A Novel Treatment for Female Urinary Incontinence
Emsella is a new treatment for women with incontinence, a common problem affecting over 19 million women in the United States. The treatment involves the use of HIFEM technology to treat and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. The Emsella device is shaped like a chair, so patients can sit to receive their treatment. They do not have to remove their clothes and can walk in and walk out without any invasive procedure. The HIFEM technology emits focused electromagnetic energy that induces supramaximal muscular contractions in the pelvic floor region. This deep muscle stimulation offers benefits over Kegel exercises. The procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of urinary incontinence in women.
The treatment involves at least six sessions which are performed twice a week over a three-week period. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes. The treatment has been shown to strengthen muscles, increase blood flow, help restore neuromuscular control, and increase the production of collagen and elastin, in addition to strengthening the muscles.
About Urinary Incontinence
The most common causes of urinary incontinence in women include childbirth-related complications and menopause. Half of the women who struggle with this condition do not seek treatment, but the condition negatively impacts their quality of life. Emsella is a breakthrough treatment for which there are no comparable alternatives currently on the market. If you have urinary incontinence that you believe is related to weak pelvic muscles or neuromuscular control of these muscles, please contact our office for a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for the treatment.
