How does physical therapy treat incontinence in men?
Incontinence typically streams from weakness or uncontrollable spasms in the pelvic floor muscles. These conditions cause you to lose control of your bladder. Physical therapy can help you regain control over your bladder and avoid incidents of incontinence by strengthening your pelvic floor muscles.
When you meet with a physical therapist for incontinence or other pelvic floor issues, they’ll walk you through a series of muscle-strengthening exercises to perform both in the office and at home outside of your appointment. This exercise program will help stretch and strengthen the muscles that support your bladder so that you can regain control of it. They may also apply manual therapy or modalities such as heat or electrical stimulation to reduce pain and promote healing of any injured muscles.
