Double Voiding Technique

Double voiding is a therapy to help people who have a problem completely emptying their bladder, left-over urine in the bladder can cause pelvic pain and urine infections. Those who have problems completely emptying their bladders may be helped by double voiding. After urinating, you wait a few minutes and then try again to empty your bladder completely.

The bladder can retain urine for a number of reasons due to weakness or possibly nerve damage. Kegel8 can and will help. This digital pelvic floor electrical stimulation will automatically calm the bladder inhibiting detrusor (muscle of the bladder) over-activity and exercise the pelvic floor muscles. Strengthening and toning the pelvic floor muscles helps restore your bladder to full health and could help your bladder function properly again.

Step 1. Bladder Emptying Technique - Get the position right

Correct bladder emptying is really important

  • Lean forward supporting your upper body with your forearms or hands on your thighs.
  • Try to get your pelvic floor muscles to relax by keeping an inward curve in your lower back and letting your lower abdominal wall relax forward.

Some find that using a toilet foot stool such as the Squatty Potty can help raise the knees in an optimum position for better bladder emptying.

Step 2. Bladder Emptying Exercises - Hula hoop and do it again

When you have emptied your bladder, stand and rotate your hips as if performing with a hula-hoop then sit back down to empty any residual urine. Left-over urine can cause pain or urine infections which is why it is so vital for you to empty your bladder (without straining).

Step 3. Achieve full voiding in just 12 weeks with Kegel8
