Muscle training for the pelvic floor - NeoControl magnetic field therapy for the stimulation of nerves and muscles

Diagnosis: Urinary incontinence

There are many disorders that have their origin in the region of the floor of the pelvis - and this applies both to men as well as women. From the 40th to 50th year of age on, women who have already had several births can increasingly suffer from so-called stress incontinence. This disorder is due to anatomical changes and an increasing weakness of the connective tissue of the closure apparatus of the urinary bladder, with the result that a simple sneeze or cough, the lifting of a heavy weight, or even sports activities may lead to an involuntary passage of urine. The amount of urine lost in this way can vary from just a few drops a day, all the way to the complete voiding of the bladder and the incapacity of the bladder to retain urine at all.

Men can also be affected by stress incontinence. In many cases this is due to surgical operations such as radical prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate tumour or transurethral prostate resection in the case of a benign enlargement of the prostate. Injuries of the sphincter apparatus and changes in the anatomical structures in the male pelvis as sequelae of such operational procedures may result in a loss of continence.

Diagnosis: Chronic prostatitis

Chronic prostatitis is a widespread disorder, predominantly affecting men between 30 and 50 years of age. In the exact sense of the word, prostatitis describes an infection of the prostate gland. In the medical world the term has evolved to include a broader range of disorders, and now "prostatitis" has become a collective term for complaints in the urogenital system and in the area of the pelvic floor and rectum.
In many cases the symptoms cannot be causally explained by an inflammation of the prostate or conclusively distinguished by differential diagnosis. When the prostate is normally sized or only slightly enlarged, men may experience pain prior to, during, or after urinating. Frequently victims report feeling as if they have a foreign body in them, or complain of indistinctly characterizable pain in the pelvic region.

Treatment with the NeoControl pelvic floor therapy system

For many years now, the so-called extracorporeal magnetic innervation method (ExMI) has proven its worth as an extremely gentle and complication-low form of therapy. Since 1998, this ExMI therapy method has been used with substantial success in the USA for the treatment of dysfunctions of the lower urinary tract, in particular for the management of symptoms of the hyperactive bladder type with urge incontinence, stress incontinence, or mixed-type incontinence.

With each impulse the muscles contract and relax in a way that can be felt by the patient, with the contractions corresponding to the impulse frequency of the therapy head.
The therapy chair is controlled by means of an external control unit.
