Conditions & Treatments
Emory's Urology Department offers a number of treatments for incontinence patients. Use the links below to learn more about each incontinence treatment option.
Diet and Incontinence
We live in an age of fast foods, and many women may have a diet that is sadly lacking in fiber and bulk. A healthy diet should include not only all of the required nutrition, but also natural sources of fiber, softeners and lubricants.
Exercise and Incontinence
Walking exercise has been abandoned in favor of mechanical transport. However, it is walking that gently shakes and moves the gut. If you are a city dweller, you can walk your way to normal weight and gut mobility.
Neurogenic bladder occurs when some or all of the nerves to the bladder are damaged or incomplete. These problems can occur because of a birth defect such as spina bifida, or because of injuries to the nerves in the back or the neck or with problems such as diabetes or stroke.
Urodynamics is the investigation of the function and malfunction of the lower urinary tract with regard to bladder filling/storage and emptying. It measures bladder pressures, volumes, and flows.
