Urge incontinence, also known as overactive bladder, is a type of urinary incontinence characterised by a sudden and strong urge to urinate that is difficult to control, leading to involuntary urine leakage.
It is caused by an overactive detrusor muscle, which is responsible for contracting the bladder during the emptying phase.
he main symptom of urge incontinence is a sudden, strong urge to urinate that is difficult to postpone. This urge may be accompanied by leakage of urine before reaching the bathroom. Women with urge incontinence may also experience increased urinary frequency (urinating more than eight times a day) and nocturia (waking up multiple times during the night to urinate).
The O Concept™ was created by Dr. Wakil to bring a wide range of non-surgical treatments now available for treating urge incontinence, but are not well known.
The O Concept™ is a bespoke program where the patient receives a treatment protocol that is tailor-made especially for her and the specific urge incontinence condition in order to achieve the best results. The O Concept™ is the only treatment protocol that combines treatments in specific order and at precise intervals based on each individual patient and their specific condition.

The exact cause of urge incontinence is not always clear, but several factors can contribute to its development, including:
- Neurological conditions: Certain neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, or stroke, can affect nerve signals between the bladder and the brain, leading to overactive bladder symptoms.
- Bladder irritants: Consumption of bladder irritants like caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods, and artificial sweeteners can trigger bladder spasms and increase the risk of urge incontinence.
- Urinary tract infections: Infections in the urinary tract can cause irritation and inflammation, leading to overactive bladder symptoms.
- Bladder abnormalities: Structural abnormalities in the bladder, such as bladder stones or tumors, can contribute to urge incontinence.
Some common treatment options include:
- Behavioral Techniques: Bladder training techniques, such as scheduled voiding and bladder control strategies, can help retrain the bladder and improve control over urination.
- Pelvic Floor Exercises: Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles through exercises such as Kegels can help improve bladder control and reduce symptoms of urge incontinence.
- Dietary and Fluid Management: Avoiding bladder irritants, such as caffeine and alcohol, and maintaining a healthy fluid intake can help manage symptoms.
- Medications: Certain medications, such as anticholinergic drugs or beta-3 agonists, may be prescribed to relax the bladder muscle and reduce bladder contractions.
- Nerve Stimulation: Techniques like sacral nerve stimulation or percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation can be used to modulate nerve signals and improve bladder function.
- Surgical Interventions: Procedures like bladder augmentation or urinary diversion may be considered.
The most popular treatments for stress urinary incontinence are limited, which doesn’t always suit every patient, or get the best results.
The O Concept™ protocol founded by Dr. Wakil uses the latest cutting-edge non-surgical treatments that achieve results in just a few sessions, approx. 20-40 mins each, with no to very little down-time, and no side effects reported.
