What Causes Incontinence Issues?
Urinary incontinence is the inability to control your bladder voluntarily. It is a significant problem, especially among older adults. Our muscles often weaken as we age, and this includes the muscles involved in bladder control. Unintentional urination can occur as a result, whether while awake or when sleeping.
Of course, incontinence can be a huge source of embarrassment. The condition may also cause you to limit your social activities or only travel when a restroom is nearby.

What Causes Incontinence?
In women, muscle laxity in the pelvic floor is one of the most common causes of incontinence. The pelvic floor muscles include bladder muscles and the muscles of the vagina. Childbirth and previous pelvic surgery can contribute to the problem.
Incontinence does not have to be complete emptying of the bladder. Instead, it may be “leakage.” This leakage can be brought on by coughing or sneezing. Other times, incontinence may occur during sleep. Whatever the degree of your urinary incontinence, help is available.
How to Treat Incontinence
Pelvic floor exercises, including Kegel exercises, may help patients dealing with incontinence. Other patients choose to use absorbent pads or briefs. However, there is another option.
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) vaginal treatments can help tighten the muscular layers of the vagina. For many women, HIFU treatments aid in urinary control and assist in decreasing incontinence. HIFU does not use lasers and is pain-free. HIFU can be particularly useful for women who notice vaginal laxity after childbirth or for women experiencing menopause. Older women can also benefit from the effects of HIFU therapy, including greater urinary control.
