      Hi Heather and Deborah – Here is some additional information from my guest Krista Covell-Pierson OTR/L regarding your question:

      “I would recommend starting with a voiding schedule first. It will help people see if people are weak or having more urge type issues. If someone is weak and the OT feels confident that the exercises are the way to go I would start with 25 quick contractions of the PFM in the AM and PM, and ten long contractions (shoot for 10 seconds long) in the mid part of the day. The OT’s can adjust that to meet their clients where they are but that that’s the goal. Do it for three weeks and then see if the client is seeing any improvement. If incontinence gets worse I would stop the exercise program.”
