Incontinence & Pelvic floor rehabilitation: The best physiotherapy treatment against incontinence in London
What is Urinary incontinence or stress incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control, which results to occasional leaks or dribbles of urine. People that are affected more severely may experience heavier leaks and more frequently. It affects both men and women of all ages, although it affects twice as many women and becomes more frequent with age, and it can be an embarrassing issue for many.

Why do I have urinary incontinence?
The severity of incontinence ranges from occasional leaks when sneezing or coughing, to sudden strong urges to go to the toilet, which appear very frequently. The causes are different depending on the condition, but some causes may be:
- Weakening of the pelvic floor muscles and the urethral sphincter
- Overactivity of the detrusor muscles
- Pregnancy and giving birth
- Prostate removal
The different types of urinary incontinence are
- Stress incontinence: This is the loss of urine when pressure on the bladder is increased for example by coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise. It occurs when the pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder are weakened. Common causes for this are childbirth and menopause in women, and prostate removal in men.
- Urge incontinence: This is when you have an urgent need to pass urine, so much that you might not be able to make it to the toilet on time, resulting in a leak. People with urge incontinence need to urinate often, including throughout the night. It can be caused by an overactive bladder, urinary tract infections, bowel problems and conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.
- Overflow incontinence: This is the frequent or constant dribble of urine. Your bladder will fill up as usual, but due to a blockage or obstruction, you will not be able to empty it completely. The blockage can be caused by bladder damage, a blocked urethra, nerve damage, bladder stones or an enlarged prostate gland.
- Total incontinence: This is the continuous leaking or urine or frequent leaking of large volumes of urine. This happens when your bladder cannot store urine at all and it can be caused by a bladder problem from birth, spinal cord injury or a bladder fistula.
