Women have this conversation all the time. You sneeze, you cough, jump and you end up having a tiny bit of urine escape. ThermiVa is a non surgical method to fix this problem. No cutting, no needles, a non-invasive procedure and no more worrying about a sudden sneeze. Bladder leakage, also known as urinary incontinence, is the loss of bladder control for involuntary loss of urine. In fact, it’s very likely that you or someone you know—your mother, sister, or best friend—is quietly coping with this potentially embarrassing problem. If you think you’re experiencing symptoms of incontinence, we may be able to help you reclaim your life.
How does ThermiVa help with a Leaky Bladder?
Reduce urinary leaking and urge. When ThermiVa is used with pelvic floor physical therapy many women are able to avoid bladder surgeries like the mesh and sling. Specifically, it contracts the tissues to a tighter bundle. It also encourages new tighter collagen production and helps in tissue and nerve healing. Radiofrequency’s therapeutic effects on muscular and tissue healing is well known and used in physical therapy practices for decades.
From Dr. Suji
“You know the old commercials… I’m not just the doctor, I’m a client as well. If I’m going to offer a treatment I’m going to know first hand the pros and cons. I had the ThermiVa treatment done on myself and I’m thrilled. After 3 kids I was one of those people that had to wear a panty liner on a daily basis. You never knew when I would sneeze or laugh and have a little accident. After only one treatment for myself (so far) I have seen a great improvement in bladder leakage. I have even been able to stop wearing panty liners. If you are dealing with this issue, please come in and I will tell you about my personal experience. I recommend ThermiVa!”
The Science and the Studies: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1557394/
In a cross-sectional study at 5 U.S. sites, 293 incontinent women quantified supplies, laundry, and dry cleaning specifically for incontinence. Participants estimated willingness to pay for 25-100% improvement in incontinence. Potential predictors of these outcomes were examined using multivariable linear regression.
Participants aged 45 – 67 years old were racially diverse and had a broad range of incontinence severity. Nearly 90% reported incontinence-related costs. CONCLUSION: Women with severe urinary incontinence pay $900 annually for incontinence routine care, and incontinence is associated with a significant decrement in health-related quality of life. Effective incontinence treatment may decrease costs and improve quality of life.
