Stress urinary incontinence affects many of us after a certain age—it’s a normal part of life! Many who suffer from this frustrating problem also experience strong urges, which can be equally difficult to manage. But as common as these problems are, you do not have to live with them. Here’s how treatment with Emsella can help.
The pelvic floor is the bowl shaped group of muscles in the pelvis that supports the pelvic organs, including the bladder. The pelvic floor muscles can weaken over time, due to trauma, or with childbirth, leading to leakage of urine in response to pressure on the bladder. This leakage is known as stress urinary incontinence.
There are two kinds of urinary incontinence, both of which can compromise your quality of life:
And for many of our clients, there is a third kind of incontinence: a combination of both stress and urge incontinence. Emsella treatments help with stress, urge, and mixed incontinence.
A strong pelvic floor, particularly when combined with a strong core, has benefits above and beyond improving urinary incontinence. Our unique Core to Floor approach to strengthening the entire lower abdomen helps to enhance your athletic performance, quality of life, and sexual health. We will discuss your options for combining Emsella with abdominal and gluteal muscle strengthening when we meet with you about your Emsella treatment in your initial appointment.
