Did you know that 1 in 4 women suffer from Urinary Incontinence?

Over 200 million people worldwide suffer from UI, and whether you are one of those people or you know someone that does, I am here to tell you that there is a solution!

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control

  • Many people, both men and women, suffer from urinary incontinence. We don’t know for sure exactly how many because many people do not think to tell anyone about their symptoms. They may be embarrassed, or they may think nothing can be done. So they suffer in silence.

There are different types of UI, with the most common being:

  • Stress incontinence: weak pelvic muscles let urine escape. It is one of the most common types of urinary incontinence. Leaking my happen with exercise, walking, bending, lifting, or even sneezing and coughing.

  • Urge incontinence: You have a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine.

  • Overflow incontinence: You experience frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to a bladder that doesn’t empty completely.

Urinary incontinence can be caused by everyday habits, underlying medical conditions or physical problems. The most common seen with women:

  • Pregnancy/childbirth: Vaginal delivery can weaken muscles needed for bladder control and damage bladder nerves and supportive tissue, leading to a dropped (prolapsed) pelvic floor.

  • Aging: the bladder muscle can decrease the bladder’s capacity to store urine.

  • Menopause: women produce less estrogen, a hormone that helps keep the lining of the bladder and urethra healthy. 

Pelvic floor exercises such as Kegels can help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles (sit comfortably and squeeze the muscles 10 to 15 times) but what if I told you there was a quicker, easier way to work out those muscles? 

The Emsella is a breakthrough treatment for incontinence, its a completely non-invasive option that revolutionizes women’s intimate health and wellness. Its a simple 28 minute treatment, patients sit on the Emsella chair and in return you receive about 13,000 kegels!
