Isn’t urinary incontinence so frustrating?? You’re in a meeting and you suddenly sneeze. Or, maybe you are at a business lunch and someone makes you laugh. Or maybe you get a cold and can’t stop coughing. You are always near a bathroom and I mean always. All of these scenarios can be a nightmare for someone with urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is leakage of urine when you sneeze, laugh, or cough. It can come on if you are jogging or doing anything high impact like High Fitness. It’s basically leakage that you can’t control, no matter how hard you try. It’s impossible to avoid every scenario that could cause you to have an accident. This problem can be frustrating because it affects how you live your life every single day.
You may feel that there’s no way to get past this issue! If you feel that way, know that it is not true. Any doctor would tell you that you can make a number of different lifestyle changes that can help with this problem. For example, you could limit caffeine, alcohol, and smoking. Losing weight helps. You can avoid putting stress on your pelvic floor muscles. For example, you can avoid lifting heavy things, avoid sit ups, and high impact exercise. You can do pilates instead. You can eat better and get more fiber and do all you can to avoid straining when emptying your bowls. You can also do Kegel exercises, which contract the pelvic floor muscles.
But perhaps you have tried these things and still are struggling with leakage. We are really excited to tell you about a new technology we are offering at Trilogy that has helped a lot of people with this issue. It is the Emsella Incontinence Chair. Have you heard of it?
It’s actually a chair you sit on that sends HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) waves through your body. These energy waves causes your pelvic floor to contract—again and again and again. In a 30 minute session, your body can do over 11,000 pelvic floor contractions (or Kegels). Each Kegel strengthens your pelvic floor and helps you to control your bladder better.
Even if you were concentrating, you could never do 11,000 Kegels in 30 minutes on your own. That’s what is so amazing about the Emsella Incontinence Chair. You can dramatically increase the strength of your muscles. And the best part is that you can sit on the Emsella fully clothed for a treatment.
Treatments are so easy. You sit down for 30 minutes. That’s it. Make sure to bring a podcast to listen to while you are there. You will feel your muscles contracting but the treatment is not painful. You will notice improvements after one session but 4 sessions over 2 weeks is recommended for the maximum benefit. The Emsella doesn’t require downtime and has no side effects.
