There are many potential causes of bladder leakage which can be an uncomfortable and embarrassing medical problem. The overactive bladder is a very common bladder problem that causes excessive urination and urgency. It is not uncommon for women to feel such a strong urge to urinate that they are unable to make it to the bathroom in time, and they end up wetting themselves. As a result of stress urinary incontinence, women leak urine when coughing, sneezing, or exercising.
Embarrassing urinary incontinence also called “bladder leaks” affects both men and women of all ages. A person’s quality of life can be adversely affected by this annoying problem. When women laugh, sneeze, cough, or exercise, one in three experience bladder leakage.
It is now possible for both men and women to minimize or eliminate urinary incontinence with a variety of innovative, non-surgical treatments. Emsella Chairs, sometimes called Kegel Thrones, is FDA-approved to treat urinary incontinence in women and men. Neither surgery nor downtime is required when using an Emsella Chair.
Emsella Chairs allow patients to remain fully clothed while sitting. Electromagnetic technology is used in the Emsella chair to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. All the pelvic muscles are engaged simultaneously by thousands of Kegel-like contractions per second. Patients remain fully clothed while using the Emsella chair.
Thus, urinary incontinence leaks are reduced or eliminated due to the restoration of neuromuscular control of the pelvis.
Electromagnetic pulses are used to cause supramaximal contractions of the pelvic floor muscles when you sit on this non-invasive device. By stimulating your muscles, Emsella makes them tenser than they usually are-even tenser than Kegel exercises.
In general, a full treatment lasts six sessions, spread out over multiple weeks with two sessions per week. The process involves thousands of stimulated contractions, and should only cause tingling and pelvic floor contraction sensations. By treating incontinence early, Emsella prevents the need for surgery. By using electromagnetic energy technology, all pelvic muscles are simultaneously engaged.
Women and men with urinary incontinence can benefit from the Emsella Chair.
Following childbirth and menopause, women are more likely to experience urinary incontinence due to the weakening of the pelvic floor. Lower pelvic organs are supported by a sling-like network of muscles known as the pelvic floor.
For the treatment of urinary incontinence, the Emsella Chair has been shown to be effective in a number of clinical studies. Ninety-five percent of patients are satisfied with the service. One study found that 50% of participants reported complete resolution of their incontinence.
3 months after treatment with the Emsella chair, 100% of study participants reported improved sexual function.
Properly and consistently performing Kegel exercises results in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. Emsella treatments last 30 minutes, during which more than 10,000 contractions of the pelvic floor muscles are stimulated. In Emsella chairs, the pelvic floor muscles are contracted more frequently than is humanly possible.
Patients receive six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. For three consecutive weeks, two treatments are scheduled each week. Each treatment session should be separated by 2-3 days. Depending on the severity of urinary incontinence and desired results, patients may need enhancement treatments every 1 to 6 months after the initial 6 treatments.
After your first Emsella session, you may notice improvements, but you will need at least six sessions to achieve optimal results. Your pelvic floor muscles will definitely be strengthened and built with Emsella. As with any other muscle, the pelvic floor muscles need regular exercise to remain strong. Our protocol for permanent change recommends combining regular maintenance Emsella treatments with daily, at-home Kegel exercises in order to maintain the improvements achieved by Emsella.
