Urine Loss When Coughing, Laughing and Jumping: is This Normal?

Do you experience small urine loss when you cough, sneeze, jump and/or laugh? Do you think it's normal to have these little leaks with age or with impact sports? In fact, this isn’t right, and you don’t have to suffer this inconvenience! Here’s some good news: there are treatments to help you.

Stress urinary incontinence, which is characterized by loss of urine during a physical effort or when coughing and sneezing, is due to the weakness of the pelvic floor. The pelvic floor muscles form the base of the pelvis and support the rectum, the uterus, and the bladder.

You must ask yourself why your muscles are weaker. There are several reasons for this weakness: pregnancy, hormonal changes during menopause, impact sports, constipation or excess weight.

You will probably be surprised to know that stress urinary incontinence can be treated with physiotherapy. In fact, a physiotherapist specializing in pelvic and perineal rehabilitation will evaluate the strength, proprioception, and endurance of your muscles. From this examination, you will be taught a program adapted to your condition, your strength and the sports you practice.

If you have any questions or if you would like to make an appointment for a perineal rehabilitation assessment, don’t hesitate to call your Action Sport Physio clinic.
