This weeks topic is nonsurgical treatments for urinary incontinence . Urinary incontinence simply means ones inability to hold our urine resulting in accidental spillage due to variety of causes. Regardless of the cause there appears to be a weakness of muscle called the sphincter that separates the bladder from bladder outlet and the muscles that make up the pelvis . It appears to be most common in women more then men. It is associated with Obesity, smoking,stress, coughing, aging process and after pregnancy. Treatments vary from first eliminating underlying risk factors such as losing weight, stop smoking to kegel exercises that strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. There are also prescription medications such as anticholinergics, topical hormones, and even certain types of antidepressants. In other cases certain medical devices such as catheters, pessary are used with surgery in extreme cases. In of these modalities used alone or in combination often have variable results.
An alternative treatment option that I would like to recommend is the O shot that uses the platelet rich plasma harvested from the patient own blood separating highly concentrated growth cells that are then reinjected strategically into certain areas of body.
Because of its rejuvenating properties, the Oshot drastically reduces the effects of urinary of incontinence and also improves sexual intimacy by improving the female orgasmic experience.
In stress incontinence, the sphincter and pelvic muscles, which support the bladder and urethra, are weakened. The sphincter is not able to prevent urine from flowing when pressure is placed on the abdomen (such as when you cough, laugh, or lift something heavy). O-Shot works to rejuvenates muscle tissue, increases circulation, promote vasculature and strengthen overall sphincter and urethra.
For more information or to see if the O shot is for you, please call our office for complimentary consultation .
