Several treatments are available for urogynecological problems. Most of these therapies can resolve pelvic and bladder disorders effectively. Urogynecology treatment is a comprehensive program that employs non-invasive techniques to manage various conditions of the bladder and the pelvic floor including incontinence, overactive bladder, and pelvic organ prolapse and emptying disorders.
Non-invasive techniques utilize a multi-pronged approach to treatment. Exercises to control and relax the pelvic floor muscles are recommended to handle incontinence and other bladder concerns. Dietary changes and altering the fluid intake are a part of the treatment program that helps in long-term relief from the symptoms. At the same time, biofeedback mechanisms utilize audio-visual aids to teach the patient voluntary contraction and relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles. The urologist may prescribe medications and hormone therapy to assist the exercises and other biophysical procedures employed in the treatment of the condition.
Urinary incontinence can be caused due to the weakening of the muscles, ligaments and tissues of the bladder and urethra. Collagen injections around the bladder and urethra can restore strength and elasticity of these muscles. Botox treatment is also used in several cases for temporarily paralyzing the muscles of the uterus.
For a prolapsed uterus or vagina, pessary treatment can provide immediate relief from pain. A plastic disc is inserted through the vagina that acts as a funnel on which the prolapsed organ can temporarily rest.
Urogynecologic treatments are mostly successful in the resolution of the bladder and pelvic floor disorders. In extreme cases, surgery may be recommended.
