Incontinence and sport: Stay active despite bladder weakness

Incontinence, the involuntary loss of urine, is a widespread problem that affects millions of people.

Many sufferers therefore withdraw from sport for fear of an accident. But that doesn't have to be the case!

With the right sport and a few precautions, you can stay active even with incontinence and enjoy the positive effects of sport on your health.

In this blog post you will learn:

  • Why sport is possible even with incontinence
  • Which sports are suitable for people with incontinence
  • What tips you should consider when exercising with incontinence

Why sport is possible even with incontinence:

  • Strengthening the pelvic floor: Regular exercise can strengthen the pelvic floor, which supports the bladder and urethra and can therefore help control bladder function.
  • Improve overall health: Exercise promotes overall health and well-being, which can have a positive impact on the quality of life of people with incontinence.
  • Reduce stress: Stress can worsen incontinence symptoms. Exercise can help reduce stress and improve mental strength.

Suitable sports for people with incontinence:

  • Low-impact sports: Sports such as swimming, cycling, yoga or Pilates are good for people with incontinence because they do not place too much strain on the pelvic floor.
  • Pelvic floor training: Targeted pelvic floor training can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and improve bladder control.
  • Water sports: Water sports such as swimming or aqua aerobics are particularly suitable because the buoyancy of the water relieves the body and trains the pelvic floor muscles in a natural way.

Tips for exercising with incontinence:

  • Talk to your doctor: Before starting any new exercise program, you should talk to your doctor to make sure it is right for you.
  • Wear appropriate sportswear: Wear tight-fitting sportswear that provides good support for the pelvic floor.
  • Use incontinence products : Use incontinence products such as pads or liners to prevent involuntary urine loss.
  • Go to the toilet before exercising: Be sure to go to the toilet to empty your bladder before starting your workout.
  • Schedule bathroom breaks: Schedule regular bathroom breaks during exercise, even if you don't feel the urge to urinate.
  • Listen to your body: Pay attention to your body and take breaks if you feel pain or discomfort.

With the right preparation and a few tools, you can stay active and enjoy the benefits of exercise even with incontinence.

It is important that you consult a doctor if you have incontinence problems to determine the cause and receive the correct treatment.
