Pain, according to studies, hastens the age-related decline in functional mobility; however, the pathways by which pain affects mobility remain unknown. Gerontological experts hypothesize that changes in energy expenditure may be driving the age-related decline in mobility; these ideas are outlined in a model known as the Energetic Pathway of Mobility Loss. Pain may play an important role in this process by inducing energetic inefficiency, physical inactivity, and decreased capacity.

What is Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence, or the inability to control one’s bladder, is a frequent and often embarrassing issue. The intensity can range from occasionally dribbling pee when you cough or sneeze to having a sudden, intense urge to urinate that prevents you from reaching a restroom in time.

There are five classifications of urinary incontinence, which include:

  • Stress incontinence: Urine leaks when you exert pressure on your bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy.
  • Urge incontinence: You have a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine. You may need to urinate often, including throughout the night.
  • Overflow incontinence: You experience frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to a bladder that doesn’t empty completely.
  • Functional incontinence: A physical or mental impairment keeps you from making it to the toilet in time.
  • Mixed incontinence: You experience more than one type of urinary incontinence.

The Truth about Pelvic Pain

 Because chronic pelvic pain is typically the result of several underlying conditions, expert consultation is recommended.

While a generalization of chronic pelvic pain may oversimplify the problem and lead to less than ideal treatment by clinicians, not providing treatment would be a disservice to anyone suffering from chronic pelvic pain.

How can i know if i have chronic pelvic pain?

Patients with CPPS typically report pain and discomfort in the lower abdomen or perianal region, along with some degree of voiding issues. The etiologies, pathophysiology, and therapy of this ailment have remained difficult and elusive despite the fact that it is a widespread condition with considerable negative impacts on the quality of life (QOL) of the patients. As a result, ongoing efforts and stringent criteria should be met to differentiate the diagnosis of CPPS in order to deliver the most accurate and effective care.
