Article Review:

            Through this health news article, urinary incontinence is discussed. It is estimated that over 25 million individuals in the United States are affected by urinary incontinence. Women are affected more than men, and while urinary incontinence is not life-threatening, it can affect overall well-being and have health implications.

Incontinence has been linked with increased risks of falls and hip fractures. However, through this article, it is asserted that incontinence is not a normal part of the aging process. Incontinence has been found to affect women over the age of 50 most commonly, however, most individuals think that surgery is the only way to address the issue. There are a wide variety of options that can help address incontinence, including physical therapy, vaginal inserts, nerve stimulation, nerve modulation, and finally, surgical options.
