Sports With Incontinence

Many people call us and ask us is it possible to play sports while being incontinent. 

Answer to this question is yes, it is possible to play sports while being incontinent.

There are many sports that are suitable for people with incontinence. Some types of sports are more suitable than other with bladder weakness. Sports can even have a positive effect and relieve or prevent symptoms. 

Physical activity increases not only well-being but also helps to shed unwanted pounds. Less weight on the scales means less pressure on the bladder. 

Some physical activities that strengthen and relieve the pelvic floor naturally include: 

 - Gymnastics 

- Moderate jogging, rapid walking 

- Pilates 

- Cycling 

- Swimming 

- Yoga 

- Hiking 

- Speed Walking 

Less beneficial for bladder weakness are high impact sports with abrupt movements that additionally stress the pelvic floor and the bladder. 

The include ball goes such as basketball, football, volleyball as well as athletics, tennis and trampolining as they cause extra pressure on the pelvic floor muscles, which hold all of the internal organs that control your bladder and bowels in place. This can lead to incontinence and bladder accidents for people of all age groups. 

There are some tips that can help you manage and treat the issue of bladder leaks during exercise. These include: 

- Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles 

- Using a pessary 

- Using incontinence pads 

- Going easy on fluids
