This condition may occur when the muscles around the urethra become weak. Even small amounts of physical stress, including everyday activities such as coughing, laughing, sneezing, exercising, even walking briskly, can cause the release of urine.
The good news is that, in may cases, overactive bladder, or stress incontinence can be successfully managed with the help of a professional. It is nothing to be embarassed about!
Call us today if you have any questions, we are here to help!
