Post Partum Incontinence: Is not NORMAL

Mind Body Shen KC

Incontinence is a common issue faced by many post-partum mothers that can be treated with Emsella. It is estimated that up to

“15% of all post-partum mothers suffer from some degree of incontinence.


Although, as a Physical Therapist for over two decades treating chronic pain and illness I would venture to say that number is a lot higher.”

While this issue can be embarrassing and uncomfortable, it is important to know that many women have successfully managed their incontinence and gone on to lead normal, happy lives.


Incontinence is caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles, which can be a result of the physical stress of childbirth. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, including difficulty controlling the urge to urinate, frequent or urgent need to urinate, leakage of urine when coughing, sneezing or laughing, and a feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder.


We offer treatment with Emsella, a non-invasive approach to treating incontinence. emsella incontinence treatment


The emsella utilizes EMF to stimulate the pelvic floor significantly better than a TENS unit and does not require internal work like most pelvic floor treatments.

You are able to stay fully clothed in the privacy of your own room.

We have seen significant results with the Emsella within a few visits.


The good news is that incontinence is treatable and there are many ways to manage it. The first step is to talk to your doctor to find out what type of incontinence you are experiencing. Your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes, such as avoiding beverages with caffeine or carbonation, avoiding activities that cause increased abdominal pressure (e.g., heavy lifting or running), and making sure to empty your bladder completely when you urinate.


“Kegel exercises can also be beneficial in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. Kegel exercises involve squeezing and releasing the pelvic floor muscles, and can be done anytime, anywhere. It is important to ensure that you are doing the exercises correctly, and you can ask your doctor or physical therapist for guidance.”


Other treatments may include medications, pelvic floor physical therapy, or in some cases, surgery. It is important to talk to your doctor about all of your options so that you can find the best treatment for your individual needs.


Incontinence can be a difficult issue to deal with, but it is important to remember that you are not alone. With the right care and treatment, you can manage your incontinence and have a healthy, fulfilling post-partum experience.
