Strengthening Your Pelvic Floor
After you give birth, it’s very common for your pelvic floor muscles to weaken. This can lead to a loss of control over some of your body’s functions, primarily your ability to urinate. Urinary incontinence is a condition that affects many women post-pregnancy, as their pelvic floor is damaged, weakened, or both. This makes it difficult to “hold it” and causes unexpected leakage.
While some pregnant women may be directed towards quick fixes like pads, liners, or invasive surgical solutions, we believe that women dealing with postpartum urinary incontinence deserve something effective and non-invasive.
That’s where Emsella in Chicago at CaTara Medical Spa comes in. Emsella is an FDA-cleared, advanced treatment for urinary incontinence. This procedure uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to trigger muscle contractions in the pelvic floor, strengthening them for the long term.
