What causes urinary incontinence?
If you’re experiencing a loss of bladder control or urinary incontinence, make an appointment with your urologist in Nashville. This condition, which often causes embarrassment, is treatable. Your urologist can pinpoint the cause of your incontinence, and work with you to develop a treatment plan and resolve your symptoms.
It’s important to recognize urinary incontinence as a symptom of an underlying problem, rather than a disease itself. By addressing the underlying issue, your urologist can treat your incontinence. Common causes include bladder and pelvic floor muscle weakness, nerve disorders, and vaginal prolapse. Birth defects, a UTI, and even constipation can also cause incontinence. Depending on the cause, your urologist can treat your incontinence with medications, surgery, or lifestyle changes.
Urinary incontinence is not a normal part of aging, and you do not have to live with it. Schedule a consultation at Urology Associates P.C. to get on the road to recovery. To make an appointment, call us at 888-656-0667.
