Urinary incontinence is among the most common female problems in women aged 35 and over and seriously impairs quality of life. The causes of incontinence in women can be many: for example, physical changes resulting from pregnancy, childbirth and menopause or the removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) can cause the dysfunction. Today, however, the problem can be solved at the root and in a non-invasive way. Let’s discover the treatment together.
How does the treatment work?
The treatment is done while seated, in a special chair, in a position that allows the waves of the special electromagnetic field (TOP FMS) to be directed onto the pelvic floor. Electromagnetic waves act directly on the pelvic floor muscle with contractions and relaxation that strengthen the muscles.
Is the treatment painful?
The treatment is practically painless. Depending on the protocol applied, contractions of different intensities can be felt.
What should I do before treatment?
Before undergoing treatment, it is necessary to have a consultation with your doctor in order to identify the protocol best suited to your needs. During treatment, all metal and electronic accessories must be removed. The doctor must be informed about the presence of particular metal prostheses in the area.
How many treatments are needed?
The cycle involves 6 to 8 sessions twice a week. At the end of the treatment course, maintenance treatments are recommended.
How long does a treatment last?
A session lasts an average of 30 minutes.
What should I do after the treatment?
Immediately after treatment, a return to normal daily life is possible.
What results can I expect?
The tangible benefit is a reduction in the severity of incontinence symptoms and a progressive improvement in quality of life.
