What types of urinary incontinence treatments are there?

The four most common types of urinary incontinence are stress urinary incontinence, urge urinary incontinence, mixed urinary incontinence and overflow incontinence. Stress urinary incontinence is leakage with physical activity. Urge urinary incontinence is leakage preceded by a sudden urge to urinate. Mixed urinary incontinence is a mix of both stress and urge incontinence. Overflow incontinence is leakage due to a bladder that is always too full. We can effectively treat all types of urinary incontinence and will tailor your treatment to your exact needs and goals.

What causes bladder incontinence?

While the likelihood of experiencing urinary incontinence increases with age, it can result or worsen after childbirth and other life experiences. Urinary incontinence can be caused by a urethra that does not compress tightly enough (stress urinary incontinence), the bladder muscle contracting when it is not supposed to (urge urinary incontinence) and urinary retention, or the inability to urinate (overflow incontinence).
