Urinary incontinence is a common problem. According to John Hopkins Medicine, about 25 million people suffer from this condition, and about 75-80% of sufferers are women. Emsella is a non-invasive treatment to help treat urinary incontinence. Here is how Emsella can work to help reduce urinary incontinence.
Emsella is an FDA-approved device that uses electromagnetic energy to strengthen the pelvic floor. It is a chair you sit in for 30-minute sessions a couple of times a week for three consecutive weeks. The goal is to build up and improve the strength of the pelvic floor muscles.
The pelvic floor muscles are essential in supporting bladder control. One of the key contributors to urinary incontinence is weak pelvic floor muscles. Weak pelvic floor muscles can cause bladder leakage during activities like coughing, laughing, sneezing, or exercising.
The treatment uses high-intensity electromagnetic waves that force exercise of the pelvic floor muscles and strengthen them. The device causes supramaximal contractions of the muscles that would be difficult to affect any other way. Thousands of contractions of these muscles in a single session would take months of workouts in the gym.
Many patients experience relief after a single session. The results can be life-changing. The process is easy, non-invasive, and doesn’t cause any discomfort. You remain fully clothed throughout the treatment. Patients report a tingling sensation during treatment but no pain.
This innovative treatment effectively addresses different types of urinary incontinence, including stress, urge, and mixed incontinence. It targets the underlying cause of incontinence, often related to weakened pelvic floor muscles or improper nerve signaling between the bladder and brain.
Improving pelvic muscle strength and coordination can alleviate symptoms across various types of incontinence. Unlike surgical options for incontinence treatment, like bladder sling surgery or mesh procedures, this device gets results without unwanted side effects. It is non-invasive and painless.
If you are suffering from urinary incontinence, Emsella may be the solution you have been searching for. This non-invasive treatment method allows you to regain control of your bladder and avoid any possible leaks so that you can live your life without any worries.
