Many women who are seeking a bladder leakage treatment come across articles on pelvic floor health. Why? Because healthy, strong, pelvic floor muscles support the urethra and vagina, and help constrict the urethra and vagina.
The translation for all that? Your pelvic floor muscles help you hold in your pee.
So, strengthening your pelvic floor muscles helps with bladder leakage treatment.
Bladder Leakage is Common in Women
As we age, or after a woman gives birth, the pelvic floor muscles can weaken, resulting in minor to moderate bladder leakage. You may have experienced it: you’re out with friends at a restaurant, you laugh at a joke…and a little pee leaks out.
Or you’re walking your dog, you sneeze, and boom. Bladder leakage.
For many women this is a part of life. But for some, bladder leakage can be a real problem. Even if it’s a minor issue, do you really want to be wearing pads every day to protect yourself? Especially if you’re in menopause and are looking forward to leaving those messy pads behind.
Causes of Weakened Pelvic Floor Muscles
We’ve already mentioned childbirth and age – those are the two most common causes of weakened pelvic floor muscles in women. In addition, chronic coughing, constipation (straining when you’re using the bathroom), heavy lifting, high impact exercise, and being overweight can impact your pelvic floor health.
Signs That Your Pelvic Floor Muscles May Need Strengthening:
If you experience any of these symptoms, you may benefit from pelvic floor strengthening exercises for bladder leakage treatment and prevention:
- A feeling of heaviness or pressure in your pelvis.
- Bladder leakage or lack of bowel control.
- You leak a little pee when you laugh, cough or sneeze.
- You need to pee more often and more urgently.
Kegel Exercises: Recommended for Bladder Leakage Treatment
Your doctor may recommend Kegel exercises (or Kegels) to help maintain and improve your pelvic floor health. Kegels are a precise, targeted exercise designed to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
In fact, the Urology Care Foundation recommends Kegels to strengthen your pelvic floor, treat an overactive bladder, and even improve your sex life. They recommend working with a trained physiotherapist to make sure you are doing your Kegels correctly, working up to about 60 sets each day.
What If You Could Do Almost 12,000 Perfect Kegels in Just a Half-Hour?
Let’s face it. Kegels need to be done consistently correctly for you to benefit from them, and they can be hard to do.
What if you could do almost 11,800 Kegels in one 28-minute session? That’s the promise of Venus Wave Therapy at Venus Wave Therapy Pelvic Floor Clinic in Toronto.
Venus Wave Therapy is a revolutionary bladder leakage treatment. This non-invasive bladder leakage treatment works to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles by using high-intensity focused electromagnetic waves (HIFEM) to simulate and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
During your session, you simply sit in a chair, fully clothed, on our pelvic chair and let the Venus Waves do their work. You’ll feel a little tingling as the muscles contract, but otherwise you should be able to relax and catch up on your email or read a book in our comfortable treatment area.
