Urinary Incontinence and How EMSELLA® Can Treat It

Urinary incontinence is a common condition in men and women. In fact,  one-quarter to one-third of men and women in the United States have incontinence. People who have incontinence urinate even when they don’t want to. Meaning, they have no or little control of their bladder.

This can be embarrassing and significantly affect the quality of life, self-esteem, and relationships of those who have this condition. In this article, we’ll look at the causes of urinary incontinence and how EMSELLA® can treat it so you can feel confident again. 

What causes urinary incontinence? 

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control. It means that people who have incontinence can’t stop their urine from leaking out. It usually occurs more often as people get older and there are several reasons why people experience incontinence including habits, diet, medical conditions, and physical impairments. The type of incontinence is normally linked to the cause.

According to the National Institute of Aging, urinary incontinence can be caused by any of the following:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Constipation
  • Weak bladder muscles
  • Overactive bladder muscles
  • Weak pelvic floor muscles
  • Damage to nerves that control the bladder 
  • Enlarged prostate
  • Diseases that make it difficult to get to the bathroom before the urine leaks out like arthritis
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Certain foods, drinks, and medications that stimulate the bladder

How EMSELLA® Can Treat Incontinence 

EMSELLA® is known as a breakthrough treatment for incontinence and confidence. It’s a completely non-invasive option for those who are suffering from incontinence. 

This revolutionary technology has changed the lives of thousands of men and women suffering from incontinence. In fact, 95% of patients who have been treated with EMSELLA® reported significant improvement in their quality of life, and 75% reported that they’ve reduced their pad use after getting EMSELLA® treatments. 

The effectiveness of EMSELLA® lies in its ability to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. These muscles support the pelvic organs and span the bottom of the pelvis. Patients with incontinence have weakened or have lost control of their bladder. So strengthening the pelvic floor muscles will give patients with incontinence better control of their bladder and bowel. 

Basically, how EMSELLA® works is it uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate deep pelvic floor muscles and restore control of the bladder. A single Emsella session brings thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions equal to doing 10,000 kegel exercises.
