Physical Therapy to Help Urinary Incontinence

Physical Therapy to Help Urinary Incontinence

I had my first session of physical therapy on Thursday, April 28, 2016. It went well. Dr. Kathleen Roth taught me 3 different exercises and then I had to do each exercise 3 times. I laid on my back with my knees up. She placed one hand on my perineum on top of my shorts during the exercises to make sure I was doing them correctly. She used her other hand to count the muscle contractions. I did a total of 30 Kegel exercises. She said I did well. She gave me homework. I have to do each exercise 10 times each session and do 3 sessions per day for 3 weeks. I will return for more therapy in 3 weeks. So I need 90 Kegel exercises every day. That will make my muscles stronger.

Kegel exercises help with incontinence and impotence.

May 19, 2016---2nd physical therapy with my therapist. She said I am doing well. I did 30 Kegel exercises which I learned last. time. Then she taught me new exercises which involved strapping my ankle to the bed with a rubber band and kicking in 4 different directions. I did 40 exercises with each leg. She gave me homework to practice for 3 more weeks. I have to continue to do 90 other Kegel exercises every day.
