Pelvic Floor Muscles Training for Effective Treatment of Urinary Incontinence.

Urinary incontinence is a common problem that affects the quality of life for millions of men and women in the United States…but, it doesn’t have to anymore.

Training Your Pelvic Floor Muscles Can Help

The muscles of the pelvic floor help support the bladder and the urethra, as well as work to help keep the urethra closed. When these muscles become weak – due to age and loss of estrogen, vaginal delivery of a baby, surgical procedure, or athletic training (such as being a runner) – urine is able to leak. Pelvic floor muscle training works to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, increasing their bulk so that they are stronger and tighter, thus preventing the unwanted leakage of urine.
