Benefits of urinary incontinence treatment

Urinary incontinence is the uncontrolled leakage of urine. Many women experience temporary urinary incontinence as a result of too much alcohol, constipation or a urinary tract infection. In many cases, this condition is easy to treat if the patient seeks proper medical treatment from a professional. However, persistent urinary incontinence is a sign of a more complicated issue that requires more extensive treatment.

Fortunately, there are a variety of effective treatment options available. Benefits of our urinary incontinence treatment for women include:

  • Bladder control
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Improved function
  • Vaginal tightness
  • Decreased risk of injury

Depending on the type of treatment provided, many women see increased self-esteem and are often able to function better each day. If the issue is due to vaginal laxity, we can consider treating it with vaginal rejuvenation to increase the potential benefit of vaginal tightness. Regardless, most patients experience an ability to control their bladder after treatment more efficiently.

Treating urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a relatively broad term and has a variety of potential causes. The exact form of treatment is mainly dependent upon the purpose of the incontinence. If the issue is due to a temporary health complication, such as a urinary tract infection or constipation, then treatment is relatively simple.

Treatment for chronic urinary incontinence that persists for an extended period may require one of the following treatment options:

  • Vaginal rejuvenation
  • Anticholinergics
  • Protective garments
  • Muscle exercises

There are also a variety of behavioral and lifestyle changes that may help with persistent urinary incontinence. These include bladder training, double voiding and the prevention of skin irritation. Each patient is unique and the treatment process is different for everyone. Under the direction of Margaret MH Goodman, MD, FACOG, the team at Goodman Medical Spa will help to find the right solution for each patient.

When to consider urinary incontinence treatment

If frequent urinary leakage results from coughing or sneezing, then it is crucial to seek professional treatment. In some cases, certain events in a women’s life increase the risk of developing urinary incontinence. For women, in particular, the condition often exists after childbirth or anytime vaginal laxity takes place.

The symptoms might also present itself after menopause, a hysterectomy or as a natural result of the aging process. Some instances of urinary incontinence might be successfully treated and prevented through lifestyle changes. We encourage patients to do their best to maintain a healthy weight, avoid irritants such as caffeine and alcohol, along with eating a balanced diet that includes fiber.

We can go over the specifics of these changes at our medical spa and women’s health clinic before finding ones that will be most effective for the patient. If lifestyle and dietary changes are not enough, be sure to consult with us. We can determine the exact cause of the leakage and recommend effective treatment. Patients can also schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure the treatment is having the proper effect or consider other options.
