The Matter with the Bladder!
By Kelli Porter, Nurse Practitioner
Recently I was enjoying my latest edition of Southern Living magazine. As I was thumbing through the recipes, gardening section, and the model home layout it occurred to me that I had seen THREE advertisements for incontinence pads. Are we still thinking this is something normal? ….that childbirth and aging cause us to “tinkle” when we laugh, sneeze or get a strong urge?
Ladies…this is not normal. Leaking urine can be caused by many things including infection, GSM (genitourinary syndrome of menopause), or weak pelvic floor. You may not realize that you have an intricate basket of muscles in your pelvis that is responsible for holding in urine, stool, and gas, and for relaxing to eliminate urine, stool, and gas. When these muscles become weak or damaged, leakage can occur. This can be bothersome and can lead to avoidance of certain activities that may contribute to leakage. there are many ways to treat incontinence, but I want to tell you more about a newer option that is really amazing.
The BTL EMSELLA chair
Emsella uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology which causes deep pelvic floor muscle stimulation. A single session provides thousands of contractions which is extremely effective in treating incontinence. This greatly exceeds any contraction from common exercises such as Kegels. Treatments are so easy. You simply sit on the chair and let Emsella do the work. You even get to stay fully clothed. You will experience tingling and pelvic floor muscles’ contractions during the procedure. You may resume daily activities immediately after the treatment. That’s right, no downtime! Your provider will tailor a treatment plan for you. A typical treatment takes about 30 minutes and you will need about 6 sessions, scheduled twice a week.
Women report a 95% improvement in overall well being.
Imagine no more leakage in just 3 weeks. Call us now to schedule a consult with your healthcare provider.
