Einstein Answers About Urinary Incontinence
Maybe it happens when you cough or sneeze – all of a sudden, there’s a leak of urine. Or maybe you always make sure you know where the bathroom is because you often have to go – right now. Both of these issues are forms of urinary incontinence, a common problem.
One-quarter to one-third of U.S. adults have urinary incontinence, according to the Urology Care Foundation. It’s more common among women and older adults, the foundation says. The risk of leakage also is higher for women who have more children and men who have prostate problems.
Fortunately, there are numerous effective treatments for urinary incontinence. In these videos, Einstein urologist Joshua Cohn, MD, and physical therapist Farah Zeises, MSPF, DPT, explain some of the options. Dr. Cohn sees patients at Einstein offices in Elkins Park and Plymouth Meeting. Learn more about him and make an appointment. MossRehab offers pelvic floor therapy at several locations. Learn more.
