Discussing OAB Treatment
Depending upon the individual’s unique case of overactive bladder, Urologic Physicians and Surgeons, PA will recommend a course of treatment that may consist of one single treatment, or may be a combination of several popular treatment methods. It is typical to begin treating OAB by trying the most minimal treatments at first, and gradually transitioning to more invasive methods if they are required. The severity of the individual’s condition will also factor heavily into this decision. If lifestyle changes are not enough to relieve the patient’s symptoms, then medications, injections, and nerve stimulation therapy will likely be explored as additional options. In some cases, the cause of a particular patient’s OAB may be unknown, despite the completion of every diagnostic procedure possible. In such instances, it is best to look for ways in which you can manage the symptoms of overactive bladder. It is also possible to lower your likelihood of developing this condition by utilizing the following preventative strategies:
- Do not smoke
- Avoid diuretics like coffee and alcohol
- Stay regularly active
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Address any known health conditions that may influence or worsen your OAB, such as diabetes or neurological disorders
- Utilize pelvic floor strengthening exercises like Kegels
