Behavioral Versus Drug Treatment for Overactive Bladder in Men

 

“What exercises are best to stop urine leaking?”

Friday, January 6th, 2012

“Leaking”, also known as stress urinary incontinence is caused by over stretching or weakening of the pelvic floor muscles.  This can be caused by child birth, repeated heavy lifting, ligament laxity, or pelvic surgery.

Alleviate “leaking” by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles:

  1. Long Contractions – to give your muscles strength and endurance.
  2. Quick Contractions – to allow you to activate your muscles quickly when you sneeze, laugh or lift.
  3. Integrate Pelvic Floor Activation into Daily Activity – this will become an automatic reaction after training and is effective for long term maintenance.
  4. Learn to Relax your Pelvic Floor Muscles to Avoid Overuse – to avoid leaking we often try to hold the pelvic floor muscles all the time.  Like any overuse injury this results in weakening of the muscles. Proper strengthening of the pelvic floor will give you the confidence to know you can activate your pelvic floor when needed and let the muscles relax the rest of the time.

Overactive Bladder and Body Mass

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

There are many reasons to maintain a healthy weight; for your heart, your blood pressure, and to prevent diabetes.  But do you know that excess body weight can even effect your bladder?

Studies have shown a relationship between body mass in women and the incidence of overactive bladder and urinary incontinence.  Carrying extra weight in your mid-section and around the organs places additional downward pressure on the bladder and pelvic floor.  This may cause weakening of the pelvic floor over time and can result in loss of bladder control.

To take a load off your bladder, trim those extra pounds (postpartum & mid-life)  and strengthen your pelvic floor with The Bladder Cure progressive strengthening program. Order today!
