Inura was born from the vision of Professor Grant S. Mulholland, a U.S. world-renowned urologist who really believed women should not have to endure OAB symptoms for their entire lives.
This last article focuses on the 3rd line of treatment for Overactive Bladder (OAB): invasive treatments. Currently, there are different options available: sacral nerve modulation, posterior tibial nerve stimulation, botox injections, and bladder surgery. Although these options are affective, they are still considered as a last resort, only when there is no response to behavioral lifestyle changes, and oral medications. Below you can read why.
At Inura, we want to break the stigma and shift cultural norms around Overactive Bladder (OAB). In this article, we will focus on behavioral interventions that can be implemented as a first line of treatment for OAB patients. Lifestyle changes, such as physical exercise, bladder training, and a combination of restricting certain fluids with changing food intake habits, may improve bladder control and help OAB patients to gain back control of their lives.
