Acupuncture for urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control often occuring when coughing, laughing or sneezing.

Urinary incontinence tends to affect women more than men often as a result of having children.

How acupuncture can help urinary incontinence

Acupuncture treatment can help people suffering from urinay incontinence by:

  • Decreasing the expression of c-Fos in the brain. Induction of stress urinary incontinence in rats has been shown to increase expression of c-Fos
  • Controlling nitrergic neurotransmitters in order to increase nitric oxide levels in bladder tissue, thus relaxing smooth muscle and allowing increased bladder capacity
