Finally—A Natural Remedy for Stress Incontinence
O-Shot® therapy at Scottsdale PRP Aesthetics strengthens pelvic muscles to help eliminate incontinence
Urinary incontinence doesn’t only afflict women who are past menopause, younger women can also experience the embarrassment of unexpected urine leakage when they sneeze, laugh, cough or exercise.
Stress incontinence is caused by weakened pelvic muscles that support the bladder and urethra or because the urethral sphincter isn’t working correctly. This can happen following childbirth, with aging, injury to the area or from smoking. It can even be caused by certain medicines.
About half of older women experience involuntary urine leakage. Yet, despite the number of pads and panties that are advertised as “solutions” to incontinence, most of the approximately 14 million who are affected suffer in silence due to embarrassment.
Fortunately, there are natural solutions to stress incontinence and this article we will discuss three that don’t depend on chemical or surgical remedies. One such method is the O-Shot® therapy at Scottsdale PRP Aesthetics which has been gaining in popularity. Read on to discover how you can deal with incontinence naturally often times in just one treatment!
What is O-Shot® Therapy?
The O-Shot, PRP treatment was pioneered by Dr. Charles Runels and has shown to assist in the reduction of incontinence using the body’s own healing factors. A part of the Vampire, PRP treatment, the O-Shot at Scottsdale PRP Aesthetics, uses the same method as the Vampire, PRP treatments to improve pelvic muscle strength.
What is involved in O-Shot Therapy?
A small amount of your blood is placed into a centrifuge to separate out the growth/healing factors, which are then injected into the area under the urethra to help the muscles strengthen and heal. Because the O-Shot therapy in Scottsdale uses your own blood, there is almost no chance that you will have an allergic reaction to the treatment.
Why is O-Shot Therapy Popular?
As with the Vampire, PRP treatments, O-Shot therapy is a natural treatment that inserts healing factors into pelvic muscles beneath the urethra to naturally fortify the area. When the muscles strengthen, the ability to control urinary flow is also improved – as is the patient’s ability to be confident in her life.
This method is becoming well known because it is an effective incontinence treatment, it doesn’t require downtime and no significant recovery time. You also don’t have to worry about the impact of chemicals in pharmaceuticals – you are using your body’s own natural healing factors.
