As you get older, the organs that perform your daily functions can begin to change. Things that were once simple, like using the restroom, can become complicated. Urinary incontinence is an issue millions of people struggle with every day.
Women, in particular, are susceptible to experiencing incontinence at some point in their lives. Innovation sectors have long ignored this fact and have historically failed to help women combat or mitigate incontinence.
Incontinence can be embarrassing and exceedingly inconvenient. You deserve to be able to go when and where you choose. Thankfully, technology meets this problem with Emsella, a revolutionary new treatment for incontinence.
With Emsella treatment from Radiant Divine Medical Spa, you can be proactive about your bladder health. Keep reading to learn how Emsella strengthens the muscles of your pelvic floor and helps you regain control of your bladder.
Types of Urinary Incontinence
Incontinence can be caused or provoked by genetic predisposition, medical conditions, or simple wear on the body over time.
There are five types of urinary incontinence, which are described in detail below.
Stress Urinary Incontinence
Stress urinary incontinence is when leakage occurs due to increased abdominal pressure from physical activity. This may occur when you cough, sneeze, laugh, or exercise. In more severe cases, leakage may occur simply from standing up, walking, or bending over.
Urge Urinary Incontinence
Urge urinary incontinence is when you suddenly get the urge to urinate, followed by urinary leakage. You may feel like you need to urinate often, including throughout the night. The feeling often comes on so fast that you may not be able to make it to the toilet in time.
Mixed Urinary Incontinence
Mixed urinary incontinence is a combination of urge and stress urinary incontinence. Experiencing mixed incontinence is common for many women, particularly as they get older.
Overflow Urinary Incontinence
Overflow incontinence is when your bladder is unable to fully empty itself, resulting in overflow and unexpected bladder leaks. With overflow incontinence, you may not even realize your bladder is full.
Functional Urinary Incontinence
Functional incontinence is when an obstacle, like a physical or cognitive condition, makes it difficult for you to urinate in the toilet. Unlike the other types of incontinence, the bladder is functioning normally.
It may be difficult to identify which type of urinary incontinence you have, so ask your doctor if you aren’t sure.
What Causes Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is primarily a result of your pelvic floor muscles weakening. This can result from many things, such as pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, nerve damage, or aging.
It’s simply a fact that as we grow older, certain muscles become weaker. This can be especially true for the pelvic floor muscles, which are not typically exercised without specialized attention.
Whatever the cause, not being in full control of your bladder can take a physical and emotional toll. Finding the right incontinence treatment can drastically reduce your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
What Is Emsella Incontinence Treatment?
Emsella is a chair designed to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. It uses electromagnetic energy to deliver supramaximal contractions to your pelvic floor, simulating conventional kegel exercises to a much higher degree of efficacy.
These contractions help strengthen your muscles and are stronger and more effective than normal kegel exercises. The energy used to contract your muscles is safe and far more efficient than manual kegel exercises. One session with Emsella can return the benefit of 10,000 kegel exercise reps.
By increasing the stimulation, Emsella incontinence treatment can strengthen your control over urinary functions far more than a traditional approach, “reeducating” your pelvic floor muscles to give you the support you deserve.
Sessions in an Emsella typically last 30 minutes. Emsella is fully non-invasive, providing a life-changing treatment while requiring nothing more than sitting in a comfortable chair.
What Does Emsella Treat?
Emsella is effective at treating mild to moderate mixed, urge, and stress urinary incontinence. As your pelvic muscles become stronger, you will experience less leakage and a greater ability to control when you go.
It is recommended for men and women of any age, and studies have confirmed that 95% of users reported improved quality of life after using Emsella.
What Is the Emsella Procedure Like?
Before we schedule the procedure, we will start with a comprehensive consultation to discuss your specific symptoms and medical history. We know this can be a sensitive topic, and we want to make sure you have the opportunity to ask questions and voice any concerns you may have prior to the procedure.
Once we’ve determined Emsella is right for you, the procedure itself is straightforward. During your session, you will sit on the Emsella chair for approximately 30 minutes. Because this treatment is non-invasive, there is no downtime, no recovery time, and you can remain fully clothed throughout the procedure.
Emsella is pain-free, though you will likely experience a buzzing or tingling sensation as your pelvic floor muscles contract. This just means that the machine is successfully activating and strengthening your muscles.
How Soon Will I See Results?
While it is possible you may feel relief after your first session, it takes time to tone and develop your muscles. Your results will increase over time as your pelvic floor muscles become stronger.
During your consultation, we will create a schedule that suits your specific needs to help you achieve your goals. Typically, our treatment plans consist of six sessions over the course of three weeks.
If you follow through on your treatment plan, you may experience benefits that last up to six to eight months. Scheduling maintenance appointments can also help you maintain consistent results over time. Regular treatments every three months will keep your muscles strong and keep you feeling in control.
