Urinary Incontinence (women)
The most common type of female urinary incontinence is leakage of urine with coughing, sneezing, jumping, and sometimes even with laughing. This is called stress urinary incontinence or SUI.
At Pasadena Pellet Therapy we now have the EMSELLA chair, a new and amazingly effective and simple treatment for SUI.
What causes SUI?
SUI is due to a weakening of the pelvic floor and pelvic floor muscles. Kegel exercises can be effective for mild cases. But many women who try Kegel's give up due to lack of time, or forgetting to do them, or they didn't seem to make much difference.
What is EMSELLA?
The pelvic floor muscles support the pelvic floor organs and control continence. However, natural body aging, childbirth and/or menopause can cause this group of muscles to weaken resulting in continence problems such as leaking urine when coughing or sneezing.
The BTL EMSELLA treatment uses High Intensity Focused ElectroMagnetic Energy (HIFEM) to stimulate and strengthen all the pelvic floor muscles, not just the ones that can be exercised with voluntary contractions (Kegel exercises). These stronger pelvic floor muscles can restore continence and the confidence to enjoy normal daily activities without fear of losing bladder control.
What is the EMSELLA treatment like?
During each 28-minute session you sit comfortably on the EMSELLA chair while it generates thousands of strong pelvic floor muscle contractions. Each session is equivalent to doing 11,000 pelvic floor exercises but without the hard work! Generally, six sessions over a 3-week time frame is recommended.
The procedure is non-invasive, and you remain fully clothed (or partly unclothed) throughout. No medication is required and the most you will feel is a slight tingling during the treatment.
With no recovery time needed you can leave immediately after each session and resume normal daily activity.
