Fear of incontinence – a dual task stressor to be treated

In a recent panel discussion, I was invited to speak about the intersection of fear and falls. This afforded the opportunity to discuss incontinence as a primary dual task distraction in mobility. Perhaps the most common distraction in a person’s life is internal and pervasive yet responsive to rehabilitation!

Bad news though – stigma. We feel embarrassed to get help. Be different. Ask about this with your patients. Be exceptional – offer task specific treatment.
