What is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is a common condition that affects people of all ages and can have a significant impact on Calgarians. It is the involuntary leakage of urine that can be caused by factors such as pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and certain medical conditions.

Fortunately, there are a variety of treatment and management options available for urinary incontinence, some of which don’t require medication or surgery. Book a consult at our Calgary Pelvic Floor Clinic to discuss the best treatment for you.

Solutions for Urinary Incontinence

Divergent Health specializes in creating personalized treatment plans for urinary incontinence. We’ll work with you to understand the cause and develop a strategy for regaining confidence and control.

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Physical therapy can be a crucial component of treating urinary incontinence. This specialized form of physical therapy focuses on the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue that support the pelvic organs. These muscles can become weakened or damaged due to pregnancy, childbirth, surgery, or other factors, leading to incontinence, pelvic pain and prolapse. Divergent’s physiotherapists are highly trained in pelvic floor rehabilitation and use a combination of exercises, manual therapy, and biofeedback to help strengthen and improve the function of the pelvic floor muscles.

EMSELLA Non-invasive Treatment

EMSELLA Non-invasive Treatment

EMSELLA is an innovative treatment for urinary incontinence. This innovative technology uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles, resulting in increased muscle tone and improved bladder control. The treatment is non-surgical, pain-free and requires no downtime, making it a convenient option for those who want to improve their urinary incontinence without the risks and recovery time associated with surgery. EMSELLA is performed fully clothed in the comfort of our Pelvic Floor Clinic. A typical treatment lasts only 30 minutes, and many patients experience significant improvement after just one session!

Lifestyle Changes

Lifestyle Changes

Making simple adjustments to your daily routine in Calgary, such as maintaining a healthy weight or reducing your consumption of caffeine and alcohol, can contribute to improved bladder control. Being overweight or obese can put additional pressure on the bladder and pelvic floor muscles, leading to incontinence. Our physiotherapists and kinesiologists possess specialized education in exercise and pelvic floor health. Our expert team can empower you with a personalized exercise and lifestyle plan for optimal success.

Types of Urinary Incontinence

Understanding the different types of urinary incontinence is crucial for effective diagnosis and treatment. Each type has unique characteristics and requires tailored management strategies to improve the quality of life for those affected.

Urge Incontinence

Urge incontinence is characterized by a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by involuntary urine leakage. This type is often related to an overactive bladder and can be triggered by a variety of factors, including infections, neurological disorders, or bladder irritants.

Stress Incontinence

Stress incontinence cccurs when physical activities such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising put pressure on the bladder, leading to urine leakage. It is often associated with weakened pelvic floor muscles.

Overflow Incontinence

Overflow Incontinence happens when the bladder is unable to empty completely, causing it to overflow and leak urine. This type is often linked to conditions that obstruct the bladder, such as an enlarged prostate, or to nerve damage that affects bladder control.

Neurological Incontinence

Neurological incontinence results from neurological disorders or injuries that interfere with the nerve signals involved in bladder control, leading to involuntary urine leakage without the sensation of needing to urinate.
