Are you one of the estimated 12 million Americans who is dealing with urinary incontinence? Incontinence affects people of all ages, both sexes and members of every social and economic level. It is estimated that 15 to 30 percent of people over the age of 60 who live at home have incontinence. Women are twice as likely as men to have this condition. Although there are many types of Urinary Incontinence (UI) most involve the unwanted leakage of urine. The total annual cost of providing care for persons with UI is estimated to be $28 billion. In addition, at least half of the 1.5 million Americans who reside in nursing homes are incontinent.

Urinary Incontinence can be embarrassing and puts limits on enjoying life fully.
The inability to control urine is one of the most unpleasant and distressing problems from which a person can suffer, often causing isolation, depression and physiological problems. In addition, UI is also a burden for family caregivers and the community, and the major reason aging parents are put into nursing homes.
Incontinence is a problem that also affects their emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Many people are afraid to participate in normal daily activities that might take them too far from a toilet. So it is particularly important to note that the great majority of incontinence causes can be treated successfully.
Kegel Exercises Recommended for Incontinence
Kegel exercises are classified as behavioral treatment, meaning non-invasive, physical exercises to strengthen the muscles that help hold in urine. But, it can be frustrating and difficult to isolate the right muscles and have the confidence to know that you are doing them correctly to maximize their effect and others with nerve damage cannot tell whether they are doing Kegel exercises correctly or not. Both types can learn proper Kegel exercises by doing special training with biofeedback.
