Millions of people suffer from an overactive bladder—meaning, their bladder prevents them from controlling when and how much they urinate. There are many reasons why a person will have an overactive bladder and suffer from the affects of incontinence, but thankfully, there are treatments on the market that have worked successfully for many people. Interstim Continence Control Therapy is a neurostimulation treatment representing an implant that uses electrical stimulation of the sacral nerves to manage the urge to urinate. Depending on the patient, Interstim Continence Control Therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with more traditional therapies, such as medications and biofeedback therapy.
