Causes: Overactive Bladder

Unfortunately, the cause behind why you might develop an overactive bladder is often unknown. If you have a neurological disease you are more likely to experience this condition. Other possible factors behind OAB include anxiety and the types of drink you consume. Further reasons behind an overactive bladder might be:

  • Bladder stones
  • UTI
  • Damage to the nerves as a result of surgery or trauma to the abdomen or pelvis
  • Prostate or bladder cancer
  • Side effects of medication

Treatment Options: Overactive Bladder

If you are suffering from an overactive bladder there are many things you can try to help ease the situation. Your GP may be able to offer you certain medication, and they will also likely advise you to perform pelvic floor exercises. Limiting caffeine and alcohol intake can help with OAB, as too can bladder training. OAB can also sometimes be relieved by increasing the fibre in your diet as this will help treat constipation – which could be causing your bladder to feel unnecessary internal pressure.

At Este, we offer the ground-breaking new Emsella treatment for OAB. This treatment involves sitting fully-clothed on the Emsella chair for 28 minutes. During this time, you will experience the equivalent of 11,000 pelvic floor contractions. It is pain-free, non-invasive, and can help target a number of conditions such as weak bladder control and urinary incontinence.
