More than 20 million people in the U.S. are affected with some degree of involuntary urine loss. Women are affected twice as frequently as men, and bowel incontinence can range from involuntary loss of gas to loss of stool. Traditional treatments for
incontinence include medication and surgery, but physical therapy is a safe, effective alternative treatment offered at RIM. Many incontinence cases – 60 to 80 percent – can be improved or cured with this specialized physical therapy treatment.
