What is Incontinence?
involuntary loss of urine
20 million are affected in U.S.
can lead to isolation, depression, & reduced quality of life
Treatment
pelvic floor muscle exercises
electrical stimulation
organized voiding schedules
Risk Factors
age
smoking
physical impairments
personal barriers
white race
daily/great consumption of carbonated beverages
childbirth
comorbidities
Because published reports describing effective physical therapy interventions are scarce, it is unknown whether physical therapy is beneficial to all women with urinary incontinence and coexisting pelvic floor disorders.
What is the Problem?
How Do We Resolve These Issues?
The Problem with Pelvic Girdle Pain
many PTs do not have the knowledge
patients have limited access to trained PTs
recognition of trained PTs is minimal
delay between symptoms and PT referral
research to identify effective treatments
proper education
promote Physical therapy to the healthcare world & general population
