Incontinence treatment

Finding the right incontinence treatment

Incontinence

33 million people in the United States suffer from bladder control problems.

Sometimes incontinence is an ongoing problem, in which case the cause might be:

  • the bladder cannot empty completely
  • weakening of the muscles that help to hold or release urine
  • a blocked urinary passage
  • damage to the nerves that control the bladder

Sometimes diseases such as arthritis make it hard to get to the bathroom in time and can make it even harder to control urine leakage.
