Dealing With Male Incontinence?

SO, what do you do to address male incontinence?


There are numerous approaches:


  • Surgery -- this can be the last resort; physicians may insert a sphincter balloon or do a sling procedure to create an internal pouch

  • Synthetic injection around the urethra

  • Catheterization -- having a catheter inserted into the bladder to empty the bladder

  • A condom catheter -- a man’s penis fits into this devise and leaking urine falls into the device

  • Medications:

    • Oxybutynin (Ditropan) treats overactive bladder and urge incontinence.

    • Flomax for guys who have an enlarged prostate.

    • Botox is injected to help bladder muscles relax

  • Limit the amount of fluid you drink

  • Drink smaller amount at regular intervals during the day

  • Scheduling trips to the urinal more often during the day

  • Absorbent underwear or pads

  • Strengthening pelvic floor muscles -- through exercise or by treatments like Emsella at Wave It Away -- this is a non-surgical, no additional medication approach!!

Emsella is an amazing machine! It was designed to treat incontinence for women and men. You come to our office in Evansville, IN and sit on the Emsella Chair for 28 minutes. You do not have to undress; just sit as you come! Emsella does 11,200 Kegel exercises in 28 minutes. The protocol is 6 treatments, twice a week for three weeks. Most clients see remarkable improvement from these treatments. We have found that patients may need some maintenance treatments quarterly to maintain the achieved results. And the great thing -- no surgery, no medication, no down time, comfort to go about your life without worrying where the next urinal is, and monetary savings by not having to use as many or even no pads or adult diapers! What a relief!
