What Is Bladder Weakness?
Urinary incontinence, weak bladder, over-active bladder, urinary leaks…these are just a few of the terms used to describe what affects 1 in 3 women every day when they cough, sneeze, laugh, lift or feel a sudden urge and have to go straight away.
The first step to address unwelcome urinary leaks is to understand the cause, and that more often than not, urinary leaks can be due to having a weakened pelvic floor.
The pelvic floor is a key set of deep muscles situated in the pelvis, running from the frontal pubic bone to the base of the spine. Shaped like a hammock, the pelvic floor holds the pelvic organs (uterus, vagina, bowel and bladder) in place and supports the bladder to provide control when you urinate. They relax as the bladder contracts to let urine out, and tighten in order to allow you to hold and get on with your day without mapping out toilet stops.
By strengthening your pelvic floor muscles you can treat the primary cause of urinary incontinence and no longer have to tolerate leaks. This can be done by using special medication (which your GP will have prescribed for those with fairly severe cases) or through pelvic floor exercises.
A simple solution is Innovotherapy - a clinically proven, effective treatment to restore your pelvic floor.
What Is Innovotherapy
INNOVO has been developed to treat the root causes of urinary incontinence and Innovotherapy is the name of the treatment it delivers. Innovotherapy is a non-invasive way to restore your pelvic floor, treating the primary cause of urinary leaks rather than just masking the symptoms.
Using a hand held controller that is attached to a two part garment, Innovotherapy sends targeted impulses via a set of conductive pads (attached to your upper thigh and buttocks) to safely and effectively activate the muscles of the entire pelvic floor.
It is a proven technology which has been designed to optimally strengthen your pelvic floor with 180 perfect contractions per session, allowing the device to do your pelvic floor exercises for you. No it’s not cheating, it’s just very clever. Innovotherapy, already used by thousands of women, is safe and can be used in the privacy and comfort of your home for lasting results.
