Common Questions

JInjuryBeforeAfterIs incontinence a normal part of aging?

Although it is normal to lose some strength in the aging process, it is not normal to have leakage occur. As we age and as women have children, incontinence is not an issue that should continue long term to be "dealt with". With the help of physical therapy, patient and therapist as a team can determine weakness, coordination issues, and behavior traits that may need to be modified to decrease incontinence.

How can physical therapy help me pre / post pregnancy?

Even before going through labor there are preventative steps to take to ensure good pelvic floor strength. A pelvic floor PT can also go over appropriate and biomechanically sound labor positions with you. After labor, your body is dealing with a great amount of changes. If you are having pain, incontinence, or even just want have a check up to prevent any future dysfunction, a NC Center for PT physical therapist can answer any questions you have and guide you through the correct exercises.
