Incontinence is an embarrassing condition in which an individual loses complete control over their bladder and bowel functions. Incontinence leads to an involuntary release of waste, typically urine, and often results from weakened pelvic floor muscles. At Spa West, we offer an innovative and revolutionary new treatment called Emsella that can help treat incontinence by reversing the condition and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
What Is Emsella?
Emsella is a treatment specifically designed for women who suffer from incontinence. This non-invasive treatment can strengthen the pelvic floor and, in doing so, increase bladder and bowel control.
This treatment uses electromagnetic energy to force the pelvic floor muscles to contract thousands of times during a single 30-minute treatment session. These repetitive contractions help the muscles relearn how to perform the necessary support functions to prevent incontinence.
What Are the Pelvic Floor Muscles?
The pelvic floor muscles are responsible for providing support to a woman’s uterus, bladder, and bowels. These muscles also play a part in sexual function. This band of muscles stretches from the pubic bone to the tailbone, and the muscles in this region include the following:
- The puborectalis muscles
- The pubococcygeus muscles
- The iliococcygeus muscles
- The coccygeus muscles
Why Are They Important?
The pelvic floor muscles are important supportive muscles, so when they aren’t as strong as they should be, other body areas are affected, including the bladder and bowel. If you suffer from incontinence, weakened pelvic floor muscles may be to blame.
Additionally, not only do these muscles provide support for the bowel, bladder, and uterus, but they are important to keep strengthened and healthy to prevent prolapse. These muscles also play an important role in healthy sexual function.
What Weakens the Pelvic Floor Muscles?
There are many different factors that can weaken the pelvic floor muscles over time. Some of the most common reasons why the pelvic floor muscles begin to weaken are the aging process, one pregnancy or multiple pregnancies, obesity, chronic cough, constipation, or not living an active lifestyle. Regardless of why you have experienced a weakened pelvic floor, Emsella can help strengthen the muscles in a quick, 30-minute breakthrough, non-invasive treatment.
The Problem With Incontinence
If you suffer from incontinence, you probably have lost the motivation to go to the gym and perform your normal daily activities for fear of embarrassment. There are three different types of incontinence. Stress incontinence is caused by exerted force on the bladder, typically resulting from specific actions, including exercise, sneezing, coughing, or laughing. Urge incontinence doesn’t result from activities or actions but instead simply is the sudden, unexpected urge to urinate. Mixed incontinence is a type of incontinence in which individuals experience a mix of both stress incontinence and urge incontinence.
The Importance of Treating Incontinence
Since incontinence gradually progresses over time, it’s important that you take the steps to treat and reverse incontinence, and you can do exactly that with Emsella treatment sessions. This treatment can reverse incontinence by forcing the pelvic floor muscles to contract, strengthening the entire area. Once you experience the results that accompany this treatment, you’ll realize just how life-changing those results really are.
How Does Emsella Strengthen the Pelvic Floor Muscles?
This treatment can improve both overall health and wellness and intimate health and wellness by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and, in doing so, helping individuals finally overcome incontinence.
The primary goal of this treatment is to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles to resolve and reverse incontinence, but it will also help improve sexual function. By simply strengthening these muscles, those who have suffered from incontinence and decreased sexual function can experience life-changing results that come after completing the recommended number of treatment sessions.
