Incontinence and Urinary Issues
Many people experience urinary incontinence, both men and women. Additionally, we also treat conditions such as Kidney Stones and BPH, which can cause issues with your urinary tract and bladder health.
This is actually a common issue for women more than men and can cause leaky bladders and overwhelming urges to urinate or false alarms.
The prostate always enlarges as you get older, but it may get to a point where it can cause issues urinating. It’s important to note BPH and prostate cancer are not related.
A urethral stricture is a scar occurring anywhere in the urethra. The scar narrows the urethra making it more difficult for urine to pass from the bladder out into the toilet. Symptoms can include painful urination, weakened stream, spraying of the urinary stream, inability to completely empty the bladder, and increased urinary frequency and urgency.
A Urinary tract infection, or a UTI, is an infection in the urinary system that is typically found in the bladder. Urinary tract infections are more often found in women than men.
Anywhere from 5% to 15% of men over the age of 60 are affected with male urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence in men can be quite embarrassing for some men and prevent them from enjoying a lot of activities that they enjoy.
Stress Urinary Incontinence generally occurs when your pelvic muscles are no longer strong enough to keep the opening from the bladder neck closed when you are under physical stress.
Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when muscles and ligaments in the pelvic floor are stretched or become too weak to hold the organs in the pelvis in their proper place.
