If you have urinary incontinence, you may be relying on medications that help the sphincter muscle function properly. You may also resort to antidepressants to ease the mental health consequences of this life-limiting condition.
But taking medications daily isn’t risk-free. Not only do these drugs fail to address the root cause of your condition, but they can also lead to side effects such as gastrointestinal issues, confusion, and trouble with memory.
So, patients are often left with two options: choosing a chiropractic approach – which is often ineffective – or living in fear of having to undergo surgery.
At Neuragenex, our mission is to help you regain control over your health without surgery, chiropractic treatments, or medications. We do this through Neurofunctional Pain Management – a whole-person approach that uses regenerative medicine to address all underlying lifestyle and medical factors that may be contributing to sphincter spasms and urinary incontinence.
Here’s what a Neurofunctional Pain Management approach to pelvic floor muscle spasms includes:
Electroanalgesia For Pelvic Floor Muscle Spasms
Electroanalgesia is an FDA-cleared pain management method that utilizes tolerable pulses of electrical current. Electroanalgesia can be used to strengthen and retrain the muscles of the pelvis to contract and relax properly, which can help you reverse the effects of pelvic floor dysfunction and urinary incontinence.
This treatment works by stimulating the nerve endings within the pelvic muscles to instruct the muscles to contract when they should (i.e.: during urination). It also helps with conditioning the sphincter muscle. In turn, stronger pelvic muscles are able to withstand more pressure, such as when you sneeze, jump, or laugh. This helps you regain control of your bladder function without medications or surgery, and return to enjoying your daily activities.
Electroanalgesia also offers a cascade of health benefits. The electrical pulses, when delivered to the affected area, improve blood and oxygen circulation, and trigger the release of the body’s pain-relieving hormones (endorphins).
Although electroanalgesia works similarly to other forms of electrical stimulation therapy, its ability to deliver 10,000 electrical pulses per second makes it a far superior and more efficient option to retrain the muscles of the pelvis, especially when compared to over-the-counter alternatives, such as TENS.
IV Therapy For Pelvic Floor Muscle Spasms
Ad hoc IV therapy sessions aim to correct nutritional imbalances and deficiencies that may be aggravating your condition, such as low levels of carotenoid, vitamin C, zinc, and calcium. By being delivered directly to the bloodstream, the injected minerals and vitamins are easily absorbed and provide long-lasting hydration.
Based on the results of comprehensive blood tests, custom IV therapies deliver all those nutrients that your body is missing to achieve optimal health – such as zinc, potassium, and B-complex vitamins. At Neuragenex, we provide patients with IV therapies specifically designed to address nutritional factors that may increase the risk of urinary incontinence.
Lifestyle Counseling For Pelvic Floor Muscle Spasms
Your lifestyle can have a profound impact on your general health, as well as on the correct functioning of your pelvic muscles and bladder. For example, weight gain, poor conditioning, and urinating too often are just some of the variables that may be inadvertently contributing to discomfort you experience. However, these factors can be modified!
That is why, as part of our whole-person approach, we provide tailored lifestyle counseling services. When working with one of Neuragenex’s specialists, you’ll be able to identify and correct those aspects of your lifestyle and diet that are negatively affecting your health, so that you can return to making the most of your everyday life.
