Continence Services at BHS
Incontinence is not just physically uncomfortable - its symptoms can have a dramatic impact on lifestyle, preventing sufferers from going where they want to go and doing things they want to do. Incontinence is not a normal sign of aging; in fact, it affects up to 25 million women and men of all ages in America annually, for many different reasons.
Fortunately, many treatments are available - including a wide variety of non-surgical options - meaning you or a loved one doesn't need to "put up with" the inconvenience or social isolation that continence problems can cause. The Continence Center is here to help identify the source of the problem, and provide personalized treatment and therapy to improve continence and quality of life.
The Continence Center understands that talking about continence issues can be uncomfortable or even embarrassing. That's why our staff is specially trained to make it easy for you to have a candid conversation about the ways incontinence is affecting your work or social life, or your relationships. They are prepared to help you learn the reason for your incontinence, and to work with you to determine which solutions are best.
At the Continence Center, we offer many different diagnostic and therapeutic services, including:
- Pelvic Muscle Exercises
