Incontinence is a common condition that affects millions of people around the world. This condition can impact a person’s quality of life and lead to embarrassment, anxiety, and social isolation. Fortunately, many treatment options are available to help manage and even cure incontinence. One such option is Emsella Urinary Incontinence Treatment, offered by Medimorph Integrative Aesthetic Medicine. Emsella is a non-invasive treatment for incontinence caused by weak pelvic floors. The Emsella chair emits a high-intensity focused electromagnetic wave over a 30-minute session twice weekly for three weeks to create supramaximal contractions throughout the pelvic floor muscles. This treatment is superior to Kegels, a popular exercise to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, as it delivers thousands of supramaximal contractions quickly. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the causes and symptoms of urinary incontinence and the various treatment options available. We’ll also delve into the benefits of Emsella Urinary Incontinence Treatment and how you can get started with this effective solution at Medimorph. So let’s get started!
What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is characterized by the loss of bladder control, which can result in unintentional urine leakage. It is a common problem affecting people of all ages, although it is more prevalent among older adults and women. There are several types of urinary incontinence, including stress, urge, overflow, and mixed incontinence. Stress incontinence occurs when there is pressure on the bladder, such as coughing, sneezing, or exercising. Urge incontinence is characterized by a sudden urge to urinate, followed by an involuntary loss of urine. Overflow incontinence is caused by an inability to empty the bladder, resulting in a constant dribbling of urine. Mixed incontinence is a combination of stress and urge incontinence. The causes of urinary incontinence can vary, including weak pelvic floor muscles, nerve damage, certain medications, urinary tract infections, and neurological disorders. Understanding the underlying cause of incontinence is important to determine the most effective treatment.
Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence
The most apparent symptom of urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine. However, the symptoms can vary depending on the type of incontinence a person is experiencing. For example, stress incontinence may cause urine leakage during physical activities or even coughing or sneezing, while urge incontinence may cause sudden and intense urges to urinate.
Other symptoms of urinary incontinence may include:
- Frequent urination
- Pain or discomfort during urination
- Waking up multiple times at night to urinate
- Feeling a constant need to urinate
- Feeling like the bladder is not completely empty after urination
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, talking to your healthcare provider is important. They can help determine the underlying cause of your incontinence and recommend appropriate treatment options.
Treatment Options for Urinary Incontinence
Several treatment options are available for urinary incontinence, depending on the underlying cause and severity of the condition. Some standard treatment options include:
- Lifestyle changes: Making lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, quitting smoking, and limiting caffeine and alcohol consumption, can help improve incontinence symptoms.
- Pelvic floor exercises: Also known as Kegels, pelvic floor exercises can help strengthen the muscles that control the bladder and improve incontinence symptoms.
- Medications: Certain medications, such as anticholinergics or alpha-blockers, can help improve incontinence symptoms by relaxing the bladder muscles or reducing bladder contractions.
- Medical devices: Pessaries or urethral inserts can help support the bladder and prevent urine leakage.
- Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be recommended to correct structural issues contributing to incontinence, such as a prolapsed bladder.
- Emsella Urinary Incontinence Treatment: Emsella is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic waves to create supramaximal contractions throughout the pelvic floor muscles. This treatment can be an effective option for incontinence caused by weak pelvic floor muscles.

How Does Emsella Urinary Incontinence Treatment Work?
Emsella Urinary Incontinence Treatment uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic waves (HIFEM) to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. The Emsella chair emits these electromagnetic waves over a 30-minute session twice a week for three weeks to create supramaximal contractions throughout the pelvic floor muscles. Patients sit fully clothed on the Emsella chair during the treatment, which resembles a comfortable armchair. The chair emits electromagnetic waves that cause the pelvic floor muscles to contract rapidly and repeatedly, strengthening the muscles and improving bladder control. The electromagnetic waves used in Emsella treatment are safe and have been extensively tested for their effectiveness in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. Unlike other treatments, such as surgery, there is no risk of complications or side effects from Emsella treatment.
