Would you wait six years to see a doctor about treatment for a persistent cough? Many women wait years before addressing their bladder leakage or urinary incontinence problems with their doctor. With many hoping that committing to Kegel exercises will solve the problem, only to be disappointed.
For lots of women who suffer from bladder leakage following pregnancy or child birth, or from menopause or ageing, rehabilitation therapy involving pelvic floor exercises is often the first step to treatment. If, and quite often when that fails, the next option has previously been surgery which is not suitable for everyone. Now we have Emsella non-surgical high-intensity electromagnetic therapy for the treatment of urinary incontinence.
What Is Emsella Chair?
Emsella is cutting-edge technology that uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy focused on the pelvis to stimulate thousands of muscle contractions in each treatment. The treatment strengthens the pelvic floor muscles, thus increasing bladder control.
Treatment is as easy as sitting on a chair. You remain fully clothed for the treatment.
Emsella Treatment Frequently Asked Questions
When should I consider treatment for a bladder control problem?
When the condition affects your sleep by waking you frequently in the night, when it restricts the type of activities that you do, impacts your confidence or causes stress or anxiety.
What does the Emsella treatment feel like?
It is a comfortable treatment. Simply sit on the Emsella Chair, fully clothed and the treatment stimulates thousands of muscle contractions.
How long does treatment take?
Each session takes half an hour.
How many treatments will I need?
A standard course is two 30 minute sessions per week, for three weeks. A total of 6 sessions over 3 weeks.
How long until I see/ feel results?
Many patients feel a benefit after the first treatment with results improving over the three weeks of treatment, however everyone is different.
Does Emsella treatment replace Kegel exercises or pelvic floor exercises?
Kegel or pelvic floor exercises cannot achieve the intensity or number of muscle contractions that the Emsella achieves in a 30 minute session, therefore Emsella is considered more effective.
Are there any side effects?
There are no side effects from treatment. Electromagnetic technology has been used in the medical industry for many years (MRI scans for example).
Am I suitable for this treatment?
Your suitability for treatment will be determined during your complimentary consultation with Dr Diana. As this technology relies on magnets, anyone with metal implants or a pacemaker cannot have this treatment. If you have an implanted contraceptive device, you may not be suitable for treatment. Dr Diana has multiple treatment options for incontinence and vaginal tightening.
