How is Overactive Bladder treated?
There are a variety of treatments which are known to help overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. Common treatment options include:
- Conservative treatment
- Vaginal oestrogen therapy
- Botox bladder injections
- Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS)
- Sacral Neuromodulation
Usually, the doctor will try to treat your symptoms without resorting to “invasive” treatments or operations. Many patients will respond well to these “conservative measures”. Tablets may be used to help relax or calm the bladder.
For people who are not responding to simple treatments, Botox injections or Sacral Neuromodulation may be appropriate. These types of treatment can be very effective: see our Botox and SNM sections for more details.
