In young people and in all cases of light incontinence, the majority of doctors, in trying to avoid prescribing medication and surgery, recommend that patients train the pelvic floor and use Kegel exercises as a way of treating symptoms.

The pelvic floor is composed of layers of muscles and connective tissue, which extend from the pubic bone to the lumbar spine. If these muscles are healthy, they support the bladder. Kegel exercises focus on these specific muscles and can be done easily by all age groups.
