What is PelviTone?

PelviTone is a procedure that uses high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) for the improvement, strengthening, and toning of muscles in the pelvic floor muscles.

The procedure is known to help individuals build muscles and is a non-invasive option for men and women of any age who desire a solution for urinary incontinence and improvement in quality of life. 

What can PelviTone treat?

  • Incontinence
  • Buttock sculpting and lifting
  • Improvement of sexual health

It is suitable for application on the buttocks and pelvic floor areas. 

How does PelviTone work?

PelviTone is a procedure that harnesses the power of electromagnetic energy to induce thousands of supramaximal contractions within the pelvic floor muscles during a single session. This approach is beneficial for individuals dealing with urinary incontinence, as it serves to re-educate and strengthen these essential muscle groups.

PelviTone stands out due to its ability to generate electromagnetic energy, which is skillfully directed to stimulate the pelvic floor muscles. This targeted energy prompts the muscles to contract at levels beyond what can typically be achieved through voluntary efforts. These supramaximal contractions are not only intense but also effective in terms of reconditioning and revitalizing the pelvic floor.

For patients grappling with urinary incontinence, this treatment offers a non-invasive and non-surgical alternative to address their concerns. By engaging in a series of sessions, individuals can experience improvements in pelvic muscle strength and control, ultimately enhancing their ability to manage urinary continence issues.

Why is pelvic muscle important and how does it affect me?

Pelvic muscles, also known as pelvic floor muscles, play a crucial role in sexual health for both men and women. These muscles are a group of muscles that provide support to the pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus, and rectum.

Here’s how pelvic muscles can affect you: 

  • Bladder Control: The pelvic floor muscles play a crucial role in maintaining urinary continence. Weak or dysfunctional pelvic muscles can lead to urinary incontinence, causing leakage when you cough, sneeze, or exert pressure on your bladder.

  • Bowel Control: These muscles also help control bowel movements. Weak pelvic muscles can contribute to fecal incontinence, making it challenging to control bowel movements.

  • Sexual Function (Men): For men, strong pelvic floor muscles can enhance erectile function by helping maintain and control erections. They are also involved in orgasm intensity.

  • Sexual Function (Women): In women, the pelvic floor muscles are essential for vaginal tone and sensation during sexual activity. Weak pelvic muscles can lead to reduced sexual satisfaction, discomfort, or pain during intercourse.

  • Pelvic Pain Disorders: Pelvic floor dysfunction or chronic pelvic pain can lead to discomfort and pain in the pelvic region, affecting your daily life and sexual health.
  • Pregnancy and Childbirth (Women): Pelvic muscles undergo significant stress during pregnancy and childbirth. Proper care and exercises during pregnancy and postpartum are essential to support these muscles and reduce the risk of issues like incontinence and prolapse.
  • Posture and Back Pain: Strong pelvic floor muscles are part of your core muscles, and they contribute to overall core strength and stability. Weak pelvic muscles can lead to poor posture and back pain.
  • Emotional Impact: Issues related to pelvic muscles, such as incontinence or pain, can have a significant emotional impact, affecting your self-esteem, confidence, and overall well-being.
  • Constipation: Pelvic floor dysfunction can also contribute to chronic constipation or difficulty with bowel movements.
  • Athletic Activities: Strong pelvic floor muscles are essential for athletes and active individuals as they provide stability and support during physical activities.
  • Menopause: Changes in hormone levels during menopause can affect pelvic muscle health and may lead to issues like vaginal dryness and urinary symptoms.

What is Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence refers to the unintended release of urine. It can be categorized into three distinct types:

  1. Stress incontinence occurs when external pressure on the bladder results in urine leakage. Common triggers include coughing, laughter, sneezing, or physical activity.

  2. Urge incontinence is characterized by a sudden and intense urge to urinate, leading to frequent episodes of involuntary urine release.

  3. Mixed incontinence is a condition that combines elements of both stress and urge incontinence.

What is Diastasis Recti?

Diastasis recti is a separation of the abdominal muscles that run vertically along the front of the abdomen. During pregnancy, as the uterus expands, it can cause these muscles to separate. This separation can lead to a noticeable bulge or gap in the abdominal area, which may result in a weaker core and contribute to back pain or posture issues. While diastasis recti can affect anyone, it is more commonly seen in pregnant women or individuals who have had multiple pregnancies. You can read more about Diastasis Recti condition through an article by National Library of Medicine here.

Although incontinence and diastasis recti are distinct conditions, they can sometimes be related because both involve changes to the abdominal and pelvic regions during pregnancy and childbirth. The weakened abdominal muscles associated with diastasis recti can contribute to pelvic floor dysfunction, which may increase the risk of stress urinary incontinence.

What are the causes of Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence can often be attributed to the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles, as these muscles play a vital role in providing support to the pelvic organs and maintaining control over bladder function. Several physiological factors can contribute to the onset of urinary incontinence, including events such as vaginal childbirth, the onset of menopause, and the natural process of aging. These occurrences can lead to the deconditioning of the pelvic floor muscles.

During vaginal childbirth, the pelvic floor muscles may undergo stress and trauma, which can result in their weakening over time. Similarly, menopause brings about hormonal changes that can impact the elasticity and strength of these muscles, making them less effective in maintaining urinary continence. Additionally, as individuals age, the general loss of muscle tone and flexibility in the pelvic region can further exacerbate the issue, making urinary incontinence more likely to occur.

In essence, the weakening of pelvic floor muscles due to factors like vaginal childbirth, menopause, and aging can significantly contribute to the development of urinary incontinence. Maintaining the health and strength of these muscles through appropriate exercises and lifestyle choices is crucial in addressing and preventing this condition.
