Over-Active Bladder

Over-active bladder leading to loss of urine in women is a condition about which we hear a lot.

Now The Journal of the American Medical Association gives a lot of hope to these patients using an easy treatment.

The Jornal reports a study of almost 200 volunteers, aged 55-92, who were given various treatments for this condition.

One of the treatments consisted of exercises of the pelvic and abdominal muscles along with biofeedback to identify the best muscles to control urination.

This group did the best, and had over 80% reduction in the number of episodes of loss of urine, a remarkable result.
