Urinary Incontinence (UI), or loss of bladder control, is a condition affecting over 200 million people worldwide.¹ Normally, the bladder’s function is to store urine but whenever any part of the urinary system malfunctions, it can lead to incontinence. The frequency of toileting and/or the urgency to void increases the risk of falls by as much as 26% and bone fractures as much as 34%.1 Therefore, it is important to consult with your physician due to these increased risk factors, as there may be different non-surgical therapies in which one can participate to improve bladder control.
