Treating incontinence with pelvic floor rehab

HICKORY, NC (WBTV) - Millions of Americans are afflicted with incontinence. Bladder control can especially become a problem for women with children, later in life. The organs in the pelvic region can shift and cause urine leakage.

While some people may be embarrassed, doctors say it is best to seek treatment. In Thursday's Health Connections report, Dr. Ryan Richardson talked about Pelvic Floor Rehab. The treatment includes everything from exercise to surgical options.

You can watch Health Connections Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. and again Thursdays on WBTV This Morning.
