“Stress Incontinence: An Overview”

By Dr. Charles Feinstein

Incontinence, or the inability to control one’s bladder resulting in urine leakage, may have many causes. Stress incontinence is caused not by mental stress, but during an activity of physical stress, such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, or lifting. This type of incontinence is most common in women who have given birth. The weakening of the pelvic muscles may cause the bladder to reposition, thus preventing the urethra from closing.

Stress incontinence may be treated with Physical Therapy, medications, surgery, or a combination of all treatments. For more information about stress incontinence, call Doctor Feinstein at 847.291.9058.
