How to Solve Incontinence
It’s the problem so many of us have, but no one wants to talk about. You could devote your life to Kegels and still not make a difference. You don’t want surgery. Is there anything else that works?
You can overcome urinary incontinence without surgery thanks to the FDA-approved technology offered through Urology Care, P.C. We use electrical muscle stimulation and neuromuscular re-education techniques to rehabilitate pelvic floor muscles. You get results that make you feel confident so you can enjoy your favorite activities again.
Why it Works
We use the FDA- approved VTone device to treat both stress incontinence and urge incontinence in women, as well as mixed incontinence. This device directs intravaginal electrical muscle stimulation straight to weakened or overstretched muscles in the pelvic floor.
The technology produces deep muscle contractions that cannot be achieved through regular Kegel exercises, strengthening and re-educating muscles so they can perform as they did before changing hormones, childbirth, and other life events that damaged muscle performance. With treatment, your pelvic floor muscles can function like they’re supposed to. You can stop spending so much time worrying about incontinence and enjoy a better quality of life.
Relief Without the Pain and Prolonged Recovery Time of Surgery
Surgical options provide results for some women, but these options are invasive procedures that require patients to undergo extensive downtime after surgery where daily activities must be monitored and curtailed. Recovery can be painful and prolonged.
In office treatments with VTone technology offer a comfortable alternative that fits seamlessly into your lifestyle. You can even come in on your lunch break.
Our providers will determine the schedule to meet your needs. Most patients find that after a few weeks of regular treatments, they only need periodic booster treatments to maintain the enhanced muscle tone and sensation in the pelvic floor.
Why Kegels Alone Are Not Enough
Changes in hormone levels, stresses from pregnancy and childbirth, and other physical factors cause most women to lose strength, elasticity, and sensitivity in the muscles of the critical pelvic floor. These changes lead to bladder leakage, decreased pleasure during sex, and pelvic floor weakness.
Kegel exercises, which involve contracting and relaxing the interior pelvic floor muscles, can help prevent or improve symptoms of incontinence if performed correctly and consistently. However, many women find they are unable to maintain muscle focus for long enough to gain the benefit they need from these exercises.
Treatment with electrical muscle stimulation provides the equivalent of a super-charged Kegel workout that would be impossible to perform on your own. You get maximum benefits in a short amount of time in a relaxed, comfortable setting.
