Happy Man and Woman After Emsella Non-surgical Treatment for Stress Urinary Incontinence

Do you avoid exercising in public, stop yourself from bending over, or cross your legs when you feel a sneeze coming on? If you suffer from stress urinary incontinence (SUI), it’s worth looking into non-invasive treatment with Emsella—a solution that strengthens your pelvic floor with a series of easy 30-minute sessions.

If you are ready to live more comfortably (and avoid adult diapers), here are 4 more reasons to consider Emsella.

  1. Emsella is a non-invasive, non-surgical solution for stress and urge incontinence.
  2. Emsella is for women AND men.
  3. You can’t replicate Emsella results at home.
  4. You will keep your clothes on for Emsella treatments.

1. Emsella is a non-invasive, non-surgical solution for stress and urge incontinence. 

There are two kinds of incontinence that EmSella can help with: stress incontinence, which means that you have small leaks when you laugh, exercise, sneeze, or cough, and urge incontinence, meaning that you have sudden urges to go to the restroom.

About 1 in 3 women develop urinary incontinence in their lifetime, and so do about half that many men. While more advanced cases may require a visit to a urologist, we can effectively treat milder cases in our comfortable, relaxing medical spa without the need for lab tests, embarrassing examinations, medications, or surgery. We’ll design a series of easy treatments (often about 6 sessions) spaced at ideal intervals for your needs.

2. Emsella is for women AND men.

It’s common knowledge that most women experience some degree of SUI as they age, especially those that have experienced childbirth or are going through menopause. But it is also critical for men to receive appropriate treatment for stress urinary incontinence and urges, which commonly afflict older men. These issues also affect men after prostate cancer treatment or other procedures in the pelvic area.

Men and women experience a similar treatment: you’ll be asked to sit comfortably on the Emsella chair—we will help you to position your body to get optimal results. During treatment, you will feel that your pelvic floor muscles are being involuntarily activated. Some patients also report a tingling sensation. Most patients adjust to the experience after a few minutes, and can relax for the duration of the treatment.

3. You can’t replicate Emsella results at home.

Emsella uses electromagnetic waves that are precisely calibrated to stimulate your deeper pelvic floor muscles. This stimulation “re-educates” weakened muscles, and helps with neuromuscular control. While it is often said that the chair performs the equivalent of thousands of Kegels, it actually stimulates muscles on a deeper level than you can activate on your own through exercise.

4. You will keep your clothes on for Emsella treatments.

When it comes to treating problems “down there,” we’re used to being asked to strip down and wear a paper gown. Not so with Emsella! You can wear your normal clothes to your appointments and will simply sit on the Emsella chair to receive treatment. Each session takes about 30 minutes—you can read a book, catch up on your favorite podcast, or even talk on the phone while you wait.
