What Is Stress Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is a health issue that affects both men and women. People suffering from incontinence often experience problems with bladder control leading to involuntary urine leakage. This is often an uncontrollable issue and can ultimately cause a negative impact on life.
Incontinence can be classified into five types, each characterized by different causes and triggers.
  • Urge Incontinence
  • Stress Incontinence
  • Overflow Incontinence
  • Mixed Incontinence
  • Functional Incontinence
One of the common types of incontinence that occurs more in women than men is Stress Incontinence, which happens when the person does simple actions like coughing, sneezing, exercising, and heavy lifting. These actions put extra pressure on the bladder, causing a small amount of urine to escape from the urethra. Passing small amounts of urine is normal, but stress incontinence can make you pass larger amounts, particularly when you have a full bladder. It should be noted that stress incontinence is absolutely not related to psychological stress, and these are two different problems.
The most common reason for incontinence in men is Prostatectomy, or the removal of prostate glands as a part of prostate cancer treatment.

Stress Incontinence & Its Causes

Stress incontinence occurs due to weak pelvic floor muscles and the urinary sphincter (the muscles that control the urine flow and release). In general, obesity, chronic coughing, and smoking are some of the common causes of stress incontinence.

More specifically, stress incontinence in women occurs due to:

  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Weak bladder muscles
  • Menopause
  • Pelvic surgeries

Complications of Stress Incontinence

The main complication of stress incontinence is the involuntary urine leakage that occurs during certain physical activities. The leakage can be as little as a drop, a squirt, or even a steady stream of urine. However, this issue can also lead to other problems, such as:
Emotional Distress
Stress Incontinence can disrupt your social life, routine work, sexual life and even strain your relationships with friends and family.
Mixed Urinary Incontinence
Mixed urinary incontinence is a condition when you experience both stress and urge incontinence, where you involuntarily leak urine after urinating, i.e. the unintentional urine leakage due to overactive bladder muscle contractions causing an urgent need to urinate.
Skin Problems
The continuous contact of the skin with urine may cause irritation, sores, rashes, or chafing.

Treatment For Stress Urinary Incontinence

Most treatments for stress incontinence include:
Lifestyle Modifications (To reduce leaks)
  • Taking adequate liquids at the right time
  • Keeping oneself physically active
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Making sure you don't get constipated
  • Quitting smoking

In cases of mixed incontinence i.e., Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and OverActive Bladder (OAB), your doctor may prescribe OAB medication or OAB treatments. These drugs may help reduce leaks for an overactive bladder. They do not treat SUI.

Bladder training
It involves following a schedule for urination. As advised by the doctor, you should maintain a bladder diary and based on the information, your provider will create a schedule for you. Based on information from your bladder diary, your provider will create a schedule for you. Once you get adjusted to it, your schedule gradually allows you to wait longer between bathroom trips. As a result, you are more likely to be able to hold more urine in your bladder.
Exercises for strengthening pelvic floor muscles
Muscles in the pelvic floor that are strong hold urine better than those that are weak. Exercises that strengthen these muscles are called Kegel exercises. During these exercises, the muscles that control urine flow are tightened and relaxed.

JOGO Therapy For Stress Incontinence

Fortunately, JOGO’s therapies give long-term relief from an issue that’s been bothering millions of people. JOGO has been recommended as the first line of treatment by the American Urological Association (AUA) and the American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS).  The biofeedback treatments provided by JOGO are trusted by 50+ hospitals and clinics in India.

For Stress Incontinence, JOGO offers painless, non-invasive, and absolutely safe, sustainable therapies. JOGO enables the CNS(Central Nervous System) to restore signals from the brain to the muscle by leveraging the body's Natural Neuroplasticity.
JOGO harnesses the power of Electromyography (EMG) biofeedback, a technology that uses sensors to monitor and measure pelvic floor muscle activity. This innovative approach provides patients with real-time feedback on their muscle contractions, enhancing their awareness and control of these crucial muscles.

Through EMG biofeedback, JOGO cultivates a higher degree of patient adherence to pelvic floor exercises by delivering an interactive and informative experience. Regular participation in these exercises, spurred on by instant feedback, paves the way for more effective stress incontinence management.

JOGO's method strengthens pelvic floor muscles, which in turn bolsters support for the bladder and urethra, mitigating the risk of stress incontinence. Our non-invasive technique places patients at the heart of their treatment, bolstering their confidence and improving their quality of life.

JOGO Treatment Plan For Stress Incontinence

JOGO therapy is a Digital EMG based biofeedback therapy. It is non pharmacological and non invasive. JOGO’s advanced sensors pick up muscle signals which the patient can see in the form of a graph live on a tablet/PC. The entire treatment plan is guided by a pelvic floor specialist therapist who customises the intervention according to the unique needs of each and every client.

Do you conduct bladder function tests at JOGO?

Generally, urinary incontinence does not require any additional diagnostic tests. However, our JOGO therapist may recommend them for certain cases to assess the functioning of the bladder, urethra, and sphincter.

How does JOGO's Biofeedback technique help address stress incontinence?

In addition to helping you become more aware of your body's functioning, JOGO’s biofeedback therapy can help you regain control over muscles that contract during urination.

Will stress incontinence cause urine leakage every time I do some physical activity?

Not likely. However, any activity that puts pressure on your bladder may cause involuntary urine leakage, especially if your bladder is full.

Is stress urinary incontinence a recurring problem?

Yes, it can be a recurring problem, depending on the causes. For example, stress incontinence may happen only during periods of excessive activity or when you have a bad cough.
