According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 13 million people in the United States suffer from urinary incontinence.  But in a recent survey by Pure Profile, 8 in 10 women affected by urinary incontinence fail to seek help for the problem, with 72 % preferring to laugh off the health issue. 
 
Urinary incontinence is no joke and doesn’t have to be tolerated.  With pelvic floor muscle therapy, women who suffer from stress urinary incontinence average a 73% cure rate and 97% improvement rate, according to studies published by the National Institute of Health
 
Speaking ahead of World Continence Week, Pelvic Health Physical Therapist, Ms. Anne Smith, said research shows women are continuing to ignore their health needs. “There continues to be a misconception that incontinence is an inevitable result of having children or ageing, and that’s just not true. Incontinence is common but it’s not normal and should be treated, just like any other health condition,” Ms. Smith said.
 
“The good news is treatment usually involves simple lifestyle changes and pelvic floor muscle exercises, which everyone should be doing anyway to prevent incontinence.  Incontinence isn’t something you have to put up with for the rest of your life.”
