Emsella pelvic floor therapy is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that strengthens the muscles in your pelvic floor. The treatment is administered while you sit in an electromagnetic chair.
You are fully clothed during treatment. You sit comfortably in the Emsella chair, and it does the rest. The treatment is completely painless, and the intensity of the electromagnetic waves can be adjusted.
In a 28-minute session, the electromagnetic force contracts your pelvic muscles over 11,000 times. Can you imagine doing all of these Kegel exercises? Emsella sessions are typically scheduled over twice per week for three weeks for a total of 6 sessions.
Why do I need Emsella pelvic floor therapy?
Emsella pelvic floor therapy is most commonly used to assist women who have stress urinary incontinence as a result of a weak pelvic floor. Emsella treatment also strengthens the pelvic floor enough to correct pelvic prolapse and vaginal laxity.
How long does it take to see a difference?
While results vary, many women report seeing improvement after only one session. You’ll notice more progress after each treatment (totally 6 sessions).
How does Emsella feel?
The treatment is completely painless. However, as you sit in the electromagnetic chair, you may feel a tingling sensation in your pelvic area as the treatment contracts the muscles repeatedly.
There is no downtime with Emsella because it is noninvasive. When your session is finished, you can resume your normal activities.
How is Emsella pelvic floor therapy different than doing Kegels?
When performing Kegel exercises, you contract your pelvic muscles as if you were cutting off your urine flow. You contract the muscle for a few seconds, then release and repeat.
Emsella therapy works much more effectively than you can to contract your pelvic floor muscles. Emsella treatments cause your pelvic muscles to contract more than 11,000 times per session. This high volume of contractions strengthens your pelvic floor faster than doing the exercises on your own.
What factors contribute to a weak pelvic floor?
Childbirth is the leading cause of pelvic floor weakness and stress incontinence in women. Other factors that contribute include:
- Heavy lifting at work or the gym
- A chronic cough or sneezing
- Injury to the pelvic region
- Chronic constipation
