Common Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence to be Aware of

By: Dr. Linda I. Sodoma


Urinary incontinence is a common yet often overlooked condition affecting numerous women worldwide. It involves the involuntary leakage of urine, which may occur due to various reasons. Age, childbirth, obesity, or certain diseases can contribute to the weakening of the pelvic muscles, leading to this condition. Dr. Linda I. Sodoma and her team at Life Care for Women in Gilbert, AZ aim to shed light on this prevalent issue and provide effective treatment options, including the innovative EMSELLA® treatment.

What are the symptoms of urinary incontinence?

There are several key symptoms of urinary incontinence to know about, which often signal that professional help might be needed. The most obvious signs are the sudden need to urinate and the inability to control urine leakage. This leakage can occur during everyday activities such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising — a condition known as stress incontinence. For others, there may be a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine, known as urge incontinence. Other symptoms of urinary incontinence may include frequent urination throughout the day and waking up several times during the night to use the bathroom.

How is urinary incontinence treated?

At Life Care for Women, our team recognizes that dealing with urinary incontinence can be stressful and challenging. That's why we offer EMSELLA — a groundbreaking, noninvasive treatment option that helps strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and manage the symptoms of urinary incontinence. The EMSELLA treatment involves the patient comfortably sitting on the EMSELLA chair while it uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate deep pelvic floor muscles, inducing thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions — something regular exercises can't achieve. This strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles can drastically reduce, and in some cases even get rid of, the leakage of urine.

EMSELLA: A cutting-edge way to treat urinary incontinence

EMSELLA has become a game-changer in the treatment of urinary incontinence. A series of these treatments can improve the quality of life for women suffering from this condition. Most patients report a significant reduction in their symptoms, and many experience a resolution of incontinence. The procedure is noninvasive, is not considered painful, and requires no recovery time. In addition, patients can remain fully clothed during the treatment. Furthermore, it's also a suitable solution for those who have not found success with other treatments or prefer a nonsurgical approach to manage their urinary incontinence in Gilbert, AZ.
