Urinary incontinence treatment
The modern rhythm of life requires you to always be at your best, which is very difficult to do if you feel embarrassed due to urinary incontinence. This problem can be encountered at any age. It manifests itself in the constant need to go to the toilet, the feeling of wet laundry at the most inopportune moment and the fear that others might hear the smell.
It is women, due to their anatomical structure, that are susceptible to this disease. But this does not mean that you just have to accept this state of affairs. Clinic Medicina JSC offers effective treatment of urgency and stress urinary incontinence.
Who needs urinary incontinence treatment and when
Until recently, it was believed that urinary incontinence is a problem in the elderly. We can say for sure that because of the anatomical features, she worries women more often than men. However, there are a number of diseases in which incontinence manifests itself as a side effect. Even taking certain medications can also trigger a sudden emptying of the bladder.
In reality, young women are also not immune to the problem. It often occurs after childbirth, especially difficult. If the fetus is too large, the pelvic floor muscles are overstretched or torn. As a result, specialist help will be needed to restore normal bladder function.
Whatever underlies the development of the disease, JSC "Medicine" (the clinic of Academician Roytberg) will certainly help to establish a normal life for each patient. For some, a lifestyle change will be enough, for others, drug therapy or surgery will help. The method will be chosen based on the individual indications of each woman.
What you need to know about incontinence: indications and contraindications
Incontinence is a condition in which the bladder cannot be controlled. However, there are several reasons for its failure. There are three types of incontinence in total:
In the first case, there is an involuntary leakage of a portion of urine during any action that increases intra-abdominal pressure. It is enough to cough a little, run or laugh for the discomfort to manifest itself in full. A characteristic feature is the complete absence of the urge to urinate. This is due to a decrease in the tone of the pelvic floor with the subsequent prolapse of the internal organs. Any stressful situation becomes a trigger.
People with irritable bladder syndrome have to constantly find out where the nearest toilet is. Since they have such a strong urge that it is simply impossible to reach him. He received the name "imperative" or "imperative". In this case, any stimuli from the outside become provoking factors. The bladder becomes so overactive that it can respond to the slightest stimulus.
Whatever the reason for the disease, you do not need to try to hide it and suffer from uncomfortable sensations. The sooner you start treatment, the sooner you can return to your usual lifestyle.
