Beat Stress Incontinence!
There are many types of incontinence and one of the most common that people have is stress incontinence. It is not related to psychological stress,but this type of incontinence happens when coughing, laughing, sneezing, sprinting, or heavy lifting cause pressure (stress) on your bladder, leading you to leak urine. If you have been experiencing this, it is best to have yourself checked because although incontinence is not a disease itself, it can be an indication of an underlying one.
Incontinence can be treated in a variety of ways. One of the common misunderstandings is that surgery is the first course of action. This, understandably, can deter many people from getting treatment. The truth is surgery is almost always a last resort. Before deciding on surgery, there are a number of options to consider. Here are easy practical ways to treat stress incontinence.
Say NO To Smoking.
You might be thinking, what does smoking have to do with incontinence? Well smoking isn’t related to incontinence but the coughing that results from it can cause pressure to the bladder that triggers stress incontinence. So it is better to stop smoking for the benefit of your general health as well.
It might sound odd that this is one way to treat incontinence, but drinking less fluid can cause urine to be more concentrated. It can irritate the bladder more causing it to be active. It might be better to intake fluid as you normally would and still drink especially if you feel thirsty. Balance is key in this because if you intake too much liqui, it can also increase the urgency to go to the bathroom.
Keep A Healthy Diet.
Another cause of weakened pelvic muscles is being overweight. So another helpful treatment is to watch your weight. Eat a healthy and balanced diet with less calories!
If you are still able to move around and are capable of doing minimal exercises, there is an exercise that can help improve your bladder. It is called the Kegel exercise. According to studies, up to 70% of mild-to-moderate cases of incontinence can be alleviated or even cured with this method. However, you will need to perform the proper pelvic floor (Kegel) exercises on a consistent basis for three to six months for your condition to improve. It is never too late to start!
