Treatment for Urinary Incontinence
A plan for urinary incontinence treatment for men and women would consist of bladder training and pelvic floor exercises that can help minimize symptoms. Kegel exercises help to strengthen the urinary sphincter and pelvic floor muscles which control urination. At Dr. Gluck’s Wellness Center bladder training now includes, The Emsella chair. The Emsella chair is a new and innovative way to quickly and strongly improve pelvic floor muscles, to reduce or eliminate incontinence. It is non-invasive. Other forms of bladder training for urinary incontinence treatment include:
- Delaying going to the bathroom to assert control over the bladder urinating
- Waiting for a few minutes, and then urinating again scheduling set times throughout the day to use the bathroom
- InterStim treatment for incontinence is available near Boston at Dr. Gluck’s Wellness Center for both overactive bladder and urinary retention.
