Discuss PTNS with your GP to embrace a future where your bladder no longer controls you. Start your journey towards liberation, confidence, and joy today at HEALPATH.

Common queries answered

  • PTNS administers gentle electrical pulses through a needle near the ankle to stimulate the tibial nerve, regulating bladder and pelvic floor function. This restores harmony to the nerves, alleviating OAB symptoms.
  • Studies show up to 80% patient response rates with PTNS, significantly enhancing quality of life, urination, and bladder control.
  • A 12-week treatment journey with weekly sessions can lead to reduced urgency, frequency, and leakage incidents. Maintenance sessions may be recommended for sustained progress.
  • Each treatment session lasts about 30 minutes. Treatments do not require any preparation, fasting or restriction in activities such as driving. You will be comfortably seated and can read or just rest during your session.
  • In the seated position a fine needle similar to an acupuncture type needle is inserted into the skin just behind the ankle on the inner aspect of the leg. The needle is connected to a device that sends a low-grade electrical signal, which travels up the nerves in the leg to the nerves that control the bladder. A tingling sensation may be felt in the ankle, foot or toes during the treatment.
  • PTNS is well-tolerated, with minimal risks. Temporary side effects are rare and usually resolve quickly. Your GP will address any concerns.
  • Consider PTNS if behavioral changes or medications haven’t effectively managed your OAB. Consult your GP to determine its suitability based on your unique needs.
