Fairview Incontinence and Pelvic Pain Rehabilitation

Incontinence can be treated.

Incontinence is the loss of control over your bladder or bowel. If you have it, you cannot predict when you will urinate or have a bowel movement. This is a common problem for men and women of all ages. As many as 20 million people experience incontinence.

Some people never seek help because they are ashamed or embarrassed. Others think nothing can be done about it. But the problem can be treated.

Conditions we treat
  • Stress incontinence – a small amount of urine is released when you laugh, cough, sneeze, run or do other physical activities.
  • Urge incontinence – the urge to urinate comes on so quickly that you often cannot reach the toilet in time.
  • Overflow incontinence – your bladder is always full, causing it to release small amounts of urine at a time.
  • Reflex incontinence – nerve damage that causes a loss of bladder control.
  • Fecal incontinence – problems with the rectal nerves or muscles cause the release of stool (bowel movements) or the staining of underclothes.
  • Pelvic pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Genital pain
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Pain after childbirth
  • Pain after abdominal surgery
