Urinary incontinence can happen at any age, but is more common among middle-aged and older women. It can be caused by natural aging, weakened pelvic floor muscles, childbirth, hysterectomy, menopause, obesity, and other factors. Your pelvic floor muscles support your pelvic organs. When your pelvic floor muscles are weakened, your internal organs are not fully supported which causes difficulty controlling the release of urine. The Emsella treatment will strengthen those pelvic floor muscles, giving you back the control of your bladder.
What are the benefits of Emsella Treatment?
Emsella treatment offers so many benefits for women with urinary incontinence. One of the most important benefits is that the treatment doesn’t require any form of surgery. Other benefits of Emsella treatment include:
- Reduced urinary and fecal incontinence
- Improved quality of life
- Improved sexual performance
- Strengthened pelvic floor muscles
Who are candidates for Emsella Treatment?
Approximately two hundred million people are living with incontinence all over the world. More than twenty-five Americans are suffering from urinary incontinence. Most of these individuals are women with really weak pelvic floor muscles. You are one of them if you experience any of the following:
- Leakage of urine when you are involved in any form of exercise or sports activities
- Leakage of urine when you sneeze or cough
- Abstained from sexual intimacy because you are scared of awkward leaking
- Urinate frequently
If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above, we have good news for you. At Embry Women’s Health, we have providers that can improve your quality of life by treating your incontinence with Emsella.
However, you can’t receive Emsella treatment if you are pregnant or have any of the following:
fever, malignant tumor, hemorrhagic condition, metal implants, implanted neurostimulator, heart disorder, pulmonary insufficiency, electronic implant, and cardiac pacemakers.
How does Emsella Treatment work?
Emsella is a unique device that is approved by the FDA for the treatment of urinary incontinence. The device uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to restore neuromuscular control by stimulating the muscles on the pelvic floor. An Emsella treatment session can stimulate thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions. These muscle contractions are essential for the restoration of the muscles responsible for incontinence. Studies have proven that ninety-five percent of incontinence patients experience a change in their quality of life after an Emsella treatment procedure.
Emsella treatment session lasts for 30 minutes in the office. A health care provider will recommend a treatment plan that suits you after consultation. The treatment sessions are spread over a few weeks. Our provider at Embry Women’s Health will monitor the treatment procedure and ensure that the treatment is done correctly.
You just need to sit down and relax on a chair without undressing. After sitting on the chair, our provider will start the treatment. You will feel moderate contractions and tingling of the pelvic floor muscles during the treatment. You can experience up to 11,000 Kegel contractions during each 30-minute session.
What happens after Emsella Treatment?
After the treatment, you can go back to your usual daily tasks. It is common to observe changes after the first 30-minute session or after a couple of sessions. Once you start seeing changes, there will be an improvement after every treatment session. Usually, the best results of Emsella treatment are noticed a few weeks after the completion of treatment sessions.
