At NYU Langone, our doctors provide ongoing support, whether you’ve chosen to manage urinary incontinence with or without surgery. Incontinence can interfere with a woman’s quality of life, so our specialists offer different support services.
Physical therapists at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation can teach you exercises designed to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor. These exercises can help support the bladder and control the flow of urine while you are taking medication or preparing for surgery for urinary incontinence.
To address the emotional effects of incontinence, your doctor can refer you to a mental health specialist for therapy. He or she may also recommend support groups that can help you to cope with any emotional difficulties associated with the symptoms of stress or urgency incontinence.
