People don’t often talk about pelvic floor health as it is more intimate and a significant cause of worry for both men and women. It often brings along concerns with the stigma attached to it. Urinary incontinence, pelvic prolapse, and vaginal disorders are common disorders. Urinary incontinence is a common health problem affecting 200 million people worldwide. It is the inability to hold urine and control your bladder. You might have urinary incontinence if you leak when you laugh, sneeze, cough, or exercise. If one experiences it during a social or professional event, it can cause significant embarrassment. And what causes it can be many different reasons; however, some of them could be age-related changes, neurological disorders, pregnancy, menopause, hysterectomy in women, and more.
What is BTL Emsella®?
It is a non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence. It is an advanced medical device that looks just like a chair. It uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions in your pelvic region. These contractions help pelvic floor muscles to become stronger and tighter.
How does BTL Emsella® Works?
You must know that pelvic floor muscles support the pelvic floor organs and control continence. However, natural body aging, childbirth, and menopause can cause this group of muscles to become dysfunctional, resulting in incontinence such as urine leaks while coughing or sneezing.
BTL EMSELLA treatment uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Energy (HIFEM) to strengthen all the pelvic floor muscles and not just the ones that can be exercised with voluntary contractions (Kegel exercises). When the pelvic floor muscles become more robust, it helps with continence problems and gives the confidence to continue normal day-to-day activities without losing bladder control.
Each session is 28-minute where you sit comfortably on the Emsella chair while it generates thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions. Do you know each session is equivalent to doing 11000 pelvic floor exercises but without any hard work!
It is a non-surgical procedure without any medications to remain fully clothed. Meanwhile, you may experience some tingling sensation while sitting on the chair. There is no downtime, and the patient can resume their normal day-to-day activities immediately after the session. Some people require six sessions over three weeks to see results, whereas others may experience effects in two or three treatment sessions.
