- Conquering Urinary Frequency and Urgency

Time: 7:00 PM

With Kristen Pierce, physical therapist, Wednesday, October 2, 7 p.m.
Sycamore room

If you suffer from urinary incontinence – the loss of bladder control or urinary leakage – you are not alone. The good news? It can often be treated with conservative measures. Options such as Kegel exercises, bladder retraining, and botox along with physical therapy are options that have few side effects. Physical therapy may include: education on food and drinks that may irritate the bladder; techniques to help find the right muscles and learn to use them correctly; exercises to strengthen the pelvic muscles; ways to decrease urinary urge and frequency as well as biofeedback.

Upper extremity pain and stiffness is common following surgery for breast cancer.  Women who have had breast cancer surgery may experience some type of ongoing problems with shoulder and/or arm function, chest wall pain and weakness.

As a result of these postoperative problems, women may experience a reduced quality of life experiencing long term difficulties with everyday activities including: driving, dressing, washing hair, and sleeping on the involved side. For many women, the ‘cure’ produces other problems.

Learn how physical therapists with specialized training in breast cancer rehabilitation are the ideal health care providers to address these musculoskeletal problems and help you achieve a pain free and fully functional lifestyle.
