What causes bladder disorders?
Bladder disorders can be caused by disease, injury, accident or age. In addition, certain bladder conditions are seen as a side effect of other conditions.
The following bladder problems can be treated at The Clark Center for Urogynecology:
Stress Incontinence - Leaking urine with activity including coughing, sneezing or exercise.
Overactive Bladder - An overactive bladder means that you urinate frequently and sometimes you cannot make it to the restroom in time.
Nocturia - Those who wake more frequently to urinate suffer from what is called nocturia.
Neurogenic Bladder - Neurogenic bladder includes bladder disorders related to the nerves that control the bladder.
Interstitial Cystitis - This chronic inflammation of the bladder lining can be painful and cause frequent urination.
Cystocele - A prolapsed bladder, called Cystocele, occurs when the bladder bulges into the vagina. It occurs as a result of injury, illness or chronic straining.

What causes bowel disorder?
Bowel disorders can be caused by any number of reasons, including disease, traumatic injury, injuries to pelvic floor related to giving birth, certain surgeries, and other general health problems.
While The Clark Center for Urogynecology treats many different bowel disorders, some of the most common includes:
Fecal Incontinence - Around 1 in 12 people suffer from this on occasion. It occurs when a person passes stool or mucus from the rectum without control.
Chronic Constipation - Long term constipation can be a problem that leads to more severe conditions. Treating this issue before it worsens is vital.
Rectocele - A prolapsed rectum means the rectum bulges into the vagina. It may occur as the result of an injury, chronic constipation, increased pressure from obesity or long-term heavy lifting.
