Dickinson Rehabilitation Services offers a non-surgical approach to the treatment of urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is the accidental release of urine. This leakage often occurs when you cough, laugh, sneeze, or have sudden urges to go to the bathroom but can’t get there in time. Urinary incontinence is not a disease but a symptom of a problem with the lower urinary tract, and it is very common, especially among older adults. The UI program can address incontinence issues brought about by the following diagnosis: pregnancy/post-partum, menopause, uterine prolapse, hysterectomy, pelvic pain, neurological disorders associated with disease such as multiple sclerosis, prostatectomy/benign prostate hyperplasia, or night time wetting. Additionally, sometimes athletes experience urinary incontinence due to especially active exercise regimens. Typically, urinary incontinence does not cause major health problems, but it can be embarrassing and can affect self-esteem and confidence.
Specially trained physical therapists use a combination of advanced medical technology and exercise regimens to work with you privately and non-invasively so they learn ways to control your condition.
