What Exactly is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is urine leakage, and it ranges from mild to severe. In mild cases, small leaks occur from stresses like laughing, lifting of heavy objects, coughing, sneezing, jumping, and exercise. Severe cases can involve total involuntary emptying of the bladder. As one can imagine, this can prove to be a burden on daily life in any context.

Living with Incontinence

For those who have to live with incontinence, it can be dreadful and a huge source of stress. Dr. Shakiba has a long history of helping patients with these issues, and his practice offers a range of different approaches to manage urinary incontinence. The aim is to test the bladder’s function and strength, and each situation is individually examined to determine a care plan.

Procedures such as PTNS (post tibial nerve stimulation) and biofeedback have been used with great results. Post tibial nerve stimulation involves a procedure that serves to stimulate the tibial nerve. This procedure has been shown to offer support to the bladder by stimulating it to react normally. Biofeedback is sometimes used to determine which muscles are being used during kegel exercises and to teach patients how to properly use their pelvic muscles. In more severe cases, surgery may be an option with the insertion of a transobturator sling, which has been shown to greatly assist with incontinence.
