Women of all ages in Oak Park and North Riverside, Illinois, trust Dr. Lyndon Taylor of Healthcare for Women to help them with all their OB/GYN needs. But that’s not all. Some of our patients have urinary incontinence (aka bladder leakage). You know what we’re talking about. One minute you’re out with friends and having a good time, then all of a sudden you laugh too hard and it happens.
Don’t worry, because there’s something you can do about it. We offer a life-changing, noninvasive treatment in our office called BTL Emsella™ which can help you regain your confidence and lessen the chance of having an “accident.”
If urine leaks out when you exercise, laugh, sneeze, or cough, you have what’s known as stress incontinence. These actions put pressure on your bladder, causing some urine to come out. It’s common and doesn’t mean there’s something seriously wrong.
Causes of stress incontinence include:
If you have experienced any of these conditions, your pelvic floor muscles may have weakened, making it harder to control your bladder.
BTL Emsella is an innovative, noninvasive treatment approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for stress and urge incontinence. During the treatment you sit fully clothed, on a large, specially designed chair that delivers painless high-frequency electromagnetic waves to your pelvic floor and surrounding muscles. You may feel tingling and thousands of small contractions during the session, similar to doing Kegel exercises. In fact, one 28-minute session delivers 11,200 stimulations. That’s a lot of Kegels!
By forcing the pelvic muscles and surrounding muscles to contract, they grow stronger. This allows you to regain control and stop leakage. For best results, Dr. Taylor recommends a total of six sessions — two per week for three weeks. It doesn’t hurt and doesn’t have any side effects. You can go back to work or get back to your daily routine right after your appointment. Many of our patients report a significant decrease in leakage and a much better quality of life.
