Urinary incontinence and positional changes of the female genitalia
Any involuntary leakage of urine is defined as urinary incontinence. An estimated 35–37% of women over the age of 50 suffer from urinary incontinence. There are three types of urinary incontinence. Urge incontinence is a common type of incontinence. Patients experience a sudden and insuppressible urge to empty their bladder and there is an involuntary leakage of urine before they reach the toilet. This is particularly pronounced at night. Possible causes include frequently recurring infections and side effects of medication, internal diseases or hormone deficiencies.
Precise questioning during consultation and keeping a micturition log can often provide the first indications of the form of incontinence you have. A detailed examination, including an ultrasound of the pelvic floor, is also very important for reaching a diagnosis. Many mild forms of urinary incontinence can be effectively treated. Strengthening the musculature through targeted pelvic floor training is particularly important.
The Emsella chair allows us to do so non-invasively. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the therapy or would like to schedule a consultation.
