Bladder Management

Bladder problems are common among people with MS and especially those with advanced disease. For families, bladder problems can seem overwhelming.

What is a neurogenic bladder?

Elimination of urine is dependent on intact pathways between the brain, spinal cord and bladder. Nerves and muscles of the urinary system work together to hold urine in the bladder and to release it when it needs to be emptied. In MS, the signals from the brain to these nerves may not work properly which results in poor bladder control, a condition called a neurogenic bladder.
