Urge, stress and mixed UI all respond very well to physical therapy interventions, usually with a high percentage of improvement noted – if not complete resolution of symptoms. The outcome of further medical interventions, should they be necessary, will only be helped by strong pelvic floor training. Just as someone having knee surgery is encouraged (or even required) to get physical therapy for a few weeks prior to surgery, the pelvic region also benefits from a little “advance training.”
Only you and your doctor can determine the best route for your particular condition. No matter how long it has been going on, symptoms CAN improve! Should you have any questions regarding physical therapy for UI, hesitancy, frequency or other pelvic conditions, please discuss it with your physician.
