With age and childbirth, women experience a weakening of the pelvic floor muscles. One in four women may struggle with bladder control. Incontinence can be difficult for women to bring up during an office visit. As their trusted doctor, we hope you’ll help ease their burden and let them know that confidential services are available through Providence Rehabilitation Services.
Specialized physical therapists teach women exercises that increase pelvic muscle strength and lead to improved control. In conjunction with physical therapy, the program also employs biofeedback as another tool to help women learn better muscle control.
If your patient is of an age at which she might be struggling with urinary incontinence, or has recently gone through childbirth, consider bringing up the issue. Women who experience this challenge deserve the confidence and freedom that comes with regaining control.
