Bladder Training Q&A
What is Bladder Training?
This is a technique that can be used to gain control of the bladder using “mind over bladder” techniques. It is used for overactive bladder and urge urinary incontinence.
How is Bladder training done?
The bladder has a “mind” of its own. When it fills up with urine, there is a natural response for the bladder to start squeezing. It’s not until we are around 2 years old, that we become “potty trained” and are able to inhibit this reflexive squeeze with our mind. Unfortunately, as we age, the bladder starts to have a “mind” of its own again. Through bladder training, we can take back control of our bladder.
How successful is Bladder Training?
Bladder training can help improve symptoms in about 50% of women with urge urinary incontinence.
