What that means is that all the muscles that make up the pelvic floor also influence how much incontinence you actually have, so with that said kegel exercises which is the strengthening of those muscles will absolutely help. Now the way to do kegel exercises is very very important, you just can't do one, it's kind of like doing repetitions, I usually tell my patients you do 10 a set of 10 in the morning, a set of 10 at lunch time and another set of 10 at dinner.
