When A Sneeze Isn’t Just a Sneeze…

Stress urinary incontinence is a common affliction in adult women.  While surgery is often an option for addressing this problem, there are also lots of conservative interventions that can help reduce symptoms.  Performing Kegel exercises regularly, attending biofeedback or working with a pelvic floor physical therapist are all excellent ways to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.  Use of bladder supports such as the Poise Impressa and pessaries are also great options that give the bladder and urethra reinforcement when coughing, laughing, sneezing, and exercising.
