Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
The solution to most bladder control issues is as simple as pelvic floor exercises. These exercises are extremely simple and can even be done at home. The key to these exercises is locating the muscles that make up the pelvic floor, or the Kegel muscles. The Kegel muscles contract and release naturally to control the flow of urine out of the body. Certain life events such as pregnancy and child birth can cause the Kegel muscles to weaken, a process which can cause bladder leakage, among other issues.
Pelvic floor therapy is focused on repeated contracting and relaxing of the pelvic muscles. Like any muscles, repeated and focused exercise gives these muscles a chance to strengthen. As the muscles strengthen, they can return to the level of functionality they had pre-pregnancy/childbirth.
