At Solace Physiotherapy Clinic, we understand that urinary incontinence can manifest in various ways. It
may occur frequently or infrequently, and the amount of urine loss can range from a few drops to a full
bladder emptying. Incontinence can also be predictable or unpredictable, and may even occur only
during the night. Regardless of the severity or frequency of your symptoms, it’s important to know that
incontinence is not a normal condition and can be treated. Seeking treatment early can also prevent the
progression of symptoms.
Urinary incontinence is a common issue in Vancouver, affecting at least 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men.
However, due to the stigma surrounding the topic, many individuals may not seek help or assume it is a
normal part of aging. The causes of urinary incontinence can vary, from pelvic foor damage during
pregnancy and childbirth to nerve damage from surgery or other medical conditions. Other factors, such
as obesity, muscle weakness, diabetes, and smoking, can also contribute to the condition. It’s important
to seek medical advice and treatment to improve quality of life.
Solace Physiotherapy Clinic offers a range of treatments for incontinence, including pelvic floor
physiotherapy. While Kegel exercises are often recommended as part of a treatment program, they may
not be suitable for everyone and can even be counterproductive in some cases. That’s why our approach
to pelvic floor physiotherapy includes a personalized treatment plan that may include lifestyle
interventions, pelvic floor muscle training, and hands-on therapy. Our goal is to improve or eliminate
your symptoms, regardless of the underlying cause, whether it’s weakness, trauma, injury, Let us help you regain control and confidence in your daily life.
The first line of medical intervention for urinary incontinence that does not respond to pelvic floor
rehabilitation is usually drug therapy (typically drugs that block the neurotransmitter acetylcholine),
and for more difficult cases, surgical procedures are available that are either minimally invasive or
invasive, depending on the underlying cause.
