Improving your health since 2000
A bladder management program allows you to empty your bladder at different times during the day. This program will help reduce your risks for accidents in public, and for bladder and kidney infections.
You may use one or more methods depending on the kind of bladder problems you have. Caregivers will work with you to develop a bladder management program that works for you.
An overfilled bladder can cause autonomic dysreflexia. This condition usually happens if your spinal cord injury is above T5-6. Your blood pressure becomes very high and can lead to stroke or death. Ask caregivers for more information about autonomic dysreflexia.
