Bladder Conditions

Bladder infections are one type of urinary tract infections which can cause severe pain. The urinary tract is made up of the bladder, kidneys, ureters, and the urethra — all of which can become infected if collected bacterium is not completely flushed out. Bladder infections vary in severity, but our staff can help determine how best to treat them. If you experience a combination of any of the following symptoms, you should come in to seek treatment:

  • Pain while urinating
  • A frequent urge to urinate
  • Cloudy or dark urine
  • Leaking urine
  • Pain in the back or beneath the ribs
  • Fever, chills, nausea, or vomiting

UTI/Bladder Infections

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) can cause serious problems if left untreated. Complications from UTIs can cause permanent damage to the bladder and/or kidneys, and bacteria can potentially enter the bloodstream and affect other organs. UTIs become especially concerning if you are pregnant or if you have a fever of 101.5º F or higher. If you have recurring UTIs or if you continue to experience symptoms after 48 hours of antibiotic treatment, you should seek additional care.

Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a symptom of an underlying bladder issue that should be addressed as soon as possible. Long-term urinary incontinence can lead to skin infections and urinary tract infections, and can bring embarrassment and anxiety. Urinary incontinence can be caused by the following contributors:

  • Respiratory issues and coughing
  • Weakness of the pelvic floor
  • Abnormalities of the bladder
  • Bladder infections
  • Kidney stones
  • Neurological disorders

Treatment

Treatment methods for bladder issues vary upon severity, cause, and location. In most situations, our physicians will prescribe antibiotics while also suggesting an increase in fluid intake, or changes to your hygiene routine. In certain circumstances, bladder conditions can be caused by prostate issues, low hormone levels, or malformed organs. In these situations, further medical treatment may be recommended or even required. Our skilled medical team is equipped to handle your unique situation with professionalism and confidentiality, and will use careful judgment in determining the best treatment for your bladder symptoms.
