Nonsurgical Treatments for Urinary Incontinence

Nonsurgical Treatments for Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence is often a result of a weak pelvic floor. Fortunately, you can avoid surgery with these treatments. Read on to learn more.

Urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction are just two of the many pelvic symptoms of aging. These symptoms can be the result of a weak pelvic floor that has withstood the stresses of pregnancy, childbirth, hormone imbalance, and menopause.

Not every form of urinary incontinence results in the same symptoms. Urge incontinence means you experience frequent and strong urges to urinate, often unexpectedly. Stress incontinence makes it difficult to hold in your urine and causes intermittent leaking, especially when coughing, sneezing, or laughing. 

Marc Concepcion, DO, and the team at RBMA Wellness Center in West Sacramento, California, are here to treat your urinary challenges. If you don’t have the same level of bladder control you had during your younger years, there are plenty of treatments worth exploring to make it to the toilet every time. 

Manage your incontinence with Emsella

Urinary incontinence sometimes requires invasive or surgical care, including urethral catheters. Emsella® offers a solution without the discomfort, healing time, and adjustment periods that come with using catheters, collection bags, and other devices for urinary incontinence management. 

Emsella treatments rely on energy instead of incisions or implants. The state-of-the-art device targets your pelvic floor muscles, stimulating strong contractions using high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM+). This form of energy uses alternating magnetic fields to elicit a response in targeted muscles. It provides the equivalent of 11,000 kegels per session.

Emsella’s unique muscle contractions give your pelvic floor the workout it needs to continue supporting your bladder, urethra, and other structures in your urinary system. The same technology is used in treatments that contour your body by defining or increasing your muscle mass. 

With better control over your urine, your quality of life improves. You can attend meetings, sporting events, family gatherings, and romantic dates without fear of an embarrassing dribble.  

Your personalized treatment 

Though Emsella is a successful treatment for many cases of urinary incontinence, the treatment isn’t one-size-fits-all. Your RBMA Wellness Center provider customizes your care plan with improved results after every Emsella session. Most nonsurgical treatment plans for urinary incontinence include two 30-minute sessions per week for three weeks, along with other nonsurgical recommendations like:

  • Kegel exercises
  • Healthy diet
  • Medications
  • Weight management recommendations

Our RBMA Wellness Center team supports you as you strengthen your pelvic floor to accomplish your goals. 

Extra benefits of Emsella treatment

Emsella does more than target the muscles involved in stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence. The treatment’s remarkable mechanism gives you more control over all of the organs supported by the pelvic floor, which can lead to enhanced sexual function. You might also enjoy cutting down on or eliminating the use of panty liners, pads, or adult diapers to manage incontinence.
