Treating the Embarrassing Issue of Incontinence

Everyone wants to age gracefully but unfortunately, some aspects of get-ting older are just not glamorous in most cases.

This is particularly true in the case of incontinence which is sadly one of the more common ailments that you’ll need to address as you get older. At this point, we’re getting into the more ‘specific’ problems that only some people will deal with but once you’ve generally improved your health and wellbeing, these kinds of problems are what remain.

Incontinence can come in numerous forms but the most common associated with age is ‘stress incontinence’. This means that you’re more likely to release a little urine when laughing, coughing, sneezing or straining during exercise. It can be very embarrassing in some cases and may even result in having to cut a social engagement short. This embarrassment may even lead some people to avoid visiting a doctor to address their problem. This is nothing to be ashamed of.

In fact, it is actually highly common and affects a large number of people as they get older. And in fact, most female athletes are expected to encounter some degree of stress incontinence if they are performing at a high level. The good news though, is that it is very often avoidable depending on your specific cause. What Causes Incontinence in Old Age The most common cause of stress incontinence is that the pelvic floor muscles become too weak.

This then means that anything that would cause abdominal pressure can then place pressure on the bladder, causing the urethra (supported by the fascia of the pelvic floor) to drop down and triggering urination. In women, weakness in the pelvic floor muscles can be a result of pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, the menstrual cycle or reduced estrogen levels (resulting in reduced muscular pressure).

The problem is less common for men and is more likely the result of post-surgical complication following something like a prostatectomy. There are other causes of incontinence in men, such as benign prostate hyperplasia, so it’s worth visiting your doctor if you are suffering from it.

How To Treat It The most common form of treatment for stress incontinence is exercise. You can exercise the pelvic floor muscles by using kegel exercises (named after Dr. Arnold Kegel). To perform these, all you need to do is contract, hold and then release the pelvic floor muscle – it’s so easy you can even do it in bed! The problem for most people is going to be identifying which muscles to contract.

The way that it is usually recommended to find this out, is to stop yourself ‘mid flow’ when next urinating. You should notice that this uses certain muscles and these are the muscles that you’re going to target with the exercises. Smoking can make incontinence worse, as can being overweight so these are two things to address. It’s also a good idea to avoid any diuretics which might include things like caffeine and alcohol.

If none of this works, then you should seek medical attention and your doc-tor might recommend surgery. There are various different options available in this case, which include bladder repositioning. Peri/trans urethral injections meanwhile involve injecting materials into the urethra to give it a more fixed and rigid texture. Some medications like Alpha-1 adrenergic receptor stimulators mediate the release of urine ironic seeing as these are the stress receptors!Finally, consider management techniques in the interim – avoid drinking lots of water before going out and try to empty your bladder before events.

You can also consider the use of liners and other products to help absorb any urine.
