What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine from the bladder typically caused by weak or overactive bladder muscles.
There are different types of urinary leakage in women.
Stress incontinence – the involuntary loss of urine due to movements and activities that cause abdominal pressure such as coughing, sneezing and lifting (common in women)
Urge incontinence – often referred to as “overactive bladder,” the feeling of a strong and sudden need to urinate
Mixed incontinence – a combination of stress and urge incontinence
Overflow incontinence – the involuntary release of urine as a result of a full bladder
Functional incontinence – a physical problem keeps the person from making it to the restroom quickly enough
Total incontinence – continuous urinary leakage and total loss of control
Can incontinence be treated?
Fortunately, incontinence can be treated. Through the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) women have been successfully treated for urinary incontinence. Administered through the O-Shot®, PRP triggers the release of growth and healing factors that stimulate the tissue to rejuvenate.
Relief is typically experienced within 1-2 weeks following the O-Shot®, and improvement continues over several weeks. Many patients have even had success resulting in reduced or eliminated need for medications used for treatment for urinary incontinence. Some have reported that they have completely stopped leaking urine after the O-Shot®.
Is the O-Shot® right for me?
Urinary incontinence can affect females of all ages, especially aging women and those who have given birth. The O-Shot® is a revolutionary treatment that uses the patient’s own blood, through PRP, and is a nonsurgical approach to improving the quality of life of those suffering from this embarrassing and often socially debilitating condition.
