Incontinence

Urinary incontinence, the involuntary leakage of urine, is a fairly common problem that affects many people.

Risk of incontinence grows with age, but a few contributing factors might be:

  • stress
  • obesity
  • smoking
  • childbirth
  • menopause

A treatment plan of bladder training and pelvic floor exercises 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 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

Dr. Gluck’s Wellness Center offers InterStim treatment for both overactive bladder and urinary retention.
