There are muscles at the opening of the bladder. These usually form a seal so urine does not leak out. If these muscles are weak (often after the strain of childbirth, or post menopause when the tissue becomes weaker due to the lack of oestrogen) the seal can leak.

Treatment for stress incontinence may involve strengthening the muscles that support your bladder neck. Our experienced physiotherapists can show you a range pelvic floor exercises.

Surgery may be an option after you have tried other treatments.There are procedures to strengthen and lift the muscles that support your bladder neck. There is also a synthetic sling can be inserted to help support your bladder neck and stop urine leakage.
