Having an overactive bladder can be inconvenient, embarrassing, and can even negatively affect your mood (if you’re unable to hold your urine or the urge to urinate wakes you up several times a night). Thankfully, there is a relatively painless, non-invasive procedure that you can use to not only improve your bladder function, but also boost your immunity, improve your general health, and increase your overall sense of well-being: acupuncture!
Getting acupuncture for overactive bladder is not only backed up by thousands of years of clinical experience but has been validated many times over in recent years by modern research. In a 2014 study, acupuncture for overactive bladder was shown to improve symptoms in over 79% of participants.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help treat conditions like these because they address both the body and the mind, aiming to correct the root cause of a condition. For instance, often an overactive bladder is the result of an underlying neurological condition like Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s. Acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system have been studied for many years, with studies showing that it can actually rewrite portions of the central nervous system.
