Urinary Incontinence in Women
At Appalachian Rejuvenation, our regenerative medical solutions can help women resolve the discomfort of urinary incontinence.
What causes urinary incontinence in women?
Urinary incontinence (UI) causes many women to involuntarily urinate. The weakness that pelvic floor muscles undergo with age can lead to UI, but incontinence is twice as likely to affect women for reasons outside of aging. Pregnancy, childbirth and the structural layout of the female urinary tract can account for cases of UI in women. Other notable causes include menopause, neurological injuries, strokes multiple sclerosis, and birth defects. Obesity can intensify incontinence by placing pressure on the abdomen.
How is UI typically treated?
Women typically have to rely on a combination of treatments for UI, so their main concern is finding an option that offers the best results with the least side effects. Traditionally, the safest options that women undergo are behavioral therapy regimens such as bladder training and strengthening pelvic muscles with Kegel exercises.
Medications for overactive bladder are often prescribed for UI but have side effects that amplify in severity after larger doses or prolonged use. Vaginal devices such as pessaries are used to treat UI as well but can lead to an increased risk of recurrent infections. For more invasive options, there are a few surgical procedures that can be done to realign the bladder for UI, but each comes with complications that can make urinating difficult.
What can Appalachian Rejuvenation do for you?
Appalachian Rejuvenation offers Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for urinary incontinence to help restore the muscles, nerves and pelvic structure for women impacted by UI. By using the regenerative qualities of PRP to tighten vaginal tissue and rebuild the body’s collagen, it helps women control their flow of urine in a simple yet effective procedure. The growth factors in PRP are efficient in reversing some of the changes in vaginal tissue that can lead to UI. Treatment is made even more effective in reducing the effects of UI when combined with exercises to strengthen the vaginal muscles.
What are the benefits of PRP treatment for UI?
Regenerative therapy is perfect for healing tissue damage and improving skin elasticity, texture and tone, giving women a safe, non-invasive way to beat UI. Because PRP is an effective way to revitalize tissue, it can also help rebuild the vaginal structure and allow women to regain control over their bladder functions. The symptoms of UI can hinder your quality of life, but you can restore sensitivity and function with PRP and put a stop to the emotional distress that UI has caused.
