Bladder Control

Post surgical rehab Issaquah, Bellevue, Kirkland & Seattle, WA

Many patients are not aware that easy solutions and training exercises are available to combat common bladder issues in both women and men. Our patients have benefited from education, activity modification and exercise as opposed to the typical course of treatment, which includes medications and/or other more invasive treatments.

Possible symptoms:

  • Change in frequency and urgency to urinate
  • No longer making it to the toilet without having a leak accident
  • Leak accident with physical stresses (cough, sneeze, sudden physical movement)
  • Difficulty relaxing muscles or unexplainable onset of dyspareunia (difficult or painful intercourse)

Possible reasons for changes in bladder control:

  • Muscle weakness of the pelvic floor and/or associated lower abdominal wall muscles; may be due to deconditioning or pre/postnatal changes
  • Muscle tightness or reflexive tightening of pelvic floor muscles
  • Beginning stages of organ prolapse
  • Changes in nerve function

Our physical therapists who work with bladder control changes can help you effectively manage your concerns and keep you active. Download our Bladder Brochure for more information. For more information, Contact us at Issaquah, Bellevue, Kirkland & Seattle, WA centers.
