Have you ever been to a restaurant and suddenly had an urge to go to the bathroom but didn’t quite make it in time? That is a typical example of what we call urge incontinence. This problem plagues millions of women throughout the United States and affects any woman between the ages of 25 and 65. Treatment usually involves medication which in general works but unfortunately does have some side effects. Women with glaucoma cannot take these medications.
Dr. Joseph Berenholz has been treating women with urge incontinence for years successfully using the Emsella chair. Women are treated with high-intensity electromagnetic wave therapy. While the Emsella chair has been approved by the FDA for stress urinary incontinence it has been found effective for both urge incontinence as well as overactive bladder. Overactive bladder is the symptomatology of the bladder simply voiding itself on any moment’s notice with any type of stimulation. Dr. Berenholz has used the Emsella chair successfully for all the scenarios.
