A BREAKTHROUGH TREATMENT FOR INCONTINENCE.
Just like every other part of the body, the vagina changes with age, but additional decline in vaginal health may be caused by two major events in a woman’s life. Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and surrounding tissue. This stretching damages the vaginal walls and weakens the pelvic floor. These tissues may not return to the same state as before childbirth and can result in varying degrees of urinary stress incontinence – the involuntary leakage of urine that occurs with sneezing, coughing, exercising, or other physical activity.
Additionally, menopause is a time of change in a woman’s life. One of the many changes a woman may notice is increased difficulty controlling her bladder. Most commonly, symptoms are urinary frequency (constantly needing to go to the toilet) or urgency (needing to get to the toilet in a hurry or not making it there in time). The onset of menopause can cause your pelvic floor muscles – just like the rest of the muscles in your body – to weaken. These muscles support the pelvic organs, which means that the weakening of these muscles can result in pelvic floor problems.
The floor of the pelvis is made up of layers of muscle and other tissues. These layers stretch like a hammock from the tailbone at the back, to the pubic bone at the front. A woman’s pelvic floor muscles support her bladder, uterus (womb) and bowel (colon). The urethra (urine tube), the vagina, and the rectum (back passage) all pass through the pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor muscles help control your bladder and bowel. They may also help sexual function. It is vital to keep your pelvic floor muscles strong.
We know that doing Kegel exercises can help strengthen the pelvic floor, however this can be challenging as most women do not know how to generate a proper Kegel contraction, or are able to adhere to a daily Kegel routine that would result in any significant improvement. With the EMSella™ chair, you are doing 11,000 supra maximal Kegels in 28 minutes.
If you have mild -moderate leakage or a strong “gotta go” urge feeling, a non-pharmaceutical option is available for you. It is totally non-invasive, staying clothed for the entirety of the treatment. The EMSella™ chair is an FDA-approved treatment for overactive bladder, urinary incontinence and can improve sexual function. It is a great option for women who desire to improve their bladder control and quality of life.
We are proud to offer the EMSella™ chair for our Okanagan patients here at Restore Vein and Skin Centre.
