Acupuncture for Incontinence
This ancient and traditional Chinese therapy can help with unitary incontinence, especially in women. The purpose of acupuncture is to balance the energy inside your body called Chi so you remain healthy. It involves the use of tiny metallic needles being inserted into the skin and can be manually moved or electrically manipulated. Acupuncture can help with incontinence by decreasing the frequency of urination and the urge to urination and can improve pelvic floor muscles.
Physical Therapy for Incontinence
A physical therapist will give you certain exercises to do to strengthen and tone your pelvic muscles. These exercises are called kegel exercises and usually show an improvement of within six to twelve weeks. Along with these exercises your physical therapist might suggest losing weight as excess stomach fat puts pressure on your bladder and pelvic muscle, contributing to incontinence.
Supplements for Incontinence
Adding extra nutrients to your diet can help to prevent and improve incontinence. One of these includes magnesium which is important for muscle and nerve function and is also believed to reduce muscle spasms in the bladder, as well as letting the bladder empty completely. Another is vitamin D which improves your calcium intake and bone health and can reduce incontinence.
