Could some of our treatments actually be cheating or bamboozling our seniors? Yes, I think so. Maybe not all individuals being treated for urinary incontinence, but quite a few. Let me explain.
Urinary incontinence or the inability to be able to defer the urgency to pass urine is a relatively common problem among men and women over the age of 60. It affects about one in five individuals in that age group.
And so, could we be cheating some of our seniors? You bet we are.
