Conquering Incontinence

New or Used: 2 copies from $19.27
In adulthood, one in three women and one in ten men experience a degree of urinary incontinence. It is a serious problem, and one which affects people socially, physically and psychologically. There are four basic types of incontinence: overflow (false) incontinence - when the bladder never drains completely; stress incontinence - when any movement that increases pressure in the abdominal cavity results in urine leakage; urge incontinence - when the urge to urinate is so great, it can't be held in. The bladder muscle contracts in spasm so strongly it squeezes fluid out; and mixed incontinence - when two or more types of incontinence occur together, such as stress and urge incontinence. This guide's physical approach to a freer lifestyle suggests a range of different treatment options, as Peter Dornan, writing from personal experience, gets behind the stigma and misunderstandings to help you improve or overcome your problem. Imagine the freedom that life without incontinence could offer you.
