Information on Incontinence

DescriptionIncontinence is an uncontrollable release of urine at times that are unwanted or inappropriate. It can be caused by a weakening of the muscles of the pelvic floor or bladder associated with childbirth, inactivity and constant sitting, or with aging.
Treatment PlanBladder tonic-astringents are always helpful. Alternate hot and cold sitz baths (3 minutes hot, 1 minute cold) can be beneficial, as well as walking, swimming, biking, or running exercises.
