Incontinence affects more than 25 million Americans. 1 in 4 women experience involuntary loss of urine.
There are three types of incontinence:
- Stress: leakage of urine with cough, sneezing, laughing, straining or lifting. *most common cause of incontinence
- Urge: a sudden need to urinate with little or no warning. This often causes urination before getting to the toilet.
- Overflow: the leaking of urine due to prostate enlargement, pelvic organ slippage or nerve damage.
Did you Know Physical Therapy Can Help?
TBTW’s skilled Physical therapists can help you retrain the muscles of your pelvic floor. There are “hammock” like muscles that support your bladder, control the flow of urine and prevent pelvic organ prolapse. Incontinence can also occur because another issue prevents you from reaching the bathroom in time. This can be due to: arthritis, pain, muscle weakness, decreased balance, poor mobility, and other things.
By exercising and re-educating the muscles of you pelvic floor we can: Properly support the bladder and pelvic organs, prevent leakage of urine with stressful activities, control unconscious dripping of urine during daily activities, hold back the urge to urinate until a bathroom is reached.
“I leak because I have trouble getting to the toilet in time.”
TBTW can address these issues while strengthening your PF muscles. This will allow you to hold urine/bowels while your second condition is improves.
No one needs to touch you “down there.”
TBTW has specialized equipment to detect if you are performing the correct muscle contraction while stretching and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. No touching is needed.
Equipment is inserted by the PATIENT!
There are no messy wires, pads, probes or needles that need to be applied by a professional. TBTW allows you to keep your private parts private.
