Overactive Bladder Relief

Do you have an overactive bladder? Did you know that approximately 33 million people suffer from Overactive Bladder (OAB)? Over 40% of women and 30% of men experience this condition. Overactive bladder can be a nuisance at best and debilitating at worst. It’s frustrating to constantly be running to the bathroom, and it can cause anxiety, shame, and even depression when accompanied by urinary incontinence.

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

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.

What Causes Overactive Bladder/OAB? In most cases, it is caused by an overactive muscle in the bladder that pushes the urine out. Causes include bladder infection, stress, other medical conditions, Parkinson’s disease, or a stroke. In some cases, certain medications can cause an overactive bladder.

Service We Provide: 

At Advanced Healthcare Solutions, we have been treating overactive bladder, incontinence, and other urinary challenges for over 28 years. Our holistic approach combines time-tested medicine and cutting-edge technology to provide effective treatment with no side effects.

Acupuncture for Overactive Bladder: Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) 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 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 combines 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.

Symptoms Include:

  • Urgent need to urinate
  • Frequent urination
  • Nocturia (waking up at night to urinate)
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Urge to urinate immediately after urinating
