About urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is involuntary leakage of urine. Stress incontinence is when the pressure is applied to the bladder due to a cough, sneeze, and laugh or when lifting objects. Urge incontinence is the feeling that you have to urinate immediately. Overflow incontinence is leakage when the bladder does not empty properly. Total incontinence is the continued leakage of urine.Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence can greatly impact the quality of life, causing the individual to curtail normal activities and social connections, lose self-esteem and bear the cost of medications and incontinence products. It can also cause a loss of skin quality and increase vulnerability to urinary tract infections or pressure sores. Poor recognition or poor treatment may lead to social withdrawal, depression, anxiety or even more devastating consequences.

Causes of urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence should not be considered a normal part of aging, but rather symptoms of underlying conditions. Urinary incontinence can occur at any age but happen more often to older adults or young adults, the elderly and young children.

Besides there may be some other medical issues causing urinary incontinence, also the pelvis tissues in distress and pelvis dysfunction may lead to urinary incontinence. In some cases the muscles in the pelvis are tonic, distorted or restricted; ligaments, scar tissues or fascia of the intestines or urinary tract may hold tension; weak pelvic muscles may lead to abnormal descending of the organs; knots and trigger points may develop.

Any of these problems may affect the junction of visceral organs and cause urinary incontinence.
