Incontinence Tips and Products

Adult incontinence is a subject that many people steer away from, possibly because they do not want to own up to having this type of embarrassing condition or they feel it is a subject people don’t want to hear about, the fact is some 13 million people or one in three older adults live with this condition. Here at Mobility Shopper Reviews we try to cover all subjects and like it or not, incontinence is a fact of life for a great deal of people so we hope the incontinence, tips and products in this article are useful to those seeking it.

Urinary incontinence can happen as we get older and is relatively common in men and women of all ages but particularly common for women during pregnancy or after birth or even as the result of a persistent cough.

Pelvic Floor Exercises

Most men think of pelvic floor exercises as a woman only thing but they often do help men as well as women to strengthen the muscles around the bladder and can in time help to reduce the frequency of urinary incontinence.

Try tensing the muscles (Without tensing the muscles of your leg, buttocks or abdomen, imagine that you are trying to control the passing of gas) do this for 3 seconds and then relax them for another 3 seconds. Build this up over a 3 to 6 week period until you’re doing this around 10 times. Ideally you should aim for about 15 minutes a day.

Like all treatments and exercises you will get varying results but it is well worth trying. Other coping with incontinence tips can be found on the Boots website here.  with details of the causes, diagnoses and real peoples stories on the NHS Choices site here.
