A 47-year-old female patient who experienced urinary urgency after having stretching exercises of her legs is presented. Stretching of the legs are thought to be responsible for conus medullaris tethering which in turn causes urinary complaints. What is interesting in this case is that her complaints about urinary urgency stopped as she quit stretching exercise movements of her legs. There are some examples of such cases in the literature. The urinary urgency after stretching exercises warned us to investigate this patient in regard to tethered conus medullaris. Tethering of the conus medullaris can be temporary and can cause reversible functional disorders of the bladder. Incontinence at any age should be evaluated cautiously as it could be a sign of an underlying important developmental failure.
