Acupuncture for Bladder Problems

Bladder problems, especially among women, are quite common. Many women assume that bladder problems are 'part of the deal', but fortunately, there are solutions. Acupuncture can help with various types of bladder issues - from cystitis to incontinence. Read on to see what an acupuncture treatment can do for you.

Acupuncture for Cystitis

In cystitis, an inflammation occurs in the urethra and/or bladder. Cystitis usually happens because bacteria from outside, most commonly from the anal area, have entered the urinary tract. Cystitis is more common in women than in men because women have a shorter urethra, which gets contaminated by bacteria more quickly. Acupuncture for cystitis can be used both preventively and during the cystitis. To prevent cystitis, acupuncture treatment often focuses on kidney function, promoting the natural immune system, or strengthening muscle tension to reduce the chances of bacterial attack. During cystitis, acupuncture is also very effective. The advantage of acupuncture is that there is no need to use antibiotics. However, a cystitis diagnosis must always be first established by a general practitioner.

Acupuncture for Incontinence

Incontinence is an uncomfortable condition that often occurs in later life, but also during or after pregnancy (read more about acupuncture during pregnancy here). We often see that the first signs of incontinence occur during activities such as running, laughing, or coughing. When dealing with incontinence, the cause must first be identified before acupuncture can be effectively used for treatment. The acupuncturist will do this together with you in an initial consultation.
