How does continence stimulation help Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)?
Approximately 30% of women who experience incontinence are unable to voluntarily contract the pelvic floor muscle and require additional assistance to aid in their pelvic floor training.
This is where continence stimulation is vitally important in the re-training of the pelvic floor muscles.
Pelvic Floor Stimulation (PFS) is a non-invasive treatment which activates natural neuromuscular mechanisms and is aimed at exercising and toning the pelvic floor muscles.
In the case of Stress Incontinence (SUI), PFS automates pelvic floor exercises via a pudendal nerve reflex. Unlike other treatments, PFS has no side-effects, always exercises the right muscles and does not require active patient participation.
Numerous studies have reported that 70% of patients are either improved or cured using PFS.
Like any other muscle building, stimulation for Stress Incontinence takes time to work, You should expect to exercise for at least 12 weeks for best results.
PFS also works in the same way for the treatment of faecal incontinence or urinary incontinence in men, if used with an anal probe instead of a vaginal probe.
