Nonsurgical solution for Urinary Incontinence

Original Article By Greenwich Medical Spa Staff. Ladies, have you ever been to the gym and the instructor asks you to do jumping jack; and when you start, all of a sudden you feel a tad wet down there and you find yourself running to the bathroom and never doing jumping jacks again. Or do you find yourself crossing your legs when you sneeze or laugh? What you are experiencing is called urinary incontinence and more than 13 million people in the United States experience it as well. You are not alone, uncontrolled urine or bladder leakage is a common and stressful issue. Something as simple as coughing, sneezing, lifting, or even running may cause you to leak uncontrollably. We understand how this can impact an individuals’ quality of life in a severe way.

Even though it may occur more often as you age, or after child birth, urinary incontinence isn’t an inescapable consequence of aging. There are solutions to this life stressing issue! Many individuals experience minor leaks, however others may lose moderate amounts of urine more frequently.

Urinary Incontinence treatments

There are many at home lifestyle remedies you can begin doing to have slight improvement with this issue, like Kegel exercises where the pelvic region is contracted and then released to enhance the pelvic muscles.

If you’ve found no relief from any at home remedies, there are other surgical and non-surgical options.

A surgical option for urinary incontinence is Sling Surgery. This is where the surgeon creates a sling out of mesh or human tissue and puts it beneath the tube where urine flows through, called the urethra. The sling lifts and supports the urethra and the neck of your bladder essentially helping to prevent leaks.

A great non-surgical urinary incontinence solution is called ThermiVa. ThermiVa is proven to reduce urinary leaking and urge and when used with pelvic floor physical therapy many women are able to avoid going under the knife for various bladder surgeries.

ThermiVa in Greenwich, requires no downtime, gently heating the vaginal tissue with radiofrequency energy. The body increases collagen production in the treated areas, leading to stronger collagen bands and tightened skin inside and out.

If you find that urinary incontinence affects your daily activities, don’t hesitate to see a specialist to find out more information or contact the Greenwich Medical Spa to learn more about Thermiva.
