Abstract

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common condition for women of all ages and is a common problem but should not normal. The impact on a woman can significant and can cost time, social, and psychological effects on the individual. Incontinence can occur for various reasons; however, SUI is specially the involuntary leakage of urine during times of efforts such as running, sneezing, coughing or exercise. Treatments usually focus on improving the function of a set of muscle called the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor muscles support the bladder and assist in the function of improving SUI symptoms. By studying the various rehabilitation methods of treatment for SUI, we can give patients a better rationale on why we are treating their condition with multiple methods instead of just one way. The treatment options can vary widely, yet the awareness is not as prevalent for women with this condition.
