Suffering from bladder leakage issues? Surgery isn't the only option

– Is that those supporting tissues at the bladder neck are stretched or damaged. When there is increased abdominal pressure that presses on the bladder, the bladder neck doesn’t close like it should because of damage to the underlying supporting tissue, and urine leaks out.

So what can be done? While surgery is an option for those who want to pursue more advanced treatments, there are a few things you can start with that don’t require surgery or even a doctor’s visit.

Kegel exercises

When you’re emptying your bladder and want to stop mid-stream, the muscular effort to do that is called a Kegel squeeze. Try practicing this muscular clenching periodically, even when when you are not going to the bathroom. This squeezing strengthens the posterior muscles of your pelvis and helps elevate it to give your bladder neck something to compress down on so it stays closed. It’s not perfect, but it can help.
