What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is characterized by involuntary leakage of urine from the bladder. This includes small amounts of urine that are dispelled with laughing or coughing, as well as the complete inability to control your bladder. Urinary incontinence is classified into two categories: stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Stress incontinence is the leakage of urine in small doses as a result of an increase abdominal pressure caused by other body reactions or activities, such as sneezing, laughing, lifting or coughing. Stress incontinence, in many cases, is due to a loss of support from the urethra. It is commonly observed as a consequence of damage to pelvic support structures that occur during child birth or trauma. Urge incontinence, also known as overactive bladder, is a dysfunction caused by uninhibited contractions of the detrusor muscle. When these contractions occur, the bladder leaks large amounts of urine and often does not give you sufficient warning to get to the bathroom in time. Both types of urinary incontinence are often related underlying medical conditions, however, in general, the condition is largely unreported to medical practitioners, limiting accurate statistics about the condition. Many individuals feel embarrassed or that solutions do not exist and therefore address the issue without inquiring further. You don’t have to wear “adult diapers” for the rest of your life platelet rich plasma can treat both types of urinary incontinence.
How Does PRP Treat Urinary Incontinence?
PRP, administered as the OShot®, has successfully treated and even reversed conditions of incontinence for thousands of women. The doctor injects PRP – sourced from your own blood – into the space around the urethra (the tube from which the urine flows out of the body). The injections triggers the platelets to release seven different growth factors that activate the unipotent stem cells to stimulate the tissues to regenerate and repair damaged. Most women experience some form of relief from urinary incontinence in a week or two following the O-Shot® and improvement continues over several weeks. Successful results include reduced or eliminated need for medications to treat urinary incontinence or a complete resolution of the condition.
Why Seek Treatment For Urinary Incontinence?
Symptoms of urinary incontinence is a progressive problem that gets worse over time unless treated. Urinary incontinence affects women of all ages, but the issue is most prevalent among older women – it is a classic condition of aging. Up to 35 percent of women over the age of 60 are estimated to have bladder control issues and more than 50 percent of all cases affect women rather than men. Incontinence can contribute to decreased self-confidence, depression and a lower quality of life. You may even find that you avoid activities and social settings for fear of embarrassing moments that you believe are beyond your control. Many women may even avoid sexual activity and exercise to avoid the risk of embarrassment. Studies have shown that there is a clear link between incontinence in women and depression. An article published in Obstetrics & Gynecology in 2005 surveyed nearly 6,000 women between the ages of 30 and 90. They found that in women experiencing incontinence, the likelihood to be diagnosed with depression increased threefold. Without treatment, you may find that multiple aspects of your life seemingly spiral out of control. Maintaining a healthy weight, routine physical activity and pelvic therapy has been shown to a positive impact on a woman’s bladder control. These efforts combined with PRP treatments can resolve your struggles with urinary incontinence – why wouldn’t you want treatment?
