People with an overactive or weak bladder often have to rush off to find a bathroom because of an urge to urinate. Or they may gradually lose urine drop by drop before reaching a toilet. Bladder training can then help them to regain at least some control over their bladder.
The bladder muscle can be trained to stretch more so that the bladder is able to hold more urine. Bladder training also includes various behavioral treatment approaches and a particular drinking and voiding schedule (bathroom visit schedule).
