Sudden or unexpected loss of bladder control can have a profound impact on a person’s life. It can be the cause of emotional distress or self-consciousness for some people and limit involvement in certain types of activities or social events.
Urinary incontinence or bladder leaks, is a common health concern in Australia, with up to 40% of women suffering from it. If you suffer from loss of bladder control when you laugh, jump, sneeze or cough, or if you have the urge to go to the toilet so intense and sudden that you don’t always make it in time, you may be relieved to hear that there is a revolutionary non-surgical solution for urinary incontinence.
The Emsella Chair Treatment
Different Types of Incontinence
Urinary incontinence is an involuntary loss of bladder control. It can be caused by ageing, pregnancy, child birth, significant weight changes, menopause or surgery such as hysterectomy. There are three main types of incontinence.
When pressure is put on the bladder, such as when you jump, cough or sneeze, those with stress incontinence can experience urine leakage. Many suffering from this type of incontinence miss out on or restrict certain activities due to the concern of leakage.
As the name suggests, urge incontinence is when you experience sudden or intense urge to go to the toilet, often resulting in an involuntary loss of urine. People with urge incontinence often go to the toilet frequently during the night and day, and will typically always need to know where the nearest toilet is.
Overflow incontinence is the result of the bladder not emptying completely, leading to persistent dribbling of urine.
