Male urinary incontinence

Language : pt-brPortuguês

Losing urine is not normal.

Even if it’s only a little bit!

In men with urinary incontinence (loss of urine), this is most common following a prostatectomy, surgery for prostate cancer. In these cases, they often start with a significant loss of urine making post-operatory use of diapers necessary. Treatment for perineal rehabilitation can begin around 30 to 45 days following surgery.

Men can also suffer from urinary stress incontinence, due to weakness in the muscles of the PERINEUM. In these cases, they complain of losing a few drops of urine when they cough or sneeze; or when they make some sort of effort such as lifting weight, jumping, running, etc.

In some cases, men lose urine for no apparent reason, they sense a urinary urgency, a sudden need to urine; generally, when they are arriving at home, near the bathroom, or hearing the sound of water. This is urinary urgency incontinence.

Unfortunately, as they find it embarrassing or think that it is a normal factor of aging, few men seek out treatment. This urine loss tends to worsen over time, necessitating the constant use of personal hygiene products or diapers.

The inability to hold ones’ urine is embarrassing and causes many men to suffer a decrease in their personal, social, and professional quality of life and in some cases, leads to social isolation.

Perineal rehabilitation is an effective, non-evasive treatment for this condition and promotes the neuromuscular rehabilitation of the PERINEUM and its strengthening.

The sooner the patient seeks out treatment, the better the results are.
