Emsella, Urinary Incontinence Treatment, West Malling, Kent
Emsella offers a highly effective, non-invasive solution for individuals of all ages, both women and men, who seek to address urinary incontinence and enhance their intimate life. Various factors, such as natural ageing, childbirth, or menopause, can lead to a weakening of the pelvic floor muscles, resulting in urinary incontinence and reduced satisfaction in intimate experiences. It is important to prioritise pelvic floor health regardless of age.
The Emsella Chair has received FDA approval as a treatment option. It employs (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) frequencies to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles deeply to strengthen weakened pelvic floor muscles, restore bladder control, and eradicate urinary incontinence for good.
In just one session, Emsella induces thousands of contractions similar to Kegel exercises, effectively training the muscles without requiring any exertion. Extensive scientific research reveals that 95% of individuals with incontinence experienced significant improvements in their daily lives, and an 85% improvement in overall intimate satisfaction was observed.
Understanding urinary incontinence
Urinary incontinence refers to the unintentional release of urine, often caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles. These muscles play a crucial role in supporting pelvic organs and maintaining continence. There are three distinct types of urinary incontinence:
- Stress incontinence: This occurs when pressure is exerted on the bladder, leading to urine leakage. Common triggers include coughing, laughing, sneezing, or physical exercise.
- Urge incontinence: Characterised by sudden and intense urges to urinate frequently, often resulting in involuntary leakage.
- Mixed incontinence: This type involves a combination of both stress and urge incontinence.
Various physiological changes, such as vaginal delivery, menopause, and the natural ageing process, can contribute to the development of urinary incontinence by causing a decline in the strength of pelvic floor muscles. And, for many sufferers of incontinence, when you go out, you may have to plan your day around managing your symptoms, including where the nearest toilet is at all times, whether you have enough pads and what kind of clothes you should wear. It can also stop people from taking part in their hobbies and the things they enjoy doing, like sports and social activities.
Strengthening these muscles is essential for symptom improvement and with Emsella, you can achieve this quicker and more effectively than ever before.
