Changes occur as we age, as part of cancer treatment or if we are on endocrine therapy. One we do not like to talk about is urinary urgency and leakage. How can you take control of your bladder?
Avoid Bladder Irritants: Bladder irritants may cause your bladder to spasm which can cause urgency and leakage. Some irritants include: - Alcohol - Carbonated Beverages - Caffeine - Artificial Sweeteners - Acidic Foods
Stay well hydrated: Water helps prevent bladder irritation by diluting the fluid in your bladder and making the environment less irritated.
Stay active: Walking and other forms of exercise strengthen your pelvic floor muscles which are the group of muscles in charge of keeping you dry.
Do you have issues with urinary incontinence and/or urgency? Call or email CRA today and schedule a pelvic floor consult with our pelvic floor therapist Dr. Angela Wicker-Ramos PT, DPT, CLT-LANA.
