Urgent® PC/Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation
Urgent® PC or also called Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) is anoffice-based, FDA-approved therapy in the treatment of overactive bladder. It involves neurostimulation of a nerve located in the ankle. Gentle stimulation delivered through a tiny acupuncture-like needle travels to the nerves that control your bladder; decreasing the symptoms of frequency, urgency and incontinence.
Urgent PC starts with an initial 12-week trial period consisting of once-weekly office visits for 30-minute sessions. You should notice an improvement by the end of the 12-week trial. If it works for you, you will need a 30-minute treatment approximately once per month to maintain the results.
