About Urinary Incontinence Treatment
At Tidal Wellness, our caring group understands the difficulty and awkwardness you may experience when dealing with urinary incontinence. Also referred to as lack of bladder control, the issue can happen when physical stress occurs in the bladder, such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, or engaging in strenuous activity. This unintentional condition often happens because of changes in the body during menopause, pregnancy, and childbirth. Even though it is more common in women, men can also experience this issue. Dr. Erin Griffin utilizes the Alma FemiLift Pixel CO2 laser device to treat urinary incontinence. This minimally invasive procedure stimulates your body's collagen and elastin production, which can strengthen your bladder muscles and reduce urges. Proudly serving Wilmington, Jacksonville, Pender County, Leland, and Hampstead, NC, please contact our team to learn more and schedule an appointment with Dr. Griffin.

Is urinary incontinence permanent?
No, patients can treat urinary incontinence with many different approaches. In some cases, such as if the person is suffering from a UTI, vaginal infection, or constipation, it will likely recover on its own as soon as the urinary tract has fully healed. More severe cases can require attention that could range from several weeks or months, depending on several factors. These issues generally arise when a patient has weak pelvic floor muscles or damage to the nerves.
