Millions of Canadian women experience urinary incontinence that can adversely affect their quality of life. Through the LOVE YOU program, Shoppers Drug Mart’s investment in the London Health Sciences Centre’s Urogynecology Clinic is designed to improve women’s quality of life.
A woman’s access to education and treatment are paramount, including techniques to strengthen the pelvic floor. Health professionals have known for a long time that incontinence, despite stigma, is NOT an inevitable part of aging. There is usually an underlying physical cause. Early diagnosis and treatment can greatly reduce or even eliminate the problem. Even when incontinence has been a problem for a long time there is still the possibility for successful treatment.
