For Pelvic Floor

Up to 70% of women worldwide suffer from urinary incontinence. Men are also susceptible to this disease. Modern medicine has successfully corrected the loss of bladder control. The method of treatment depends on the stage of the disease and the characteristics of the organism. Non-invasive intervention allows for success in the early stages of incontinence. In advanced cases, a combination of several treatment methods will help eliminate the problem.

Types of incontinence

Loss of bladder control can be caused by a variety of reasons. There are three types of incontinence:

  • stressful;
  • urge;
  • mixed.

In stress incontinence, loss of control occurs due to dysfunction of the urethral sphincter. Weakened muscles do not cope well with intra-abdominal pressure. As a result, urine leaks during laughing, coughing, sneezing, physical exertion.

This is the most common type of incontinence. It often develops in women during pregnancy or after childbirth. It can be caused by age-related changes, transferred operations.

Irresistible urge to urinate. Urge incontinence occurs due to the high reactivity of the bladder. Strong urge occurs when the amount of urine is small. The woman cannot contain herself. Often the urge to urinate comes on suddenly.

The same factors as stress incontinence can cause this condition. The likelihood of incontinence is influenced by heredity, overweight, infections, and neurological diseases. Often, forms of urinary incontinence are combined. Taking certain medications can make the condition worse. Surgeries are done in extreme cases but Pelvic health physical therapy also known as Pelvic health PT can give you comforting and lasting relief.

Diagnosis and treatment

Medicine has been able to treat incontinence for a long time. In recent years, non-invasive methods of treatment have been actively used. These include training and training your pelvic floor muscles, as well as electrical stimulation. Treatment without surgery is highly effective. For maximum results, do not delay your doctor's appointment.

Developing an effective treatment plan is based on finding out the causes of incontinence. The patient needs a comprehensive examination. The doctor conducts a conversation with the patient and examination to clarify the history. The PAD test is used to assess the severity of the disease. Analyzes, tests, ultrasound and MRI are prescribed. Based on this data, the doctor develops a treatment plan.

Therapy begins with the simplest but most effective methods. The first is lifestyle correction and special exercises. The patient needs to reduce the amount of coffee and tea, quit smoking, and normalize weight. Try to create and maintain a urinary routine. A special set of exercises is used to train the muscles of the pelvic floor.

The basis of gymnastics in the treatment of urinary incontinence in women is Kegel exercises. They help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. A set of exercises with biological feedback has been developed. During exercise, a special apparatus registers muscle tone. It is also used for electrical stimulation.

The electrostimulation method is based on the use of microprocessor and computer technology to influence muscles and nerves in a certain range of values. An electrical signal is transmitted from the device to the patient's body and causes the normalization of metabolic processes, muscle contraction, and improvement of regulatory functions. This allows the patient to regain control over urination.
