Bladder issues, such as incontinence, can be a common symptom in people with neuromuscular disorders. There are a number of reasons why the bladder might be affected. The common causes of bladder issues are stress incontinence, urge incontinence and potentially mixed incontinence. Treating and managing bladder incontinence can include encouraging weight loss, pelvic floor exercises and advice on toileting issues. It may be that the issue is not a problem with toileting because of incontinence but because of the inability to sit down and most importantly stand up after using the toilet. In this case therapists can offer advice on portable devices for both men and women to use the toilet without the need to sit down. These include devices such as she-wee or similar.
