The abnormality of the lumbar spine is probably not a factor in your incontinence. This is because the spine disorders that cause urinary incontinence do so through the mechanism of nerve damage to the nerves supplying the bladder.
If the urinary incontinence has occurred recently, it is likely to be the result of a weakening of the pelvic muscle. This can occur with menopause or as part of aging.
Treatment other than surgical correction includes medical interventions that focus on strengthening the pelvic floor. Measures you can practise yourself include kegel's exercises/
