'I'm Incontinent In My Forties Please Help!'
Updated: Oct 27, 2020
Incontinence in young women and those who are older is extremely common in the UK. Despite this, it is rarely talked about among us and in public. Why? Are those who have it embarrassed or are they feeling anxious about the limitations this causes in their daily lives. If only we talked about this taboo subject more, we would all realise how common it is!
Those who have given birth and are post part are often left with some form of incontince. As we get older our bladder function declines and we are much less able to 'hold our water' for long periods of time. This means during simple tasks such as coughing, exercise and laughing can cause a dribble or urine or perhaps a larger amount causing extreme embarrassment and the need to be prepared with incontinence pads wherever we need to go.
Unfortunately there are not many options for the GP to recommend to those suffering from stress or urge urinary incontinence. Thankfully, however, there is a solution. The Emsella chair enables us to tackle this problem. As a walk-in walk-out procedure it is easy, quick and painless. It uses HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Frequencies) to target the pelvic floor muscles and those at the neck of the bladder. A thirty minute session sitting on our Emsella chair is the same as nearly 12,000 pelvic floor muscles!
During the course of 4-6 treatments you will notice a change in your bladder habits and this can improve confidence and become life-changing for some individuals left with severe urinary incontinence from any such reason. This treatment is revolutionary and is a breakthrough for those left with no options for treatment.
