Overactive Bladder Treatment
Overactive Bladder (OAB) is a condition associated with urinary frequency, urinary urgency, and urge incontinence (UUI). It is very common, affecting an estimated 33+ million Americans of both genders and all ages.
You may have OAB if you feel like your bladder is running your life, i.e. “I know where every bathroom in town is” or “when I have to go, you better get out of my way!”
There are other conditions that can mimic OAB symptoms, so having your symptoms fully evaluated is important.
- Other causes of urinary frequency, urinary urgency, and urge incontinence:
- Bladder cancer
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Pelvic floor muscle dysfunction
- Neurological or spinal cord conditions
The initial office evaluation involves a detailed history and physical exam and urinalysis. For most patients, the initial treatment will be based on the evaluation from your first visit. However, there are some of patients who may require more testing based on their symptoms or examination. Radiological studies (X-ray/CT scans), urodynamics (bladder testing studies) or cystoscopy (looking inside the bladder) may be necessary.
