Stress incontinence is caused by an impairment of the pelvic floor muscles. The primary symptom is losing urine during a stressful activity i.e. coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise. You are not alone! Consumer research reveals that one in four women over the age of 18 experience leaking urine involuntarily. (http://www.nafc.org)
A study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine (March 18, 2008) reports that pelvic floor muscle training, in conjunction with bladder training, resolved the symptoms of urinary incontinence in women. The study included 96 randomized controlled trials and 3 systematic reviews from 1990 through 2007.
