Emsella Chair Myths

by | Jun 24, 2024

The Emsella chair, a revolutionary device that uses HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology to improve pelvic floor health, has gained significant attention in recent years. As with any innovative treatment, it has its share of myths and misconceptions. Let’s set the record straight by discussing some of the most common myths about the Emsella chair.

Myth 1: The Emsella Chair is Only for Women

Reality: While the Emsella chair is often marketed towards women, especially postpartum women dealing with urinary incontinence, it is equally effective for men. Men can also experience pelvic floor dysfunction, which can lead to issues like urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction. Emsella can improve symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. The Emsella chair provides benefits for both men and women by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.

Myth 2: The Emsella Chair is Painful

Reality: One of the major advantages of the Emsella chair is that it is a non-invasive and painless treatment. Patients remain fully clothed and sit comfortably during the session. The electromagnetic pulses cause strong, yet painless, muscle contractions. Most patients describe the sensation as a series of intense muscle contractions, but not painful.

Myth 3: Results from the Emsella Chair are Immediate

Reality: While some patients may notice improvements after just one session, optimal results require a minimum of six treatments. Each patient’s response to the treatment can vary, but generally, a series of six to eight sessions is recommended for the best outcomes. Patience and consistency are key to achieving lasting results.

Myth 4: The Emsella Chair Can Replace All Other Pelvic Floor Treatments

Reality: The Emsella chair is a powerful tool for strengthening the pelvic floor, but it is not a replacement for all other treatments. In some cases, a combined approach using the Emsella chair along with Emfemme 360, physiotherapy, lifestyle changes, and other medical treatments may be necessary. It’s essential to have a consultation with one of our technicians to create a treatment plan that will address your specific concerns.

Myth 5: The Emsella Chair is Only for Older Adults

Reality: Pelvic floor dysfunction can affect people of all ages, not just older adults. Younger individuals, particularly postpartum women or athletes who engage in high-impact sports, can also benefit from the Emsella chair. It is designed to help anyone looking to improve their pelvic floor strength and function, regardless of age.
