Emsella Q & A
What is Emsella?
Emsella is a non-invasive treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate thousands of pelvic floor muscle contractions.
While you sit on the Emsella chair, the contractions help to strengthen pelvic floor muscles, improving bladder control and reducing urinary incontinence.
Why might I need Emsella for urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is a condition in which the bladder involuntarily releases small amounts of urine whenever pressure is applied. Coughing, sneezing, laughing, or moving in any way that causes the muscles of the bladder to relax might cause an accident.
This often occurs due to:
- Changes from vaginal birth
- Enlarged prostate
- Kidney stones
- Prostate cancer
- Urinary tract infection (UTI)
You might choose Emsella to treat your urinary incontinence for a number of reasons. If you’ve tried conservative approaches like pelvic floor exercises (kegels), but still find that you have a hard time controlling your bladder, you may want to try Emsella.
Emsella is also a non-invasive treatment, which means it requires no surgery and minimal downtime to improve urinary incontinence.
What are the benefits of Emsella?
Many patients find relief with Emsella, when other treatment options haven’t helped them find relief from their urinary incontinence. Some of the benefits that Emsella offers include:
- Minimal downtime and recovery
- Reduce the need for invasive procedures, like sling surgery
- Relief from other chronic problems like lower back pain
- Enhanced sex life (more orgasms in both men and women)
Both men and women might benefit from Emsella treatment. Emsella is an FDA-approved device for urinary incontinence.
What can I expect from Emsella treatment?
Before you begin Emsella treatment, Dr. Woods performs an in-depth evaluation to determine the cause of your urinary incontinence.
Diagnosis begins with a discussion of your symptoms and medical history and a physical exam. Dr. Woods then uses the information he learns to determine the root cause and if Emsella is the right treatment for you.
When you come into the office for Emsella, you sit on a chair while the device delivers electromagnetic energy to stimulate your pelvic floor muscles. You remain fully-clothed and sit on the chair for about 30 minutes.
During treatment, you might feel a tuggling or pulling feeling on your bladder. However, this typically resolves after treatment. Most patients need Emsella treatment twice per week for three weeks.
