Your body goes through a wide range of changes as you move through the phases of life, and some of those changes can affect your urinary health. That’s why Valencia Center for Women's Health offers pelvic health (incontinence) services to women in and around Valencia, California. When you’re ready to explore the options for enhanced urinary control, call or click to schedule your personalized consultation.
Urinary incontinence is the medical term used to describe a loss of bladder control. For some women, incontinence is mild, and the only symptom is occasional minor bladder leakage when coughing, sneezing, or performing strenuous activities.
Incontinence becomes a daily issue in other cases, and bladder leakage occurs with little warning. Some women experience a sudden, intense urge to urinate and cannot make it to the restroom in time. Others notice dribbling of urine shortly after finishing in the bathroom.
Incontinence can be a difficult thing to experience. Not only is it challenging to plan your activities around access to a restroom, but worrying about leaking urine can make you feel anxious in professional or social settings.
There are many things that can cause urinary incontinence, but one of the most common pelvic health issues that women experience is weakened pelvic floor muscles. These are the muscles that support your uterus, bowels, and bladder.
Over the years, your pelvic floor muscles can weaken. Women who’ve gone through pregnancy and childbirth can experience significant changes in the strength of their pelvic floor muscles. Multiple pregnancies can make the condition even more pronounced.
Without adequate support, bladder pressure can cause urine to leak. Weakened pelvic floor muscles can also lead to pelvic organ prolapse, which often requires surgical correction.
When urinary incontinence is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles, an innovative treatment called Emsella® can help. This option is non-invasive and requires no preparation or recovery time. There is no need for anesthesia, and virtually everyone is a good candidate.
You simply sit on the Emsella treatment chair during treatments and relax during the 30-minute session. The treatment platform uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to stimulate muscle contractions throughout your pelvic region. This essentially gives those muscles a workout, prompting your body to strengthen and reinforce the muscle fibers.
A 30-minute session delivers the equivalent of 12,000 kegel exercises. One kegel contraction is similar to the muscle movement you make when you stop the flow of urine. Women have long been advised to perform these exercises to strengthen their pelvic muscles. Emsella simply takes those exercises to the next level by prompting the contractions for you.

The pelvic floor are the bowl-shaped muscles in the pelvic area that support the uterus, bladder, and bowels. There are many factors that can cause weak pelvic floor such as aging, lifestyle, childbirth, and menopause. Deconditioning of the pelvic floor muscles can lead to loss of bladder control and the involuntary leakage of urine. These are some of the common symptoms of the weakened pelvic floor:
Emsella uses electromagnetic waves at a high frequency to cause pelvic floor muscle stimulation completely non-invasively. A single session is equivalent to doing 12,000 kegel exercises in only 28 minutes. Our patients often take the time to relax, read a book or enjoy some quiet time for themselves. As a non-invasive treatment option, it requires no downtime. As soon as you’re finished, you can continue with your regular day-to-day routine. We customize our treatments to meet the needs of our patients. However, we usually recommend a three-week session plan with treatments occurring twice a week. Many patients report improved results in as little as one treatment. Your first step towards taking control of your life begins at Valencia Center for Women’s Health with the help of Dr. Navi
