Incontinence

INCONTINENCE

Natural deliveries of multiple babies is the major cause of incontinence.
The pelvic floor muscle is overstretched thus it is unable to contract properly and prevent
leakage.

Types of incontinence:

  • Stress incontinence: leakage during coughing, sneezing, laughing, jumping, lifting
  • Urge incontinence: leakage during a trigger such as the sound of running water, getting
    into the elevator, opening house’s door
  • Runner’s incontinence: leakage during running
  • Weight lifter’s incontinence: leakage during heavy weight lifting training

On the first session, our physiotherapist would treat and monitor incontinence by performing:

  • Fluid intake diary/ Bladder output diary
  • Manual testing of pelvic floor muscles: to check for strength and asymmetry
  • Biofeedback machine: to determine the exact strength of pelvic floor muscles
  • Electric stimulation: to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles
  • Post electric stimulation Biofeedback machine: to reassess the pelvic floor muscles
    strength
  • Abdominal separation assessment: to determine the severity of abdominal separation

On following sessions:

  • List of bladder irritating food and fluid to avoid
  • Biofeedback machine: to determine the exact strength of pelvic floor muscles
  • Electric stimulation: to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles
  • Post electric stimulation Biofeedback machine: to reassess the pelvic floor muscles
    strength
  • Kegel exercise
  • Incontinence incident diary
  • Pelvic floor muscle educator

The parameter of the electric stimulation and the type of kegel exercise depends on the type
incontinence.
