What is Pelvic Restoration?

The Pelvicore chair is a breakthrough, non-invasive approach that aims to take the guess work and the wait time out of pelvic floor treatment. Pelvicore utilizes an approach called High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. When a patient sits on the device, HIFEM energy waves are directed deep into the pubic region, stimulating targeted muscle contractions within the PFMs. These contractions are considered “supramaximal”, or stronger than what the body’s nervous system can achieve on its own. Generally, patients report a gentle tingling sensation as a result of the treatment.

The ultimate goal is to re-educate the pelvic floor muscles on how to properly tense and relax in order to achieve urinary control and optimal sexual function. Over the course of one 30 minute session, Pelvicore stimulates enough contractions to rival 12,000 reps of Kegel exercises – all while fully clothed, and with no recovery time needed afterward.

Pelvicore is a relatively new therapy, so research into its impact is ongoing. But from the preliminary studies, nearly 95% of test subjects reported improvement in their quality of life. Recently, research was presented at a meeting of the Sexual Medicine Society showing that  effectively improved the intensity and duration of orgasm in men after just four sessions.

What Are the Benefits of Strengthening Your Pelvic Floor?

Pelvicore treatments for men have substantially improved many individuals’ quality of life, confidence, sexual health, and sexual performance. Treatments are quick, non-surgical, and pain-free, providing men with a comfortable solution to stressful conditions.

The pelvic floor muscles support the bladder, rectum, and prostate. When these muscles become weakened, it can lead to issues such as urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and premature ejaculation.

  • Increased ejaculation control by strengthening the pelvic floor allowing you to delay ejaculation longer.
  • Increased rigidity and hardness of your erection.
  • Improved ability to maintain an erection.
  • Increase bladder control so you’re not constantly needing to use the bathroom, and feelings of urgency when you need to go
  • Fecal Smearing or involuntary leakage from your bladder or bowel, often when laughing, coughing, sneezing, or exercising, which can be a major source of undeserved embarrassment.
  • Difficulty fully emptying your bladder or bowels when you are in the restroom, often leading to feelings of anxiety about needing to go again.

For people who suffer from Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), pelvic floor therapy can be a gamechanger. A variety of factors can lead to weak PFMs, but two of the most common causes are childbirth in women and prostate removal surgery in men. Fortunately, both have been shown to respond well to targeted pelvic floor treatment.

 

In addition, PFMs are strongly associated with sexual function in both women and men. Research shows that women who strengthen their PFMs experience improved blood flow to their pubic region, enhancing sexual stimulation and arousal. This can lead to increased vaginal lubrication, enhanced relaxation of vaginal muscles, and improvements in feelings of pain experienced during intercourse. All of these benefits are consistent with one ultimate outcome: stronger, more frequent orgasms.

 

Men also see strong benefits from pelvic floor therapy. In a 2014 research article for the Journal of Sexual Medicine aptly titled Erectile Hydraulics”, the authors discuss how strong PFMs are critical to achieving and maintaining a firm erection. Much like women, men benefit from increased blood flow to the pubic region. Pelvic floor therapy has been strongly associated with improvements in ED, as well as enhanced ability to delay premature ejaculation.

How Can You Strengthen Your Pelvic Floor?

The standard therapy is something called a Kegel exercise: a low-cost and highly validated muscular strengthening treatment. Sounds great, right? So, what’s the catch?

Kegel Exercise Chart

The problem is doing Kegels correctly isn’t as easy as it sounds without specialized instruction. One study found that even among men who reported prior knowledge of Kegels, nearly a quarter could not correctly perform the exercise at baseline. Those who could still reported practicing less than twice a week. Like most muscular work, a Kegel exercise program requires time and consistent practice in order to improve control. And given the stressful, embarrassing nature of urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction, waiting for results can be really frustrating.

Ejaculatory and Erection Control and Strength

While it’s no surprise that the pelvic floor is made of muscle, but what is a surprise to most men is that sexual function can be controlled by those muscles. Strengthening the pelvic floor can help you not only restore better blood flow but also help with erectile dysfunction leading to harder and stronger erections. These same muscles control your orgasms and ejaculation strength, in which can be beneficial in intimate life. Through strengthening your PFMs, you can have more control over your ejaculation and the strength of the ejaculation.

Fecal and Urinary Incontinence

Because the rectal muscle and urinary muscles (bladder) is controlled by the pelvic floor. Increasing strength gets rid of the constantly urinary battle of going constantly, then dribbling after urination. It also helps with any fecal smearing, the stains left behind because the rectal muscles aren’t tight enough to contain anything.

This unique technology revolutionizes intimate health and wellness by providing those suffering from incontinence with a completely non-invasive option. Emsella is a great option for patients of any age who desire solution for urinary incontinence and improvement in their quality of life. If you are concerned about urinary incontinence, frequent nighttime urination or constantly having the urge to urinate, you are a perfect candidate for Emsella. 

Ask anyone who has dealt with pelvic floor dysfunction first-hand, and they’ll tell you just how critical it is to keep these muscles strong and healthy. Signs of incontinence include:

  • Constantly needing to use the bathroom, and feelings of urgency when you need to go
  • Involuntary leakage from your bladder or bowel, often when laughing, coughing, sneezing, or exercising, which can be a major source of undeserved embarrassment
  • Difficulty fully emptying your bladder or bowels when you are in the restroom, often leading to feelings of anxiety about needing to go again

In some cases, Emsella has shown promise in helping with erectile dysfunction (ED). The strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles, which is a result of Emsella treatments, can improve blood flow and nerve activity in the pelvic region. These improvements are beneficial since good blood flow and nerve function are critical components of a healthy erectile response.

Yes, this is effective for male urinary incontinence, particularly stress and urge incontinence. By inducing supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions, it helps to re-educate and strengthen these muscles, providing better control over bladder function.

Good candidates for Emsella are men who suffer from urinary incontinence, particularly those who have not found relief through traditional exercises. Additionally, men looking for a non-surgical solution for this concern, may be good candidates for Emsella.
