Incontinence Consultations

Have you ever noticed how many Depends ads and commercials are out there, but no one advertises any real solutions to this common problem? Whether you are experiencing leaking following birth or years later, there are options and real solutions. Depends are just a bandaid. Surgical options are offered, but maybe there is a less invasive solutions for you. Schedule a consultation to learn about different types of urinary incontinence and how each may be treated. For many women, pelvic floor strengthening through physical therapy or electrical muscle stimulation and gels that improve skin and tissue elasticity may be all that is needed. Referrals to local Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist are available.
