How does Bladder Work?
The bladder is part of our urinary system, which removed by-products and other waste from your body. Most people produce three to four pints of urine each day, and use the toilet between four and eight times.
As your balder fills up, signals are sent to your brain to let you know when you need to pass urine.
Your bladder should then continue to store urine until your brain tells it that you are in an appropriate place to pass urine.
Problems can happen when the sensors which tell you your bladder is empty or full do not work properly or if your pelvic floor is weak or the nerves which communicate between your spinal cord and brain are damaged.
