Stress and Urge Urinary Incontinence By Lasting Impression - New Jersey

Stress and Urge Urinary Incontinence Specialist

Urinary incontinence, including stress and urge incontinence, are common health problems that, while statistically are more common in women, affect both men and women. Although it may be something you expect as you get older, urinary incontinence doesn’t have to be an inevitable condition you simply have to deal with.

What is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is a general medical term that describes a loss of bladder control, whether it’s a tiny dribble or a complete loss of your bladder. It’s usually a symptom of an underlying disease. There are several different types of urinary incontinence, but stress and urge urinary incontinence are the most common.

What is Stress Urinary Incontinence?

Stress urinary incontinence occurs when a physical activity, such as a sneeze or lifting weights, puts too much pressure on your bladder, causing you to lose urine. Weakened pelvic floor or urinary sphincter muscles are usually the underlying cause of stress urinary incontinence.

You may be more at risk of developing this type of urinary incontinence if you just had a baby or recently underwent prostate surgery. Carrying excess body weight and smoking may also increase your risk.

What is Urge Urinary Incontinence

Urge urinary incontinence, also known as overactive bladder (OAB), is an intense, uncontrollable urge to urinate that may cause you to lose control of your bladder before you’ve reached the bathroom.

Normally, you may feel an urge to urinate when your bladder is filled with about two cups of urine. Your bladder, signaled by you, contracts and pushes urine through your urethra. Urge incontinence occurs when your bladder contracts on it own, without your control.

You may be experiencing urge incontinence for a number of different reasons, including infection, nerve injury, or something blocking your bladder.

What Treatments are Available for Urinary Incontinence?

Treatment for urinary incontinence depends on the type and underlying cause. Dr. Galope may first focus treatment on fixing what may be causing your incontinence, then make recommendations for additional treatment. Behavioral changes are usually recommended first, such as:

  • Bladder training
  • Fully emptying your bladder during urination
  • Urinating on a schedule
  • Limiting liquids before bed

Pelvic floor therapy may also be recommended, which are targeted exercises that put you back in touch with your pelvic muscles and organs to help you regain control over function.

BTL EMSella™ is a popular and effective treatment for urinary incontinence when behavioral changes are not enough. BTL EMSella is intended to provide:

  • Entirely non-invasive electromagnetic stimulation of pelvic floor musculature 
  • Rehabilitation of weak pelvic muscles and restoration of neuromuscular control for the treatment of male and female urinary incontinence.

What is BTL EMSella?

BTL EMSella is a medical device, a chair that uses electromagnetic technology to stimulate pelvic floor muscles in an effort to strengthen them and address urinary incontinence (stress and urge incontinence). It will give you the equivalent of 11,000 Kegels exercise contractions during each 30-minute session. The treatment is appealing because:

  • it’s non-invasive
  • FDA-cleared
  • treats your entire pelvic floor, and 
  • it’s done while you’re fully clothed.

If conservative measures fail to improve control, more invasive treatments may be recommended such as Botox® or the use of bulking agents.
