Addressing Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress Urinary Incontinence (leaking of urine with coughing, sneezing, laughing, jumping/jarring activities, or with exercise) is most always thought to be associated with weak pelvic floor muscles that are “under-active” — not contracting strongly enough to do their job. However, many times the problem is caused by “over-active” pelvic floor muscles, or muscles that are in a constant state of contraction.

The Significance of Pelvic Floor Muscle Dysfunction
