Urinary Incontinence

What is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary Incontinence (UI) means a person leaks urine by accident. While it can happen to anyone, it is more common in older people, especially women. Bladder control issues can be embarrassing and cause people to avoid normal activities. UI can often be controlled or stopped entirely.

Type of UI:

  • Stress incontinence: exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughing or heavy lifting
  • Urge incontinence: when people have a sudden urge to urinate and cannot hold their urine long enough to get to the toilet
  • Mixed Incontinence: SUI and urge incontinence is known as mixed incontinence
  • Overflow incontinence: when a small amount of urine leaks from a bladder that is always full. Can be due to an enlarged prostate blocking the urethra
  • Functional incontinence: people (usually older) who have difficulty physically getting to the toilet

Andre has been treating me for 4 months now. I came to him for my chronic prostatitis (chronic pelvic pain syndrome). The progress has been astonishing and after having seen 10+ doctors/physiotherapists I can say that Andre is leading the way for treatment. He has been the only one that is able to help me and the improvements in my condition speaks for itself. I highly recommend Andre/ALO Physiotherapy, specifically if you're struggling with Men's Health.
