Stem Cell Therapy for Urinary Incontinence

One of the most common health issues that affects people as they grow older is urinary incontinence. The inability to retain urine in your body increases with age for a variety of reasons.

It has been estimated that more than 50 per cent of adult women may suffer from this type of incontinence at some time. That proportion could be as high as 75 per cent in women aged over 65. Men are also affected by the condition – it has been estimated that more than three million men in the United States alone are sufferers.

The perception that this is an inconvenient but inevitable aspect of aging may lead many people to put up with urine leakage without seeking treatment. Another factor is that incontinence is seen as embarrassing.

Stem cell therapy for urinary incontinence may offer support to people affected by this condition. The positive effects that can be generated by the application of stem cells have the potential to deliver an improved quality of life for people who are suffering from this common issue.

Urinary Incontinence – Causes and Impact

While there are several types of urinary incontinence, the main symptom is always the same – an inability to prevent urine leaking from your bladder. The most common form is stress incontinence. This is not brought about by anxiety; the stress refers to the pressure that builds up inside your bladder.

If that pressure is greater than the ability of your urethra – the tube that urine passes through to leave the body – to stay closed, leakage can occur.

There are a host of reasons why your bladder may be less efficient than it needs to be. The muscles of your urethra may be damaged during childbirth, or during procedures such as hysterectomy or prostate removal.

How Stem Cell Therapy for Urinary Incontinence Works

Stem cell therapy has the potential to alleviate the symptoms of incontinence. Stem cells are undifferentiated, or “blank”, cells that have not yet become specialized. They can sense what your body needs, and signal your cells to promote healing.

The stem cells we use to treat patients at the Stemwell Clinic are collected from the umbilical cords of healthy volunteers. They can then be introduced to your body, either intravenously or by targeted injection, and start to work on tissue repair and regeneration.

Stem cells’ ability to regenerate damaged or weakened tissue, including muscles, means they can support the body’s natural healing process and lead to an improvement in symptoms and your quality of life.
