Incontinence Treatment Information

 

What are the different types of incontinence?

The two most common types of urinary incontinence are:

Urge incontinence

Urge incontinence occurs when you have a sudden, very strong need to urinate. As a result, you can’t hold it in and you leak urine, sometimes while you’re on the way to the bathroom.

Stress incontinence

This is the most common type of incontinence in women younger than 65. It can even affect young college athletes while they’re engaged in sports.

When you have stress incontinence, you leak urine when stress is placed on your bladder. Laughing, coughing, sneezing, and exercising commonly cause this kind of pressure.

You can also have mixed incontinence, which is when you have urge and stress incontinence at the same time.

What causes urinary incontinence?

In some cases, your urinary incontinence may be a temporary problem caused by a urinary tract infection, eating spicy foods, or drinking caffeinated beverages.

However, when incontinence persists, it’s due to weak urethral muscles or pelvic floor muscles, or in some cases, both. These muscles are typically weakened by:

  • Menopause: loss of estrogen at menopause causes weak urinary tract muscles
  • Childbirth: pelvic floor muscles are stretched and weakened during vaginal delivery
  • Natural aging: pelvic floor muscles lose strength and tone as you get older

The pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that essentially form a sling across the bottom of your pelvis, holding your bladder and uterus in place. The muscles that control urine flow are also part of the pelvic floor muscles.

How does EMSELLA treat urinary incontinence?

There are several traditional medical treatments for urinary incontinence that meet with varied degrees of success, but now you have a new and more effective option, EMSELLA.

Dr. Lee is passionate about the excellent results achieved with EMSELLA. It looks like a chair — and your treatment consists of simply sitting in the chair — but it uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate all the muscles in your pelvic floor at one time.

One session with EMSELLA delivers thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, a number comparable to thousands of Kegels for all your pelvic floor muscles.

With EMSELLA, your pelvic floor muscles contract with more intensity and frequency than you could ever achieve with Kegel exercises. It also works more muscles than you can target with routine Kegels. As EMSELLA strengthens all of your pelvic floor muscles, you regain neuromuscular control of your urine flow and eliminate incontinence.

The chair is painless and completely noninvasive, as you sit in it fully clothed. One session only takes 28 minutes. After six treatments spaced over three weeks, 95% of women are satisfied with their results.
