Pelvic Floor Dysfunction: Causes and Treatment

Your pelvic floor is an important group of muscles. When things go wrong, you may experience certain symptoms. Pelvic floor dysfunction can lead to urinary incontinence, pain, and other problems. At The Wellness Clinic at New Boston Village, we offer pelvic floor dysfunction treatments that can improve your quality of life.

Here’s why your pelvic floor matters — and what you can do to fix it. 

What Are the Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?

You may not recognize your symptoms if you experience pelvic floor dysfunction. The signs and symptoms of this issue are not always easy to spot. Some of the more common signs include: 

Frequent Urination

Do you constantly have to find a bathroom to urinate? This can be inconvenient for many patients. Frequent urination can be a sign that something is wrong with your pelvic floor. 

Painful Bladder and Bowel Movements

Urinating can be painful for patients with pelvic floor dysfunction. The muscles that control your bladder and bowels might be too weak or strained to work properly. This can cause shooting pains and aches as you try to urinate or defecate. 

Pain During Intercourse

Both men and women may experience pain during sexual intercourse due to pelvic floor dysfunction. Men can develop erectile dysfunction if their pelvic floor muscles become too weak. Women often experience pain during intercourse, which can delay or prevent orgasm. 

Causes of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Your pelvic floor supports many of your internal organs, so any dysfunction can impact your quality of life. What exactly causes this uncomfortable condition?


While fairly rare, sometimes pelvic floor dysfunction runs in families. This can happen if your genetics cause your connective tissues to be weaker than normal. 


Being overweight or obese can strain your pelvic floor muscles and cause them to weaken. If you live a sedentary lifestyle and don’t exercise frequently, your weight is more likely to lead to pelvic floor dysfunction. 


Many women experience pelvic floor dysfunction following pregnancy and childbirth. During pregnancy, your uterus expands to make room for your baby. This can put stress on your pelvic floor muscles and cause problems with urination. 

Emsella Treatments: Rejuvenate Your Pelvic Floor

Regardless of the cause of your pelvic floor problems, there are treatments available that can address them. One solution is the Emsella chair.

What Is Emsella?

So, what is Emsella? Emsella is an innovative treatment that restores strength to your pelvic floor muscles to enhance your quality of life. 

This urinary incontinence treatment strengthens your pelvic floor non-invasively. You sit on the Emsella chair (without removing your clothing), and let the device do the work for you.

Comfortable Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Treatments

The Emsella chair delivers electromagnetic energy to your pelvic floor muscles. This energy causes them to contract, which strengthens these muscles over time. 

As you sit on the Emsella chair, you might feel tingling sensations and muscle contractions. In one 30-minute Emsella session, you can simply read a book, scroll on your phone, or do any other activity that brings you relaxation and comfort. Pelvic floor dysfunction treatments can be that easy.

Your Treatment Plan

We customize Emsella treatments to meet your individual needs. Both men and women can enjoy reduced urinary incontinence and fewer sexual problems after Emsella sessions. 

Most patients need six sessions to see optimal results from the Emsella chair. You will likely need to come in twice a week to sit on the chair for 30 minutes per session. For busy patients, this convenient treatment schedule can be optimal. 

We will adjust your treatment plan according to your needs. For example, a patient with more severe pelvic floor dysfunction may need more than six treatments. If you only experience minor problems, you may need fewer sessions. Everything is tailored to you when you visit our clinic in Fall River, MA. 

When Will You See the Results?

Many patients wonder how long it takes for results to take effect after their last Emsella treatment. It can take 8 to 12 weeks after your last session to see your full results; your muscles need time to rebuild and become stronger. After 8 to 12 weeks, you may notice improvements in your sexual and physical health. 

How Urinary Incontinence Treatments Can Improve Your Life

Urinary incontinence and other pelvic floor problems can be debilitating. Going out in public can pose a challenge with the possibility of urine leakage. Emsella’s potential to treat urinary incontinence sets it apart from other treatments. 

While you can perform pelvic floor exercises at home, the Emsella chair is a step up. The Emsella chair stimulates thousands of pelvic floor muscle contractions during your session — an accomplishment that would be physically impossible without these treatments. After Emsella’s results start to take effect, you may notice fewer accidents, reduced urination, and less discomfort in your daily life. 

Better Intimacy: Vaginal Rejuvenation

Emsella offers another unique benefit: increased vaginal elasticity and sensation. If you struggle with vaginal laxity after childbirth, menopause, or other hormonal changes, Emsella may help. 

The Emsella chair strengthens your vaginal muscles, making sex a more pleasurable experience for both parties. You may experience more sensation, which makes it easier to orgasm and enjoy your sex life. 

Unlike other vaginal rejuvenation treatments, Emsella is non-invasive and preserves your privacy. You never have to take your clothes off during your sessions. You simply sit on the chair and receive the benefit of simple, convenient treatment.
