Common pelvic Dysfunctions
Urinary incontinence, involuntary loss of urine from the bladder, is a problem for many people. There are two main types of urinary incontinence; stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Faecal incontinence, is not often discussed, but still a common problem. Electrical stimulation through a vaginal/anal probe is a well-tolerated treatment for urge, stress, mixed and faecal incontinence and has shown positive results in improving bladder and bowel control.
Stress incontinence is urine leakage caused by increased abdominal pressure on the bladder, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy. Stress incontinence is the most common type of incontinence and is primarily affecting women. It usually occurs when the perineal and pelvic floor muscles are weakened, for example by pregnancy, childbirth or menopause.
Urge incontinence (Overactive Bladder)
Urge incontinence means a sudden, strong urge to urinate followed by an immediate bladder contraction, resulting in an involuntary leakage of urine. Both men and women can be affected, particularly the elderly. One reason for this condition can be a disruption in the part of the nervous system that controls the bladder.
