Stress urinary incontinence is a common medical condition experienced by an increasing number of women all over the world; but with the many advancements in medical technologies, treatment for incontinence no longer leaves these women with no alternatives other than something as invasive or complicated as surgery. In fact, more and more women’s healthcare specialists are treating incontinence using specially formulated bulking agents such as DURASPHERE XP.
DURASPHERE injections are extremely effective in treating women who suffer from stress incontinence, which is caused not by an uncontrollable urge to urinate, but by the physical stress put on weakened bladder muscles caused during physical activity. Stress incontinence usually occurs during intense exercise and even often when performing everyday functions such as lifting heavier objects; and it can be extremely embarrassing and cause a great deal of anxiety for the women who suffer from the condition, even if only on a temporary basis.
The Bulk of It
Specifically in the case of women who have experienced this form of urinary incontinence due to intrinsic sphincter deficiency, which is related to vaginal childbirth; neurological conditions that may inhibit proper nerve function; and any type of surgical procedure on organs of the pelvis, injectable bulking agents for incontinence have proven quite effective. These incontinence injections are used to bulk up tissue and strengthen the urethra in its ability to resist involuntary urination, which means that stress incontinence is no longer an issue.
For women who have a fear of surgery, receiving an injection of a bulking agent like DURASPHERE XP as a treatment for incontinence is a great encouragement. Incontinence in itself is a distressing condition and one that is often a topic that will go un-addressed by the women who suffer from it. It can be embarrassing and impose limitations on everyday life; but with proper diagnosis and the advice of a medical specialist such as a urogynecologist, it can be effectively treated so that life and health can be enjoyed to their fullest.
