What is EMSELLA?
There are a number of factors that can cause urinary incontinence or loss of bladder control, but a weakened pelvic floor is a major culprit. The pelvic floor may be weakened by aging, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, an enlarged prostate, and more. While there are effective medications for urinary incontinence, many patients want to avoid the possible side effects these medications can cause. At BioWell Therapeutics, Dr. Daniel Skinner and his team offer a ground-breaking, noninvasive treatment to dramatically reduce urinary incontinence without medications or invasive surgery: EMSELLA. This comfortable, innovative treatment is as simple as sitting on a chair while gentle electric pulses work to naturally strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. If stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overflow incontinence, or any kind of urinary incontinence affects your quality of life, contact our Huntsville, AL office today to learn more about EMSELLA treatments and set up a consultation.
Am I A Good Candidate For EMSELLA?
You may be an excellent candidate for EMSELLA treatments for incontinence if you:
- Experience an inability to stop urinary leakage
- Urinate when you laugh, cough, or sneeze forcefully
- Find it difficult to get to the bathroom on time
- Have to urinate immediately once the sensation alerts you
- Take frequent bathroom breaks during the day to avoid accidents
If you have a bleeding disorder, are pregnant, or have any surgical implants in your body (such as an IUD, a pacemaker, or any other electronic or metal implant), you are not eligible for EMSELLA sessions. If you have any questions about your eligibility for an EMSELLA treatment plan, we invite you to call BioWell Therapeutics to set up a consultation.
How Does EMSELLA Work?
EMSELLA works to reduce urinary incontinence and the feeling of urgency by inducing thousands of muscle contractions in the pelvic floor via safe and effective electromagnetic energy. These contractions strengthen the pelvic floor muscles giving you greater urinary control and an increased feeling of comfort. An EMSELLA treatment at our Huntsville, AL facility is quick and easy with no necessary preparation. You simply come into the office and sit on the EMSELLA platform fully clothed. During the 30-minute session, you may feel a slight tingling or tightening sensation as the gentle electromagnetic energy causes your pelvic floor muscles to contract thousands of times.
What Should I Expect Following An EMSELLA Treatment?
When you're done with the EMSELLA session, you'll be able to go right back to your regular routine with no downtime or recovery period. Dr. Skinner will work with you to create a personalized EMSELLA treatment plan, but on average, most patients will see the best results with 1 – 2 treatments a week for six weeks. Some patients may see results after their first session, but most will see improving results over the following weeks as their pelvic floor muscles strengthen. Between treatments, there may be changes you can make to assist in decreasing your incidents of incontinence. You may want to change your diet to limit or eliminate foods that are natural diuretics, cut back on the number of caffeinated beverages you consume, schedule regular bathroom breaks, and ask your doctor if any of your medications are contributing to your incontinence issues.
