A Closer Look at Urinary Incontinence

Often referred to as overactive bladder, urinary incontinence is simply the unintentional release of urine. It might be more common in women, but men face it too. There are different types, like stress, urge, overflow, and functional incontinence. And the most common reason? Weakened pelvic floor muscles. But the good news is, we have bladder control exercises and treatments like Emsella to help.

What Causes Urinary Incontinence?

There are several reasons we might experience this condition. Weakened pelvic floor muscles are a major one. But factors like aging, medical procedures (like prostate surgery for men), childbirth, obesity, and long term cough can also be triggers. 

Understanding Different Types of Urinary Incontinence

  1. Stress Incontinence: Those unexpected leaks when you laugh, sneeze, or exercise.
  2. Urge Incontinence: That overpowering “I need to go right now” sensation.
  3. Mixed Incontinence: Experiencing symptoms of both stress and urge incontinence.

But there’s hope. With treatments like pelvic floor therapy and the Emsella chair, we’re seeing transformative results for stress, urge and mixed incontinence.

Emsella: Changing the Game in Bladder Leakage Treatment

Emsella is more than just a treatment; it’s a game-changer. Picture this: a therapy where you sit, and advanced technology takes over. The Emsella chair sends energy deep into your pelvic muscles, triggering thousands of muscle contractions. It’s like an intense workout session for your pelvic muscles, but you’re just sitting there.

Comparing Emsella with Other Treatments

When it comes to urinary incontinence, a myriad of treatments promise relief. From traditional methods like Kegel exercises to surgical interventions, there’s a lot to sift through. So, where does Emsella fit in this landscape? Let’s dive into the specifics.

  • Emsella vs Kegel exercises:
    • Kegel exercises: These are manual exercises aimed at contracting and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles. They’re recommended as a first-line defense against urinary incontinence. However, consistency and correct technique are vital, and many individuals find it challenging to maintain regularity or ensure they’re performing them correctly.
    • Emsella: Think of Emsella as a supercharged Kegel workout. In a single session, Emsella induces thousands of deep pelvic muscle contractions, offering the equivalent of weeks or even months of manual Kegels.
  • Emsella vs Vaginal weights/cones:
    • Vaginal weights/cones: These are devices inserted into the vagina and held in place by contracting the pelvic muscles. They provide resistance training, similar to weight lifting for your pelvic muscles.
    • Emsella: Emsella offers a comprehensive workout for the entire pelvic floor. Without the need for any inserts, it provides a consistent and all-encompassing strengthening session.
  • Emsella vs Biofeedback therapy:
    • Biofeedback therapy: This therapy uses electronic monitoring to convey information about physiological processes. In the context of incontinence, it helps individuals learn how to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles.
    • Emsella: Emsella takes the guesswork out. Instead of just identifying and suggesting exercises, it directly stimulates the pelvic muscles, ensuring a thorough workout.
  • Emsella vs Electrical stimulation:
    • Electrical stimulation: Small electric currents are used to stimulate the pelvic muscles, mimicking what happens when you exercise the muscles.
    • Emsella: While the principle is similar, Emsella’s approach is non-invasive. It also stimulates a broader area, ensuring a comprehensive pelvic floor workout.
  • Emsella vs Medications:
    • Medications: Several drugs aim to reduce the symptoms of urinary incontinence. However, they come with potential side effects and address the symptoms, not the root cause.
    • Emsella: Emsella focuses on strengthening the very muscles responsible for bladder control, offering a solution that targets the root cause without any drug-related side effects.
  • Emsella vs Surgery:
    • Surgery: There are various surgical options for treating urinary incontinence, each with its risks and recovery periods.
    • Emsella: Emsella provides a non-invasive alternative. Without any incisions, anesthesia, or recovery time, it’s a gentler yet effective approach.
  • Emsella vs Other treatments:
    • Other treatments: PTNS (percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation) and pessaries are among other methods used for treating urinary incontinence.
    • Emsella: Emsella’s technology-centric approach sets it apart. By directly targeting the pelvic floor muscles with consistent, deep contractions, it offers a unique and promising outcome.

Why Choose Emsella?

We believe in holistic health, and the Emsella chair is a testament to our commitment. Here’s why we think it’s a game-changer:

  • Non-invasive: No surgeries, no medications—just sit and let the technology work its magic.
  • Efficient: Each session induces thousands of pelvic muscle contractions, a feat hard to achieve with manual exercises.
  • Safe: With minimal side effects and no downtime, it’s a treatment we’re excited about.
