The loss of bladder or bowel control – is a relatively common medical problem. But incontinence is NOT a normal OR an inevitable part of growing older. Moreover, the highly personal nature of the issue prevents people from talking about it with their friends, family members, and sometimes even their doctors, leaving many individuals to suffer in silence.
As a part of Kaplan’s free Community Health Lecture Series, physical therapist Jeanne Scheele explained the urological system (UG system) and the factors that influence bladder urgency & frequency, stress incontinence, and normal/abnormal behaviors of the UG system. Jeanne also discussed several ways to manage symptoms in order to regain control and lessen the stress and anxiety that incontinence issues cause for so many women.
