The face of healthcare is changing. More and more, patients are becoming active participants in their own health through diet, exercise, preventive care and self-care. In support of that trend, our physician specialists are implementing FREE online Self-Care Plans—the first is for those who struggle with urinary incontinence including bladder leakage or sudden and frequent urges to go.
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR INCONTINENCE
The Incontinence Self-Care Plan includes simple steps people can take on their own to improve bladder control. Following this plan, most people will be able to significantly improve or completely control their incontinence symptoms and improve their quality of life. Here's how it works:
The first important step is to take our Urinary Incontinence Profiler. This will assess the type, severity and likely causes of your urinary incontinence and how it affects your daily life.
At the end of the profiler, sign up for our free online self-care plan.
Once you sign up, you can easily access your password-protected Self-Care Plan whenever you want to learn how to help yourself, set goals and reminders, and track your successes.
If at any point you feel you need medical help for your incontinence, we offer a full range of treatment options. Call your primary care provider or the Continence and Pelvic Prolapse Clinic at (608) 775-2277.
