How to treat urinary incontinence with tecartherapy?
A few weeks ago we shared an article on our Facebook profile which explained that between 30 and 60 % of multiparous women and women of menopausal age suffer from urinary incontinence, a condition which is also very common in women after childbirth and in men who have had prostate operations.
Because of the discussions generated by this publication, we have decided to publish this article to do away with the mistaken belief that you have to resign yourself to using an incontinence pad and to not finding a solution, such as the one offered by Capenergy thanks to our tecartherapy treatments.
According to the White Book on the Socio-Economic Impact of Urinary Incontinence in Spain, urinary incontinence is the third largest chronic disease causing the greatest loss of quality of life among Spaniards. Only mental illness and serious cardiovascular problems, such as embolisms and heart attack, have greater impact. No, it’s not normal to leak, whatever age you are. And there is a solution.
What is urinary incontinence?
Incontinence consists of a perception of the involuntary leaking of urine associated with an urgency to urinate, when you strain to do something, or both. Also, when this urgency to urinate exists and there is a need to urinate eight times or more a day, even at night, this is called the hyperactive bladder syndrome. According to the WHO, Urinary Incontinence (UI) is defined as “the involuntary leakage of urine which causes a hygiene/social problem, and which can be demonstrated objectively”.
How do you treat urinary incontinence with tecartherapy?
Before anything else, it is important to identify the symptoms, when they appear, what you eating and drinking habits are, how you manage the need to urinate and how many times you go to the toilet each day. All this information is of great relevance in order to make a good diagnosis and identify the true cause of the incontinence.
When choosing a urogyneacological tecartherapy treatment as a solution, it is worth noting that, thanks to our technological advances at Capenergy, we have succeeded in creating a highly-specialist intra-cavity device for the non-invasive treatment of this type of pathology.
This technology consists of the application of controlled radio-frequency energy using temperature sensors, which allows us to know the temperature reached within internal and external tissue at all times, and in this way, making it completely safe for the patient. It also achieves really notable results, always keeping in mind that each patient will respond to the same treatment in a different way.
