Stress incontinence is a type of urinary incontinence that occurs when there is pressure or stress on the bladder, causing urine leakage. Here are some of the common causes of stress incontinence:
Weak pelvic floor muscles: The pelvic floor muscles support the bladder and urethra. If these muscles become weak due to pregnancy, childbirth, aging, or obesity, they may not be able to support the bladder as well, leading to stress incontinence.
Hormonal changes: Menopause can cause a decrease in estrogen levels, which can weaken the pelvic floor muscles and cause stress incontinence.
Chronic coughing or sneezing: Chronic coughing or sneezing can put pressure on the bladder and cause urine leakage.
Certain medications: Some medications, such as diuretics or blood pressure medications, can increase urine production and contribute to stress incontinence.
Smoking: Smoking can weaken the pelvic floor muscles and increase the risk of stress incontinence.
High-impact activities: High-impact activities such as running, jumping, or heavy lifting can put pressure on the bladder and contribute to stress incontinence.
Neurological conditions: Conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, or spinal cord injuries can interfere with nerve signals to the bladder and lead to stress incontinence.
It’s important to note that stress incontinence can have multiple contributing factors, and it’s not always possible to pinpoint one specific cause. Treatment for stress incontinence will depend on the underlying causes and severity of the condition.
Emsella Chair for stress incontinence
The Emsella chair is a non-invasive medical device that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to strengthen and tone the pelvic floor muscles. This type of therapy can be particularly beneficial for patients who are experiencing urinary incontinence or other pelvic floor disorders.
Here are some of the benefits of the Emsella chair for patients:
Non-invasive: The Emsella chair is a non-invasive treatment option, meaning that patients do not need to undergo surgery or take medication to see results. This can be a particularly appealing option for patients who are looking for a non-invasive approach to addressing their symptoms.
Pain-free: The Emsella chair therapy is pain-free, and patients typically experience a mild tingling or vibrating sensation during the treatment. This makes it a comfortable option for patients who may be sensitive to pain or discomfort.
Improved pelvic floor strength: The Emsella chair uses HIFEM technology to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles, which can lead to improved strength and tone. This can be especially beneficial for patients who have weakened pelvic floor muscles due to age, childbirth, or other factors.
Reduced urinary incontinence symptoms: Many patients who use the Emsella chair report a reduction in urinary incontinence symptoms after treatment. This can improve their quality of life and help them to feel more confident and comfortable in social situations.
Quick treatment sessions: The Emsella chair therapy typically involves a series of short treatment sessions that last around 30 minutes each. This means that patients can fit the therapy into their busy schedules without having to take significant time off work or other activities.
Overall, the Emsella chair can be a highly effective treatment option for patients who are experiencing urinary incontinence or other pelvic floor disorders. It is non-invasive, pain-free, and can lead to improved pelvic floor strength and a reduction in symptoms.

In the preliminary consultation I was given very useful information, Dr Langdon was warm and very supportive. Following my consultation I went for the procedure a few months later and was made to feel comfortable on my arrival by the members of staff in reception. I went for my treatment which was done by Dr Paris who was warm and reassuring and answered all my questions. I was very nervous and self-aware and Dr Paris was able to make me feel in good hands, safe and comfortable. I am very happy with the outcome of my treatment and will feel comfortable to book any future treatments with Berkshire Aesthetics when needed. Many thanks.read less

I researched the best place to go for a consultation as am quite worried when you see disasters after fillers and wanted to find the best consultant. I called Berkshire Aesthetics and found them to be very informative. I booked a consultation on the phone and was sent a questionnaire to complete before arrival. On arrival I felt very at ease with the reception and the general feeling was very positive. I had a chat with Dr Selena Langdon and left feeling very optimistic and comfortable with the advice given. I have booked an appointment to go ahead with the procedure.read less

Barbara was so friendly and welcoming & took a great history, she explained the images taken to me & recommended a treatment plan, products to use alongside make up, dietary & supplement advice which have all worked wonders! I have been back for reviews with Barbara since and have had some hydrafacials which have been great. My skin is 100% better and it’s improving every time. I can’t believe the improvement in my overall skin health and am sorry I didn’t come to see Barbara years ago, she’s an absolute superstar 🌟 I would highly recommend Berkshire aesthetics ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️read less
