  • muscarinic
  • Stretch receptors in the bladder signal the parasympathetic nervous system to stimulate the muscarinic receptors in the detrusor to contract the muscle when the bladder is extended. (wikipedia.org)
  • Darifenacin works by blocking the M3 muscarinic acetylcholine receptor, which is primarily responsible for bladder muscle contractions. (wikipedia.org)

  • Similarly, botulinum toxin is used to relax clenching of muscles, including those of the oesophagus, jaw, lower urinary tract and bladder, or clenching of the anus which can exacerbate anal fissure. (wikipedia.org)
  • urethral
  • From a holistic standpoint, most bladder control problems that are not the direct result of neurological damage, poor muscle tone or hormone deficiencies are usually the result of irritability within the bladder or urethral tissues caused by chronic inflammation and/or food allergies .

  • oxybutynin
  • Tolterodine, although it acts on all types of receptors, has fewer side effects than oxybutynin (M3 and M1 selective, but more so in the parotid than in the bladder) as tolterodine targets the bladder more than other areas of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • pelvis
  • 4 Dimensional Scanning - An advanced ultrasound scan of your pelvis and bladder can reveal disease processes that can cause many annoying and dangerous symptoms in the pelvis (stones, polyps, fibroids, cancerous growths and benign tumors, dilation or blockage of the urinary tract, etc.) 4 dimensional scanning allows for complex measurements that were impossible in the past.
