Male Incontinence

Male incontinence affects men of all ages and can have a significant impact on a man's quality of life leading to unfortunate accidents and embarrassment.  

As men age, incontinence problems become increasingly common and can be triggered by a number of different medical conditions ranging from the prostate, neurological disorders, diabetes, urinary tract infections, stones within the urinary tract and even chronic coughs.

 

 

 

If you have developed incontinence, don't be alarmed.

MansMatters offer a number of therapies that can help you overcome this.

Incontinence and the Prostate Gland

One of the key causes of male incontinence and a key specialism of MansMatters is prostate issues. We have successfully treated many men with prostate issues, including benign prostatic hyperplasia and post-radical prostatectomy surgery causing incontinence and erectile dysfunction. Surgeries which include radiation therapies and radical prostatectomy, damage nerves and the associated muscles of the bladder, leading to a loss of control. An enlarged prostate, commonly referred to as BPH, leads to bladder leakage.

Neurological disorders including Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries can play havoc with the signals from the brain to the bladder leading to urinary incontinence.

Medical comorbidities such as diabetes and diabetic neuropathy can worsen incontinence, whilst excessive drinking of caffeine or alcohol will irritate the bladder, the propensity to leak and the frequency of this happening. Smoking is another risk factor as it can have a negative impact on the circulatory and respiratory health.

Types of Incontinence

MansMatters treat different forms of male incontinence including stress, urge, mixed and overflow incontinence.

  • Urge incontinence occurs when a man has a sudden desire to urinate and cannot hold it. This can lead to accidents before a man reaches the lavatory.
  • Stress incontinence occurs when pressure on the bladder is stronger than the muscles that control it and can happen when sneezing, coughing or exertion in sport. 
  • Overflow incontinence occurs when a man's bladder doesn't empty and there is always a residual amount left. This causes leakage.
  • Mixed incontinence refers to a combination where a number of the factors above are present.

Our treatments

MansMatters have cutting edge technology to treat men with incontinence, including the Tesla chair.

A traditional approach to treating incontinence is through manual pelvic floor muscle exercises. The Tesla chair is an amazing scientific invention which conducts the equivalent of 28,500 pelvic floor muscle exercises in the space of 30 minutes.

Not only is it vastly superior to manual therapies it also engages 100% of the muscle fibre, where manual exercises engage a maximum of 40% of the muscle fibres.
