Holistic Treatment for Bladder Dysfunction in North Naples, FL
Can’t urinate and empty your bladder? It may be bladder dysfunction, also known as voiding dysfunction. This may be an embarrassing, painful problem, but it’s also a potentially serious one that—if left untreated—could eventually cause organ system failure.
Bladder dysfunction differs from an overactive bladder or urinary incontinence in that the trouble is getting the urine out, not keeping it in.

- A sudden, powerful urge to urinate
- Needing to urinate often

Possible Causes of Bladder Dysfunction

- Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA)
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
