However, this article will focus on the type of urinary incontinence that can be addressed and treated at NV Medical Orlando. Stress Urinary Incontinence is a specific type of incontinence that is associated with leakage of urine with activities that cause an increase in abdominal pressure. These activities can include jumping, running, sneezing, coughing, exercising, and heavy lifting.
This condition most commonly occurs after pregnancy and childbirth, after weight gain, after pelvic floor surgery, such as a hysterectomy, and during the normal aging process.
Pelvic Floor Therapy is physical therapy for the pelvis. It is an intensive program that typically consists of 1-2 sessions per week for 6-8 weeks
After a thorough evaluation by a Urologist or a Urogynecologist, recommendation for surgical intervention may be made. These can include placing bulking material in your urethra, placement of a sling with mesh, graft material or use of your own tissue to support the urethra.
