Kegel Exercises for Urgency Incontinence

Urgency urinary incontinence is a sense of urinary urgency with the inability to defer urination or make it to the bathroom in time. Treatment may include bladder training, pelvic muscle exercises, physical therapy, medications, or InterStim.

Pelvic muscle exercises or kegels help to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles which can aid in decreasing urinary leakage as well as preventing worsening of incontinence. Performing kegel exercises at the time of urinary urgency between times of regular urination works to suppress this untimely urge and prevent leakage.
