Below we answer if veteran health benefits help during treatment.

Why is incontinence so common among vets?
Urinary incontinence is common among vets across age groups. Moreover, it is higher among veterans younger than 55 than in non-veterans younger than 55. There are a number of contributing factors. Physical injuries such as traumatic brain injury, combat trauma or spinal cord injury are common causes of bladder incontinence. Other factors, such as PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder, weight, and prostate health may also play a role. No matter the cause of your incontinence, Men’s Liberty can help you get back to the business of living without worrying about embarrassing accidents.
