Suffering From Stress Incontinence? There is a Non-Surgical Solution
If you’re suffering from stress incontinence you’ll know just how life-restricting it can be.
When any sudden laugh, sneeze or movement can cause an embarrassing accident, it can be hard to go out, relax and enjoy your life. If you find yourself turning down invitations or missing out on your favourite sports because of your bladder control, then it could be time to look for a solution.
More than 40% of women struggle with some form of urinary incontinence at some stage of their life, with a third of these suffering from stress incontinence. Making it one of the most common intimate health problems in women. Despite the prevalence of this condition, most women don’t seek medical help and instead adjust their lives and activities to accommodate the problem.
It’s not just an embarrassing, life-restricting condition – but it can be a costly one too!
It’s important that incontinence pads are changed regularly, so most women go through 4-6 pads per day. Add that up over the year and you’re looking at a cost of around £850 per year!
But there is a solution.
What Is Stress Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence comes in three forms: stress incontinence, urge incontinence and combined incontinence.
Stress incontinence is an embarrassing condition in which urine can leak out of your bladder when under pressure. Simple actions such as laughing, coughing, sneezing, lifting, bending and even sex can result in a leak.
It’s much more common in women but can occur in some men especially following prostate surgery.
While it’s generally not a painful condition, stress incontinence can have a huge impact on your quality of life. Many people shy away from activities that may cause a leak or avoid situations in which they would feel embarrassed.
This, in turn, can lead to anxiety, depression and other mental health struggles too.
What Causes Stress Incontinence?
Stress incontinence tends to occur when the muscles that support the urethra and control the release of urine weaken. This can be due to pregnancy, childbirth, age or weight problems.
Usually, your pelvic floor muscles and your urinary sphincter control the flow of urine. Keeping it in your bladder until you consciously choose to release it in the bathroom.
When these muscles weaken they can no longer control the flow of urine effectively, resulting in leaks whenever your bladder is put under pressure.
In previous decades, the only solutions available for stress incontinence were pads, pelvic floor exercises, medical devices such as urethral inserts – and in extreme cases – surgery.
But now there is another solution.
BTL Emsella Chair – A Non-Surgical Solution For Stress Incontinence
This breakthrough treatment for stress incontinence harnesses the power of electromagnetic therapy to induce thousands of pelvic floor muscle contractions – gently strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and returning them to full function.
It’s fast, effective and works on the actual cause of the problem, creating a permanent and non-invasive solution. In fact, 95% of people who tried the BTL Emsella Chair for urinary incontinence reported a reduction in their symptoms and improvement in their quality of life.
How BTL Emsella Chair Works
Most stress incontinence is caused by weakness in the pelvic floor muscles. The BTL Emsella Chair uses electromagnetic energy to contract these muscles on a supramaximal level. This strengthens and tones your pelvic floor and also triggers the body’s natural production processes to create new muscle fibres and proteins.
But that’s not all. It also improves the neuromuscular links between the brain and the bladder, giving you better bladder control and less chance of unwanted accidents.
You might be thinking “If it just strengthens the pelvic floor then surely I can do that myself at home with kegel exercises?”
Well, in some ways you are right – but you won’t get the same results.
With the BTL Emsella Chair, the muscles are given a workout equivalent to 11,000 kegel exercises per treatment session! You can’t do that at home in half an hour!
What Happens in a Treatment Session?
In a treatment session, you’ll be asked to sit on the Emsella chair for around 30 minutes. Because the treatment works on the pelvic floor muscles directly, and doesn’t require you to physically contract the muscles yourself, that’s pretty much all you have to do – the chair will do the rest!
One of the best things about BTL Emsella Chair treatment is that it’s totally non-invasive and dignified. No one needs to view or examine your private parts and you can use the chair fully clothed, making it a great choice if you’re a little uncomfortable with invasive or personal treatments.
Does It Hurt?
Not only is the BTL Emsella Chair non-surgical, non-invasive and highly-effective but it’s pain-free too!
Most people say that they can feel their muscles contracting and relaxing but they experience no pain or discomfort at all.
Is It Safe?
Unlike surgery and medical devices that can carry the risk of serious complications, the BTL Emsella Chair offers a very safe alternative solution.
This FDA approved treatment is considered to be very safe, with no serious side effects or complications recorded. Some people may experience some sensitivity in the pelvic region immediately following the procedure, but this is usually not uncomfortable and resolves very quickly.
How Much Does Treatment Cost?
Pelvic floor surgery is painful and not always available on the NHS. If you have to go private you’ll find yourself paying somewhere between £5000-6000.
Stress incontinence treatment with the BTL Emsella Chair is much more affordable. Most people require between 4-6 treatments to get the best results which cost only around £1500 – a much more attainable budget for many people here in the UK.
So Is BTL Emsella The Right Treatment For Your Stress Incontinence?
As you can see, BTL Emsella is a great way to strengthen your pelvic floor and give you back control over your bladder. Eliminating leaks and making you feel confident that you can enjoy life again, without risking embarrassing yourself should a sudden sneeze or fit of laughter occur!
It’s safe, quick, affordable and offers you an excellent way to solve your stress incontinence without invasive procedures.
