Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control and it’s a common and often embarrassing problem. The severity of stress and urge incontinence ranges from occasionally leaks when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that’s so sudden and strong you don’t make it to the bathroom in time.
Urinary incontinence is an under-diagnosed and underreported problem that increases with age, however many younger active woman notice symptoms when exercising or taking their kids to the trampoline jump center.
A miraculous non surgical treatment of urinary incontinence, called the O-Shot® was developed by Dr. Charles Runels. The O-Shot® uses platelet rich plasma (PRP) as an effective solution to treat female urinary incontinence.
History of the O-Shot and Stress Incontinence
When Dr. Runels first began using the O-Shot® to enhance women’s sexual pleasure and their ability to have better, more powerful orgasms, his patients reported another amazing benefit. More than 90 percent of these women who previously suffered with stress incontinence reported that they completely stopped leaking urine after the O-Shot®.
Dr. Runels reports that this number is actually closer to 99.9 percent in younger, otherwise healthy women with a normal body weight (BMI below 25).
“What’s amazing to me is that approximately 40 percent of women in this country have stress urinary incontinence problems, but no one is willing to talk openly about it,” said Dr. Runels. “How many physicians can say to their patients, ‘Come to my office on your lunch break, and you’ll walk out with zero stress incontinence?’”
The O-Shot’s ability to eliminate such an embarrassing and socially debilitating condition goes beyond the cure rates of other traditional and alternative methods of treating stress incontinence: acupuncture, biofeedback training with electrical stimulation, Kegel exercises, microcurrent stimulation, pelvic floor exercises, and others.
In addition, PRP injections are “autologous” (meaning the material comes from a woman’s own body) to stimulate the production of her own tissue. To date, there has never been a report of PRP injections causing allergic reactions or urethral obstruction issues.
How the O-Shot® Works
The O-Shot® procedure is a quick, usually painless 20 minute non-surgical procedure. The O-Shot® procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Then using a proprietary technique, platelet rich plasma is extracted from the blood and injected into the numbed area at the upper vaginal wall and near the clitoris. There is no recovery time and results are almost immediate in some women.
