Physical Therapy for Neurogenic Bladder

Physical Therapy for Neurogenic Bladder

With a Neurogenic Bladder, muscles and nerves are not working together to hold and release urine at the appropriate times. Nerves move messages back and forth between the brain and the bladder, telling muscles to tighten or release. Nerve damage can be caused by various types of trauma or disease processes that harm the nervous system. Nerve damage may weaken the sphincter muscle, which is the pelvic muscle that holds urine in and loosens when you are trying to release urine. Muscles that Kegel exercises target are attached to the pelvic bone and act like a hammock, holding in the pelvic organs. To find these muscles you can try stopping and starting urine flow. Kegel exercises are performed to strengthen muscles of the urethra, bladder, uterus and rectum.


(1) Extensive interview with the patient regarding symptoms, chief complains and functional limitation
(2) Neuro Musculo Skeletal examination (muscle strength, sensation, tone around pelvic region).

General objectives of Physical Therapy:

Upsurge strength in pelvic girdle muscle, Improve physical and psychological aspect for patient using Kegal Exercises, to relieve incontinence using Biofeedback machine & Electrical Stimulation.

Physical-psychological training also called timed voiding, can reduce problems caused by overactive bladder. It combines Will- power and exercise
