Urinary Incontinence
& Emsella Treatment

Urinary Incontinence & Emsella Treatment

The pelvic floor is a dome-shaped muscular sheet that forms a sling at the base of the pelvis. It functions as a support for the abdomino-pelvic organs like bladder, intestines and uterus.

Weakness of pelvic floor muscles may result in urinary stress incontinence, uterus prolapse and chronic back pain. Some factors that cause pelvic floor to weaken include pregnancy and childbirth; chronic constipation; chronic cough; being overweight; repeated lifting of heavy objects (e.g. carrying grandkids), aging and menopause.

Emsella in Singapore is a new and effective modality of treatment for the common and embarrassing problem of urinary stress incontinence which is timely as the incidence is increasing in tandem with the aging population.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control or an involuntary leakage of urine. It affects more women than men, owing to the structure of the female urinary tract and life events like pregnancy, childbirth and menopause.

What are the Common Types of Urinary Incontinence?

  • Stress Incontinence – Urine leakage caused by increased pressure on the bladder, usually occurring with activities such as laughing, sneezing, coughing and lifting heavy objects. Stress incontinence commonly affects more women than men, especially those who are pregnant or have given birth, due to the increased pressure on the pelvic floor muscles. It is also common with aging and after menopause.
  • Urge Incontinence – Also known as having an overactive bladder, urge incontinence is marked by a sudden and intense urge to pass urine followed by a large volume of urine leakage. It is often a symptom of an underlying bladder problem such as an infection or stones.
  • Total Incontinence – This is a condition in which the bladder is incapable of storing urine, causing urine to pass uncontrollably and continuously. It is the most severe form of incontinence and is caused by problems in the brain, nerves or spinal cord.
  • Functional Incontinence – This is leakage of urine resulting from the inability to reach the toilet in time due to certain physical or mental conditions.
  • Mixed Incontinence – This is when a patient experiences two or more types of urinary incontinence.

What Is the Recommended Treatment for Urinary Incontinence?

Treatments for urinary incontinence depends on the severity and include lifestyle adjustments, medicines and exercises, non-invasive therapy like Emsella and surgical procedures.

Healthcare for Women is pleased to offer the Emsella treatment in Singapore, a non-invasive, FDA-approved and painless urinary incontinence treatment.

What Is Emsella?

Emsella is a non-invasive treatment that treats urinary incontinence and directly targets weak pelvic floor muscles. It comes in the form of a special chair that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to strengthen the deep pelvic floor muscles.
