Here is My Question:
Will Kegel exercises improve my bladder incontinence?
Kegel or pelvic floor muscle exercises can help diminish urge incontinence by inhibiting bladder contractions. These exercises are a staple of treatment for those with neurogenic bladders, particularly younger individuals. Additional treatments are often required as well, including timed urination and defecation, eliminating constipation, limiting fluid intake during certain times of day and often the addition of appropriated dosed medications.
