June 17th–June 23rd is World Continence Week 


As World Continence Week approaches this June 17th–23rd, let's shed light on a topic that touches many yet often remains unspoken. Incontinence, or inadvertent urine loss, is an enormous problem affecting over 25 million Americans, mostly women. Many are frustrated with traditional methods—pads, Kegels, etc. The fear of embarrassing urine leakage keeps women from being out in public, traveling, or dating. The need to wear a pad or a diaper at all times is humiliating and degrading. It is difficult to feel confident in any situation when you are worried about wetting your pants.

This week is not just about awareness; it's about empowering those affected by urinary incontinence to embrace the path to better health and comfort. Urinary incontinence doesn't have to be a silent struggle. There are a variety of treatments to help you regain control and confidence.

  • EMSELLA™: Emsella has offered many women freedom from incontinence - and it is effortless! Twenty-eight comfortable minutes on the Emsella chair, while you read a magazine, is like 11,000 kegel exercises but stronger than you can achieve voluntarily. Strengthening the pelvic floor musculature will help support all pelvic structures, including the bladder and the urethra. The result is much better control over urination and reduced urgency and frequency.
  • Morpheus8 V: Three 30-minute comfortable sessions of Morpheus8 V utilize the combination of radiofrequency and microneedling technology to rejuvenate the vagina and the vulva. The tightening action of Morpheus8 V strengthens the anterior vaginal wall, which in turn lifts the bladder and urethra. This results in a dramatic improvement in urinary incontinence.
  • V-Tone: V-Tone rehabilitates weak pelvic floor muscles for the treatment of stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence through electrical muscle stimulation (EMS).

This World Continence Week, let's take a step together toward wellness. We invite you to book a consultation with our caring providers.

When your hormones are in balance, they work harmoniously to maintain homeostasis with the body. However, imbalances in hormone levels can lead to a wide range of health issues that can include fatigue, weight gain or difficulty losing weight, mood swings, anxiety, depression, low libido, insomnia, brain fog, low energy, and the list goes on.

Achieving and maintaining hormone balance is an important part of your overall health. Optimal functioning hormones act as messengers that regulate virtually every bodily function. When they are balanced, the body can function optimally, promoting physical, mental, and emotional wellness.

Here at Deborah Wilson & Associates, we consider ourselves experts on the treatment of a variety of hormone alterations and deficiencies, using pellets and a complete array of the most up-to-date methodologies available. This office has been offering hormone pellet therapy for the last 15 years!

We are delighted to welcome Jenna, an Advanced Practice Nurse and Certified Nurse Midwife specializing in reproductive health, to our healthcare team!

Jenna grew up in western Kansas where she obtained her bachelor's degree in nursing. She earned her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Kansas Medical Center in 2013 and began her career in Kansas. Jenna and her family relocated, and she has been practicing in Arizona since 2014.

As an Advanced Practice Nurse, Jenna has become skilled at treating clients for a variety of gynecological needs: preventative care, cancer screenings, perimenopause and menopausal treatments, sexual health concerns, pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding, infection treatment, thyroid disorders, family planning, contraception, and infertility.

Hear from Jenna directly! Her Q&A offers a glimpse into her dedication to your health journey:

Q: Can you share a pivotal moment in life that shaped your approach to patient care?

'As a teenager, I had two impactful encounters with the healthcare system. One of my grandmothers fell ill with a systemic infection and was hospitalized in a long-term unit because of the higher level of care she needed. I was fortunate to be able to spend almost every day with her while she was in the hospital for several months, supplementing her care. I did not know much about healthcare at the time, but I knew that the nursing care on some days was great, and other days, very lacking. This piqued my interest in healthcare and the nursing field specifically. 

The second encounter with the healthcare system was when I birthed my first son, at 19 years old. In hindsight, I refer to the type of care I received as 'assembly line labor and birth.' My provider did not provide education and did not discuss options or risks/benefits with me at all during my pregnancy, labor, and birth. Even though we ended up with a 'healthy mom and healthy baby,' I suffered from psychological trauma that took me a couple of years to understand and reconcile. In the year following my birth, I took an elective nursing class from a local university, and I realized what was missing—patient advocacy and autonomy. The RN who taught the class took me under her wing and is the reason that I became an Advanced Practice Nurse Midwife.'

Q: How do you ensure your clients feel comfortable and empowered during their visits?

'I always give clients the space and time to tell me their story. Sometimes that might include non-medical topics, but it is important that I understand what is going on in their life that will influence the type of care they need from me. My goal at the end of each encounter is for the client to have all their questions answered and feel comfortable with the plan of care.'

Q: Outside of your professional achievements, what personal accomplishment are you most proud of?
'Raising three boys with my husband has proven to be challenging, but I am proud of the people they are becoming. I also really enjoy photography, web/graphic design, and running road and trail races for fun (I've never finished first or last!).'
