Incontinence

Q. I was surprised to read your article about Urinary Incontinence - I didn't think of this as a Physical Therapy Question.

So, here's my question - If I am laying down (or sometimes even sitting) I have a little "dribbling" problem when I stand up. If I am already standing it never happens. Is there some sort of PT I can do for this. (I am a 68 year old female).

A. Yes there is treatment that we would be able to do- most likely the change in position is contracting your abdominals and the pelvic floor musculature is not strong enough to hold the urine, therefore it results in leakage .

It is often thought that people need to live with urinary 'dribbling' but this is not true!
