Rooted in a deep understanding of physical health, this guide offers a range of treatments and exercises designed to help those who suffer from incontinence achieve greater freedom and more confident lifestyles. Utilizing important new research, this guide encourages incontinence victims to engage in a vigorous routine of physical activity designed to increase circulation and muscular control of the abdominal and pelvic region. Building on that base of good physical health, patients are then emboldened to make the lifestyle changes necessary to achieve lasting relief from the stigma associated with incontinence.
