Pelvic Floor

The solution for incontinence

Incontinence is loss of bladder control, varying from a slight loss of urine after sneezing, coughing, or laughing to a complete inability to control urination. It’s twice more common in women than in men due to pregnancy and trauma to the pelvic floor during childbirth.

The female anatomy evolves over time due to multiple factors: pregnancy, childbirth, hormonal transformations, menopause, and aging. Inevitably, the pelvic floor is negatively impacted leading to pelvic floor weakness, stress urinary incontinence, and reduction in the quality of life.

Treatments for urinary incontinence:

Behavioral techniques: like going to the bathroom at scheduled times to train the bladder and cutting down fluids.
Strengthening Pelvic floor muscle: Kegels exercise in which you contract the muscles you would use to stop urinating and hold for five seconds, and then relax for five seconds. Work up to holding the contractions for 10 seconds. Aim for at least three sets of 10 repetitions each day. The use of electrodes can enhance the effects marginally.
Emsella is the state-of-the-art technology which utilizes High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate deep pelvic floor muscles and restore neuromuscular control. A single Emsella session of 28 minutes is equivalent to 11,000 Kegel exercises.

A pill is not an answer to all ills and surgery doesn’t cure all problems. We are fortunate to live in times when we can adapt the best practices from Western and Eastern Medicine. and this is one area where Western medicine has provided a great solution. When EMSELLA® is integrated with optimization of hormones and lean vs fat mass in the body, results are awesome.

What is EMSELLA®

EMSELLA® is a breakthrough treatment for incontinence and women’s intimate health. EMSELLA® strengthens the pelvic floor muscles to restore control to the bladder and bowel, empowering patients to live a life unhindered by incontinence. However, EMSELLA® sets itself apart by being the first and only incontinence treatment that is completely non-invasive and does not require patients to remove any clothing. In addition to treating incontinence, EMSELLA® can restore sexual health by improving sexual sensation.

How EMSELLA® Works?

EMSELLA® is a non-invasive treatment that delivers electromagnetic energy to the pelvic floor muscles. This energy causes the muscles to contract, which forces the muscles to adapt and strengthen while also improving muscle memory. However, EMSELLA® stands out because it activates the muscles far more effectively than other treatments or Kegels exercises. A single EMSELLA® treatment session is the equivalent of performing 11,000 Kegels! As a result, EMSELLA® effortlessly produces greater bladder and bowel control to reduce symptoms of incontinence.

Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary leakage of urine. There are three different types of urinary incontinence:

  • Stress incontinence is when there is exerted pressure on the bladder causing leakage. This can be caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing, or exercising
  • Urge incontinence is the sudden, intense urge to urinate frequently
  • Mixed incontinence is a combination of both stress and urge incontinence

This might be a result of weak pelvic floor muscles since pelvic floor muscles play an important role in supporting pelvic organs and controlling continence. Physiological changes can contribute to the development of urinary incontinence; changes such as vaginal delivery, menopause, and aging can decondition pelvic floor muscles.

Emsella is a great option for men and women of any age who desire a solution for urinary incontinence and improvement in their quality of life. Studies confirm 95% of patients report an improved quality of life.
