Prostate problems and Irritable bladder
Difficulty in passing urine due to prostate obstruction, can be treated with Electro-Acupuncture if obstruction is not severe. Irritable bladder can also be treated in this way. If no benefit is observed it is important to seek proper medical advice.
In older people urinary incontinence is common. Also in women who have had many children, there is sometimes difficulty in holding the urine especially when coughing or straining.
This occurs most often in elderly men and is most commonly due to enlargement of the prostate gland situated at the base of the bladder. If it is recurrent, it is important that the opinion of a urological surgeon is sought. The approach with Electro-Acupuncture can be very useful if the retention is caught early.
