If you find yourself with the frequent need to urinate or are unable to completely control your bladder, you aren’t alone. At least a quarter to a third of all men in the U.S. suffer from some degree of urinary incontinence but that is likely a conservative estimate, since bladder problems are typically underreported. However, urinary incontinence is as treatable as it is common for both men and women, making it something you shouldn’t have to “just deal with.”
With EMSELLA™ incontinence treatment from Oklahoma Men’s Clinic, you can return to the activities you used to enjoy while regaining your confidence and reclaiming your life. EMSELLA is an effective, non-invasive, and FDA-approved way to treat and manage your urinary incontinence symptoms without the need for surgery or pharmaceuticals. EMSELLA has also shown promise in treating men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) or who would like to improve the quality of their erectile function.
Improve Your Incontinence Symptoms with EMSELLA™
EMSELLA™ is a convenient and non-invasive solution for alleviating the symptoms of urinary incontinence. The specially designed EMSELLA™ Chair generates a harmless magnetic field that penetrates the skin and tissues to reach the pelvic floor muscles, using high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate those deep muscles and increase blood flow to them. The electromagnetic energy delivers thousands of supramaximal pelvic floor muscle contractions in just 30 minutes—the equivalent of about 12,000 Kegel exercises—to “re-educate” and strengthen the muscles of incontinent patients, improving symptoms and helping you regain control over your bladder.
In clinical studies, 95% of patients who used EMSELLA reported an improved quality of life, while 75% reported a reduction in the use of urinary pads. In one study, 50% of the participants reported a complete resolution of their incontinence.
Many patients observe improvements in their incontinence or ED symptoms after a single session of EMSELLA, with results continuing to improve over the next few weeks.
By strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and improving or even eliminating the symptoms of incontinence, EMSELLA can improve your overall health, helping you experience:
- Reduced urinary and fecal incontinence
- Improved bladder control
- Improved sexual performance and function
- Improved quality of life
- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Improved confidence
- A better relationship with your partner
- Relief from chronic back pain
Treat Your ED with EMSELLA™
Because EMSELLA works to strengthen and improve the pelvic floor muscles, it has also shown promise for treating sexual dysfunction in men and women.
By stimulating and increasing blood flow to the same pelvic floor musculature responsible for erectile rigidity, EMSELLA can be an effective treatment option for men experiencing some forms of erectile dysfunction or suboptimal erectile function. EMSELLA patients have reported improvement in the quality and control of their erections, ejaculations, and overall sexual performance.
For their female partners who are experiencing problems with vaginal lubrication, sensation, and the ability to achieve orgasm, especially post-childbirth and during menopause, EMSELLA treatments have improved vaginal laxity and tone, allowing them to enjoy increased sensation, stronger orgasms, and better, more positive sexual interactions.
Other benefits of EMSELLA to treat ED include:
Reductions in premature ejaculations
Improved ability to obtain and maintain an erection
Improved sexual satisfaction and ability to achieve orgasm
Heightened sexual sensation with improved blood flow
No downtime or recovery time
Natural, easy, and painless solution
Longer lasting results that don’t depend on medications
Improved sexual performance and stamina
Some men may begin to see improvement in their ED symptoms after a single EMSELLA session, but most men require a series of 4 to 6 treatments over the course of several days for significant improvements in their sexual function.
While EMSELLA can be a natural alternative to ED drugs like Viagra or Cialis, it is not an effective substitute for intracavernosal injections like TriMix for treating advanced ED.
Your EMSELLA™ Experience at Oklahoma Men’s Clinic
During your EMSELLA treatment, you’ll simply sit on the EMSELLA™ Chair fully clothed while the electromagnetic technology gets to work. Each session lasts about 30 minutes, and we recommend six sessions to begin with, scheduled twice a week. During your session you may feel some tingling and contraction of your pelvic floor muscles but no pain, and you can continue with your regular activities immediately after treatment.
Most patients start seeing improvements in their symptoms after just one session, with continued improvements week over week. The effects of EMSELLA can last between 9 and 12 months, although we often recommend follow-up treatment 3-6 months after the initial six sessions for optimal results.
The Inconvenience of Incontinence
Urinary incontinence is a loss of bladder control. Its severity can range from occasionally leaking a small amount of urine when you cough, sneeze, or laugh to having frequent urinary urges so sudden and strong that you can’t reach the bathroom in time.
Urinary incontinence is primarily the result of pelvic floor muscles that are insufficiently supporting the pelvic organs—including the bladder, bowel (large intestine), and internal reproductive organs—thereby impacting bladder control. This layer of intertwined muscles and connective tissue span the bottom of the pelvis from the pubic bone in front to the tailbone in back as well as outward to the sitting bones on each side and help to stabilize your core.
Pelvic floor muscles are supposed to coordinate with organs like the urethra to control the release of urine, either squeezing to keep things in place or relaxing to widen and allow release. Strong and healthy pelvic floor muscles enable you to control the release of urine, but as we age, the muscles of the bladder and urethra weaken, decreasing the bladder’s capacity to store urine while allowing involuntary contractions of the urethra to happen more often.
However, while urinary incontinence occurs more often with age, it isn’t an inevitable consequence of age and age isn’t the only cause.
Urinary incontinence can be embarrassing, but it is also highly treatable with effective, non-invasive solutions like EMSELLA from Oklahoma Men’s Clinic.
The Impact of Urinary Incontinence on Sexual Health
The same pelvic floor muscles important in bladder control also play a role in the blood flow and contractions required during arousal, sex, and orgasm. For women, these muscles control vaginal contractions while for men, they are responsible for erections and ejaculation.
Weak pelvic floor muscles that contribute to urinary incontinence can also hinder optimal sexual function, negatively affecting intimate relationships and sexual wellness. They can make it harder for men to become aroused, sustain an erection, and reach orgasm, and they can make sex less comfortable or enjoyable for women.
In addition, the embarrassment of leakage, odor, and lack of control associated with urinary incontinence can also cause both men and women to abstain from sex, avoid situations of intimacy, withdraw from current or future relationships, and even suppress their own sexual desires, leading to anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem in a cycle that’s hard to break.

Am I a good candidate for EMSELLA™?
EMSELLA™ can be an effective alternative to pelvic floor therapy for men and women of any age who want a solution to their urinary incontinence and want to improve their quality of life. EMSELLA may be right for you if you are experiencing urinary incontinence symptoms that are:
- Affecting your daily life
- Causing you to restrict your activities and limit social interaction
- Increasing your risk of fall if you have to rush to the toilet
- Negatively impacting your quality of life
You may also be a good candidate for EMSELLA if you have had a Prostatectomy, or suffer from certain types of ED, premature ejaculation, or poor control of ejaculation. By strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, EMSELLA has been shown to be effective in increasing penile rigidity and hardness as well as enhancing orgasm and control of ejaculation in many men.
Are there different types of urinary incontinence?
There are four primary types of urinary incontinence.
- Stress incontinence, which occurs when pressure is exerted on the bladder, such as when you cough, laugh, sneeze, exercise, or lift something heavy. It typically results from problems with the sphincter, which is the muscle that encircles the urethra and controls the release of urine from the body.
- Urge incontinence, which is characterized by a sudden intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary release of urine. People suffering from urge incontinence may feel the need to urinate often, including throughout the night.
- Overflow incontinence describes a frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to a bladder that doesn’t completely empty.
- Functional incontinence results from a physical or mental impairment.
Many people experience what is referred to as “mixed incontinence,” which is essentially a combination of stress and urge incontinence.
