Stress incontinence is caused by a deficiency of the urethral sphincter. This is related to a weakness of the pelvic floor muscles. Movements putting abdominal pressure on the bladder, such as couching, laughing, sneezing, or lifting heavy objects can place excessive pressure that the urinary duct “releases“ by releasing the urine.
Eliminating its causes and catalysts, if possible, can treat stress incontinence. This means enhancing the tissue flexibility and strengthening muscle power. The latter refers to the strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles through gymnastics. If the so-called conservative treatment methods do not lead to any result, the specialist can then perform a surgery. The specialist physician will suggest the most appropriate procedure and technique.
