Nonsurgical Urinary Incontinence Treatments at Women’s Health New England
Urinary Incontinence is a common concern for many women. Not only is UI embarrassing, but it can also significantly hinder one’s quality of life. Learn more about Urinary Incontinence and how you can improve your bladder retention without invasive surgery or lengthy downtime.
What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urination requires muscles to contract or tighten and then relax. These muscles are controlled by nerves responsible for sending signals telling the tissues to contract or relax. Urine is pushed out of the bladder, down into the urethra via muscle contractions. When this occurs, the sphincter muscles in the urethra relax and allow the urethra to open and release urine.
Urinary Incontinence, known as UI, occurs when muscles responsible for retaining or releasing urine become damaged, causing the nerve signals to overreact. For most women, UI occurs after vaginal childbirth. However, it can be caused simply by aging or menopause.
Emsella for Urinary Incontinence
Thankfully, there is a painless, non-surgical option for women struggling with UI. Emsella is a non-invasive, comfortable procedure. The popular treatment addresses both types of Urinary Incontinence, Stress Incontinence and Urge Incontinence. Unfortunately, most women suffer from one or both types of UI. Just one Emsella treatment lasts for 30-minutes and significantly improves bladder retention after several sessions.
How Does Emsella Work?
Emsella is a revolutionary UI treatment. It works by strengthening the muscles that support the bladder. During an Emsella treatment, patients sit comfortably on an ergonomic chair while remaining fully clothed. The chair, known as the Kegel throne, emits high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. HIFEM stimulates powerful contractions in the pelvic floor. The neurons force the muscles to contract or tighten rapidly, inducing more than 11,200 Kegel contractions.
Unlike manual Kegels, the contractions during an Emsella session are more powerful. In just 30-minutes, more than 11,000 supramaximal Kegels can be induced in the pelvic floor. The powerful contractions are scientifically proven to strengthen muscles in the pelvic floor and tighten Kegels muscles to help with urine control. This both increases urinary retention and improves vaginal laxity.
