For many women bladder control is a constant daily concern with multiple visits to the bathroom at night, urgent dashes to attempt to reach a bathroom in time and frequent embarrassing leakage of urine.
There are two main events in life that trigger changes in our bladder function. The first is having babies. The second is going through menopause. For 1 in 5 women their bladder function never returns to normal after having a child and they are left with incontinence issues for the rest of their lives.
Women can experience stress urinary incontinence; that is a leakage of urine with a cough, sneeze, running or heavy lifting or they may experience urge incontinence which is a sudden and strong need to urinate.
There are many options available to help rectify incontinence ranging from physiotherapist led pelvic floor exercises to surgery. After seeing many issues first hand from pelvic mesh and slings for pelvic reconstructive surgeries, Gynaecologist Dr Sonya Jessup set out to find a safe and effective non-surgical option for patients.
This led her to the Emsella chair and Viveve. Both are non-invasive, non-surgical treatments producing excellent results for women with incontinence. At The Elsa Clinic we are specialists in understanding and treating incontinence.
