5 Such an amazing experience. Everyone is very friendly and Dr. Maddox is awesome. Dr. Maddox took the time to explain the treatment step by step. My results are natural looking which is very important to me.

An estimated one in four women over the age of 18 experience involuntary urinary leakage, and likelihood increases throughout life. If you are one of these individuals, you know the anxiety that results from this condition. With more than 15 years of experience in anti-aging medicine, and a commitment to providing the latest technological advances to patients in the Portland, OR area, Dr. Adam Maddox is pleased to offer non-invasive BTL Emsella treatment.

What causes urinary incontinence?

About 80 percent of Americans with urinary incontinence are female. By age 60, nearly a quarter of women deal with it. Statistically, most wait nearly seven years before obtaining a proper diagnosis. Meanwhile, they do their best to manage the situation with lifestyle adjustments and incontinence products designed only to stop the embarrassment . . . not the flow. Risk of visible wetness, wearing special garments, unexpected leakage, and odor are real concerns. Incontinence has a serious impact on quality of life, from career to romance, vacation, sleep, and managing a busy schedule.

Why are women more susceptible? Stress incontinence is the most common type of bladder leakage. A woman’s body has a muscular sling that extends from the pubic bone to the tail bone (front to back), and from one sitting bone to the other, side to side. Pelvic floor muscles provide support for floating organs such as uterus, bladder, and bowels.

BTL Emsella for urinary incontinence Pregnancy places extreme strain on these muscles, and sometimes, even in young women, they do not regain pre-pregnancy muscle tone after childbirth. Hormonal changes during menopause and time also play a role. Pelvic floor muscles lose mass as we age, just like muscles in any other part of the body.

Other factors may also contribute to the problem:

  • Chronic coughing
  • Heavy lifting
  • High impact exercise
  • Obesity
  • Straining on the toilet
  • Surgery

As pelvic floor muscles weaken, they no longer provide the structure necessary for proper bladder control.

BTL Emsella Treatment

Portland OR physician explains how BTL Emsella works

Emsella is a revolutionary alternative to surgery, that fortifies your body’s own natural tissues. All you do is sit in the comfortable Emsella treatment chair (there is no need to remove clothing). The device emits high-intensity electromagnetic energy focused on deep pelvic floor muscles. It stimulates muscle contractions – thousands of them per second – to restore neuromuscular control. This stimulus strengthens muscles like Kegel exercises, except at a greatly accelerated rate and addresses the entire network of pelvic floor muscles.

At Thrive you always receive personalized treatment tailored to your individual needs. However, a typical Emsella treatment plan involves about six sessions, usually scheduled twice per week.

Are you ready to start wearing pretty undergarments again? Wouldn’t it be nice to cough, sneeze, laugh, or lift without worry? Isn’t it time to stop looking for the nearest ladies’ room and start enjoying life? Call Thrive for a discreet consultation to find out if BTL Emsella is right for you. The number in Portland OR is (503) 928-6505.
