Urinary incontinence can be embarrassing and socially debilitating. Urinary incontinence is also highly treatable by the experienced team at The Women’s Group, located in Pensacola, Florida.
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of bladder control that results in an accidental leakage of urine. Depending on the severity, this may be an occasional few drops caused by coughing or jumping, or a chronic sudden urge to urinate followed by a major loss of urine. Some women experience both of these. The likelihood of developing urinary incontinence increases with age, and is twice as prevalent among women than men.

At The Women’s Group we conduct urodynamic studies in-house to diagnosis the underlying cause of incontinence and then determine the best course of treatment. Urodynamic testing utilizes imaging equipment to takes pictures of the bladder filling and emptying, as monitors measure and record the pressures inside the bladder. Testing also involves sensors that record muscle and nerve activity.
