The muscles that control bladder functions weaken with age, which can lead to urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is a broad term for any incontinence caused by a problem with the bladder or the urethra, the tube that transports urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. The majority of incontinence is caused by weak muscles, also known as bladder weakness. Going to the bathroom is a completely routine and stress-free experience for most people, but for people with urinary incontinence, it can be stressful and even embarrassing. Fortunately, there are treatments that can help increase bladder muscle strength, reduce incontinence symptoms, and even cure the condition entirely.
If you are experiencing leakage, VSPOT has a life-changing, noninvasive treatment called BTL Emsella, which can help you regain your confidence and reduce your chances of having a “accident.”
What causes urinary incontinence?
You have stress incontinence if urine leaks out when you exercise, laugh, sneeze, or cough. These actions put pressure on your bladder, which causes some urine to leak. This is extremely common, and you are not alone in what you are experiencing.
What Exactly Is Urinary Incontinence?
The loss of bladder control is referred to as urinary incontinence. Involuntary or uncontrollable bladder leaks result from this lack of control. Urinary incontinence is classified into five types:
- Urge incontinence
- Stress incontinence
- Mixed incontinence
- Overflow incontinence
- Functional (neurogenic) incontinence
