Urinary incontinence is a common problem that affects more than a quarter of the population. There can be several causes for the condition. It can develop during and after pregnancy and is commonly connected to obesity. It’s also more common in women. As one gets older, the chances of it occurring tend to increase. Thankfully, we provide professional treatment for this condition at our office in San Juan.
The best treatment for the condition will depend on several factors, such as the patient’s age, their mental condition and their general health. There are muscles that help control urination which can be exercised. This is known as Kegel exercises or pelvic floor exercises, which help to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and the urinary sphincter.
There are several techniques for controlling urinary incontinence. All of these techniques can help to slowly gain control of the bladder. There are also some medications for urinary incontinence that are usually used in combination with exercises or other techniques.
The truth of the matter is that urinary incontinence treatment is not one-size-fits-all. The right treatment for you will ultimately be determined during a consultation at our office in San Juan. A few simple lifestyle changes can be done in combination with professional treatments to improve your symptoms. One of these changes includes reducing your caffeine intake. Caffeine is found in coffee, tea and cola and increases the amount of urine your body produces.
