Beaumont Study: Nerve Stimulation Helps with Overactive Bladder
Date:5/31/2013

Beaumont Health System research finds that symptoms of overactive bladder, or OAB, were reduced in those who received tibial nerve stimulation.

For those who participated in the study, results show frequent trips to the bathroom during the day decreased by nearly 30 percent, or from 12 to 8.7; nighttime trips decreased by almost 40 percent, or from 2.7 to 1.7; and urge incontinence episodes per day decreased by 100 percent.

“This study demonstrates that with ongoing therapy, patients with overactive bladder can have fewer symptoms and can return to daily activity without disruption or embarrassment that is often caused by this condition,” says Dr. Peters.

According to the Urology Care Foundation, about 33 million Americans – men and women – have OAB. The number of people diagnosed with OAB may be much larger because many people living with this condition don’t ask for help; they are embarrassed or unaware of ava
