What if physical therapy doesn’t completely stop the leakage?

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. Should further interventions be necessary, they will only be helped by good 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.” And keep in mind training could mean learning to relax the pelvic muscles as much (or more) than strengthening them!

Only you can determine the best route for your particular condition and know it may be a combination of approaches to fully resolve the issue.

No matter how long it has been going on, symptoms CAN improve! Should you have any questions regarding physical therapy for incontinence, hesitancy, urgency, intermittency frequency or other pelvic conditions, please reach out for help!
