Urinary Leakage, Urgency and Frequency – A Physical Therapy Perspective
Some feel that if urinary leakage is infrequent or only happens a few drops at a time, then it’s not considered incontinence. In fact, urinary incontinence (UI) is defined as experiencing involuntary loss of any amount of urine, at any frequency. Leakage does not result from “just getting older” and should not be regarded as inevitable. It is a physical condition that is treatable. If you find that you are going to the bathroom all the time just to avoid leakage/urgency then you likely fall in the UI category as well.
