hollister incorporatedDale Spencer has been a speaker for over 20 years, and has been encouraging individuals through humor and inspiration, to overcome their obstacles and triumph over life’s challenges, just as he did. On Access Health, Dale shared his personal story and explained how he deals with day to day issues that come with having a spinal cord injury, and he educated the viewers on the benefits of using a catheter.

For some people, day to day activities that most of us don’t think anything about, such as going to the bathroom, can be a more complex process for people who use urinary catheters. Many people suffer from urinary retention, which is the inability to empty the bladder, while others suffer from urinary incontinence, where the bladder empties without control.

Many of these issues occur after a spinal cord injury, but are also common among people who have Multiple Sclerosis, Spina Bifida or Parkinson’s disease. But, as Dale and Mary discussed in their conversation with Access Health, these issues can be better managed with the help of a catheter. The key is finding the right one for you.
