pelvic floor muscles, and emptying techniques

- Tips on lifestyle changes for diet/fluid management

- Exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles

- 1-2 office visits per week for 3-4 weeks (depending on need)

- At-home exercise program

- Periodic return to office to check progress and make any necessary adjustments to treatment plan

- EMG/Biofeedback and/or electrical stimulation of the pelvic floor muscles (if necessary)

Many patients see improvement within two weeks! If you’re ready to seek treatment, here are some options.
