Doc Talk #55 – Incontinence

 

 

We discussed incontinence in this issue. It is a more common problem than many people realize, especially among women after childbirth and the senior population.

We talked about the different types, including stress and urge incontinence; possible causes, as well as treatments.

The number one message? Don’t be embarrassed – talk to your doctor and see if something can be done to help.

We referenced a number of relevant resources in the show, including Kegel’s exercises, bladder drills and bladder diaries.

Locally we have a Well Woman clinic at the Kalyna Country Primary Care Network (PCN) and we have great community physiotherapy to help as well.
