Magnetic Help for Incontinence
The research was presented at the International Bladder Symposium in Washington, D.C. Test subjects were treated with Extracorporeal Magnetic Innervation therapy, a painless, non-invasive 20-minute treatment twice a week for a number of weeks.
The study says a third of the women reported absolutely no leakage following the therapy, known as NeoControl by brand. Dr. Peter Sand of Evanston Northwestern Healthcare in Illinois says such a long-term response without continued treatment is not seen after other therapies.
NeoControl uses powerful, pulsing magnetic fields to induce nerve impulses in the pelvic floor. These, in turn, exercise the muscles that control urinary tract function.
