Why You Should Use the EMsella Chair After Pregnancy

Why You Should Use the EMsella Chair After Pregnancy

After pregnancy it is common for the pelvic floor muscles to weaken. Pelvic floor muscles are the layer of muscles that support the pelvic organs and span the bottom of the pelvis. When these muscles weaken from pregnancy and childbirth, internal organs like the bladder and uterus lose support. This leads to incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and sexual dysfunction. Many doctors recommend doing Kegel exercises to keep these muscles. Yet, these exercises can be difficult to do long enough or frequently enough to have a real impact.

Fortunately, EMsella kegel chair therapy helps women strengthen their lax pelvic floor muscles after having one or multiple children. This revolutionary treatment uses an FDA- cleared chair that delivers rapid electromagnetic contractions to the pelvic muscles. As a result, EMsella strengthens the pelvic floor, and common issues such as urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse improve.

Keep reading to learn more about pelvic floor problems, the different methods available for rebuilding the pelvic floor, and why EMsella kegel chair therapy is the best option following pregnancy.

How Pregnancy Affects the Pelvic Floor

Being pregnant puts a lot of stress on the pelvic floor muscles. During pregnancy, the pelvic floor stretches, making room for the growing fetus. As a result, the muscles overstretch and weaken. Gradually, the baby pushes down on the bladder, urethra, and pelvic floor muscles. As a result, the weight from the baby causes the muscles to further weaken—leading to numerous issues.

One issue is a weaker bladder and incontinence. Studies show about 40% of women experience urinary incontinence during pregnancy.* This issue is stressful and uncomfortable. In addition, a weak pelvic floor makes squeezing the pelvic muscles challenging. In response, urine is able to escape from the bladder.

Sexual dysfunction is another issue that can occur due to a weaker pelvic floor during pregnancy. Pelvic floor muscles are important for sexual response in women. If the pelvic floor is stressed and weak, vaginal sex may be less satisfying. It can also significantly reduce sensitivity. In addition, some individuals may have difficulty with arousal or reaching orgasm.

Another additional issue is uterine prolapse. This is when the vaginal walls or uterus protrude into the entrance of the vagina and creates a bulging sensation. Symptoms include the inability to control your bladder, aching or pressure in your pelvis, lower back pain, and constipation.

What Happens to the Pelvic Floor During Childbirth?

Problems during vaginal birth weaken the pelvic floor muscles and damage the nerves that control the bladder. During childbirth, trauma to the pelvic floor occurs. When the baby passes through the ‘levator hiatus’ in the pelvic floor, the nerves, muscles, and connective tissues sustain damage during the birthing process. As a result, the levator muscles stretch more than three times their normal length.

In many women, these muscles return to normal after delivery. However, in 10-30% of women, the muscles remain overstretched or torn off of the bone.* After this type of pelvic floor injury, the muscles and connective tissue cannot provide the support they once did. Injury to the pelvic floor is deep and is difficult to recognize at the time of childbirth.

EMsella Chair vs Non-surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

EMsella chair therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. During an EMsella therapy session, the patient sits on an FDA-cleared chair that delivers electromagnetic pulses to the pelvic floor muscles. These pulses contract the pelvic floor muscles, and patients usually experience a gentle tingling feeling during the treatment. As a result, this therapy strengthens the pelvic floor muscles, improves bladder control, and enhances sexual sensation. The therapy is non-invasive and takes just 30 minutes per session. Results are semi-permanent and can last up to six months.*

Viveve and ThermiVa are two popular types of non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation treatments. They do not require anesthetic or numbing cream. Instead, they work by using radiofrequency energy to repair the vaginal tissue. With Viveve, cryogen-cooled radiofrequency waves penetrate the vaginal walls using a small probe. The probe gently heats and cools the tissue, boosting collagen production. ThermiVa also uses radiofrequency waves to heat vaginal tissue and stimulate collagen production. However, this non-invasive procedure treats both the inside and outside of the vagina. As a result, both treatments effectively tighten the vagina inside and outside.

Additional benefits include improving vaginal lubrication, the appearance of the labia, as well as sexual function, and mild incontinence. On average, Viveve and ThermiVa’s final results are noticeable about three months after your last treatment session. Viveve and ThermiVa results are semi-permanent and typically last nine to twelve months.*

Emsella Chair vs Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

EMsella chair therapy is a non-surgical treatment for improving the strength of the pelvic muscles by using high-intensity electromagnetic waves. The treatment helps correct certain issues including urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and sexual dysfunction. It does not involve incisions or surgery, and there is no recovery time. Some individuals may experience redness, muscle pain, or muscle spasms in the treatment area. However, these symptoms are temporary and typically resolve on their own.

Surgical vaginal rejuvenation involves incisions in the vaginal area to remove excess tissue and tighten the pelvic muscles. This procedure helps vaginal looseness, dryness, and sensitivity. It involves recovery time and can have side effects such as pain, bleeding, and swelling or bruising. Potential risks include loss of sensation, scarring, and infection.
