Study Suggests Meditation Could Help Incontinence

  • On June 4, 2009

New research has discovered that cognitive therapy such as meditation could be effective in managing urinary incontinence in women.

Scientists from Loyola University Health System in Chicago investigated the impact of deep-breathing and guided-imagery exercises on female participants’ ability to control their bladder without medication or surgery.

The study found that cognitive therapy is an effective management strategy for incontinence.

Dr. Aaron Michelfelder says: ‘The mind-body connection has proven to be particularly valuable for women suffering from incontinence.’

Cognitive therapy is effective with these women, because they are motivated to make a change and regain control over their body.’

The Loyola researchers say almost 25% of women experience a pelvic floor disorder, including incontinence, and cognitive therapy may play an important role in treating the condition.
