Female Urinary Incontinence Treatment Near Miami, FL

Surgical & Non-Surgical Treatment Options for Urinary Incontinence

Did you know approximately 17 million women in the U.S. encounter urinary incontinence in their lifetime? It is a very common condition that can have a big impact in your everyday life. The good news is there are a number of different treatment options for incontinence and chances are one of them will work for you.

Urinary incontinence is a condition where there is a loss of control in managing the flow of urine from your body. This condition can occur in women between the ages of 18 and 60 and beyond and is usually a result of the urethra not being closed tightly to keep urine in the bladder.
Symptoms vary from:

  • an inability to prevent leaking urine when exercising or other involuntary actions such as coughing or sneezing
  • an overwhelming urge to urinate that often causes them to urinate before getting to a bathroom.
Behavior therapies

Behavior modification is used to train one’s bladder and sphincter muscles by decreasing fluid intake and by prompting or scheduling voiding.

Pelvic Muscle Exercises

Called Kegel exercises, these exercises commonly are intended to strengthen weak muscles surrounding the bladder.

Catheter

These tubes are inserted into the urethra to collect urine into an external drainage bag. These are generally left in place 24 hours a day.

External Devices

Called a Pessary, this device is designed to apply pressure to help reposition the urethra permitting it to close tightly. It features a stiff ring that is inserted into the vagina to exert pressure press against the wall of the vagina and urethra.

Bulking Injections

Bulking agents such as collagen are injected directly into the urethral lining to firm and bulk up the urethral lining so that the urethra can close more tightly.

Pelvic floor therapy addresses the pelvic floor muscles which may have become weak, tight, or spastic due to disuse, surgery, or trauma. Each individual patient is evaluated, and a plan of care developed for her specific needs and goals. Sessions are painless and typically performed on a weekly basis during a period of eight to twelve weeks.
