Urinary Incontinence

Did you know 21.8% of Canadians suffer from bladder problems, (1) for example urge incontinence, occurs when one feels the urge to void & eliminate immediately, and stress incontinence creates urine leakage when certain physical activities affect the bladder such as: coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting heavy objects etc. This is costing Canadians $1.5 billion each year.

* Female gender (85%)
* Over 40 yrs of age (1 in 3)
* Obesity
* Obstetric Trauma

Is it Treatable without Medication or Surgery?

Yes, re-training the pelvic floor muscles through a specific exercise program and Physiotherapy treatments may significantly reduce, and even eliminate pelvic floor dysfunctions and symptoms.
