In 2001, over 13 million people, or 1 in 20 adults were diagnosed with urinary incontinence. This disorder affects women twice as often than men with 35% of women of 65 years of age affected and 10% of women under 65. Among women of childbearing age, incontinence and pelvic floor muscle weakness can be caused by pregnancy and childbirth. In men, an enlarged prostrate can lead to incontinence. Physical therapy can help you by teaching pelvic floor muscle strengthening exercises to regain control over these muscles.
