Do you have an overactive Bladder?

Did you know that approximately 33 million people suffer from Overactive Bladder? Over 40% of women suffer from OAB  and 30% of men.

What is overactive bladder (OAB)?

  • An urgent need to urinate.
  • Waking up to urinate 2 or more times per night.
  • The need to urinate often.
  • The need to urinate even if you have just gone to the bathroom.
  • Leaking urine when you have the urge to urinate.

Overactive bladder can be a nuisance at best, and debilitating at worst. It’s frustrating to constantly be running to the bathroom, and can cause anxiety, shame and even depression when it is also accompanied by urinary incontinence.

Contrary to what many people think, overactive bladder is NOT a normal part of getting older and isn’t something you should think you have to live with. It’s a real medical condition that deserves treatment.

What causes an Overactive Bladder/OAB?

In most cases it is caused by an overactive muscle in the bladder that pushes the urine out.  The causes of an overactive bladder include bladder infection, stress, other medical conditions, Parkinson’s disease or a stroke. In some cases, certain medications can cause an overactive bladder.

What to do to treat it effectively with no side effects.

With a combination of time-tested medicine and cutting-edge technology our results are excellent.

Acupunture For OverActive Bladder

Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation is a series of acupuncture treatments that stimulate a nerve located behind your medial ankle bone. The Chinese call it the “Kidney – Bladder Pathway.” Approved for use in the United States by the FDA, it can significantly reduce or eliminate OAB symptoms like sudden, frequent urges to urinate or urine leakage from urge incontinence.

The AHS Neuromodulation System delivers gentle electrical stimulation of the posterior tibial nerve. The system is a combination of a hand-held stimulator, a thin needle electrode and a connecting lead set. The stimulator generates electrical impulses that are delivered to the nerve through the lead set. This process is also referred to as neuromodulation.

Treatment consists of 30-minute weekly sessions for 12 weeks. Typically, it takes about 6 weeks for symptoms to change, but improvement is faster for some patients. It’s important to receive all 12 treatments to know if PTNS is right for you. If you experience improvement, as most patients do, then PTNS maintenance stimulation is usually performed once every 3 to 4 weeks for up to two years.
