EMSELLA INCONTINENCE TREATMENT | IMPROVE URINARY RETENTION
Emsella is a non-surgical incontinence treatment for men and women that improves urinary retention. Many people hesitate to talk about issues concerning bladder control. But urinary incontinence is a common problem, especially among women. In fact, one-third of American women report suffering from some form of urinary incontinence. This includes urge incontinence (the sudden need to urinate before involuntarily urinating) and stress incontinence (involuntary leakage during physical exertion.) Fortunately, incontinence treatment with Emsella offers an effective solution for those who suffer.
During the 30-minute Emsella procedure, a fully clothed patient sits comfortably on an ergonomic chair. Using electromagnetic technology, the chair stimulates over 11,000 supra maximal muscle contractions (Kegels). These powerful contractions strengthen the tissues of the pelvic floor and vaginal wall for increased urinary retention.

Increased sensitivity during intercourse
Reduced risk of prolapse
WHAT CAUSES INCONTINENCE?
For many, the cause of urinary incontinence (UI) includes vaginal childbirth, menopause, or body aging. When you urinate, the contracting muscles of the pelvic floor push urine out of the bladder and into the urethra. Simultaneously, sphincter muscles around the urethra relax to release the urine from the body. Incontinence results when the muscles and nerves that help release or retain urine become damaged.
The most common types of urinary incontinence include:
Stress Urinary Incontinence
Urge incontinence refers to a sudden “urge” to urinate, followed by the involuntary loss of urine. Urge incontinence typically occurs when abnormal nerve signals cause bladder muscles to contract. The overactive muscles of the bladder overpower the sphincter muscles, causing involuntary urination.
Stress incontinence or stress UI is the most common type of incontinence. It is characterized by involuntary urine leakage during physical exertion or movement, such as coughing, laughing, sneezing, jumping, etc.
Stress incontinence occurs when tissues of the pelvic floor, which support the bladder, become stretched out and weakened (usually after vaginal childbirth). This allows the bladder to exert pressure on the sphincter muscles that keep the urethra shut.
HOW DOES EMSELLA WORK?
Emsella is the first FDA-cleared, non-surgical incontinence treatment for improving urinary retention. During the incontinence treatment, a patient sits, fully clothed on an ergonomic chair, nicknamed “the Kegel throne.” The chair employs High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. This energy safely penetrates the pelvic floor, activating neurons that signal the muscles to contract. One, 30-minute treatment stimulates 11,000 supramaximal contractions (the equivalent of 11,000 Kegels.)
With these contractions, the pelvic floor muscles become stronger, and the vaginal wall becomes tighter. The tissues supporting the pelvic organs are, in a sense, rebuilt during this incontinence treatment. This process leads to a decrease in urge and stress incontinence, better urine retention, and increased sexual satisfaction.
You will experience tingling and pelvic floor muscle contractions during the procedure. You may resume daily activities immediately after the treatment.
Many Emsella patients report significant improvement in their bladder control after just one treatment. For most patients, the average treatment plan includes six treatments. (two sessions held weekly for three weeks.)
Research shows that 95% of patients who followed the average protocol report an improvement in the quality of life after just three weeks of Emsella. Furthermore, two-thirds of the patients eliminated or reduced their need for pads to catch leakage. 3 As with any medical treatment, results may vary. *
