Best of Southern Utah voted Prolong Medical Center a gold medal for incontinence treatment.
CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — Are you tired of that “always got to go” feeling? Involuntary bladder leakage can throw a wrench into your plans, but urinary incontinence doesn’t have to control your life anymore. Take back your health and dignity with a breakthrough treatment from Prolong Medical Center.
Best of Southern Utah voters recently awarded Prolong Medical Center a gold medal for incontinence treatment for the second year in a row, which clinic manager Neal Nowland said speaks to the patient experience they strive to create. The staff is committed to helping every patient feel more confident and more comfortable through cutting-edge therapies.
“Your success is our primary objective,” he added. “We’re dedicated to working with you to ensure the best possible outcome.”
More than 25 million Americans struggle with incontinence, and its prevalence only increases with age. Although more common in women over 50, it also affects men. Factors including menopause, childbirth and prostate enlargement all cause the pelvic floor muscles to weaken and descend, leading to bladder leakage and frequent urges.
Studies show that roughly 1 in 3 women experience bladder weakness, and that incontinence is three times more common than seasonal allergies. Patients may experience stress incontinence (urine leakage caused by pressure on the bladder), urge incontinence (sudden, intense urges to urinate frequently) or mixed incontinence (a combination of both).
Prolong Medical Center has revolutionized incontinence treatment in Southern Utah by offering Emsella, a unique technology that provides a completely noninvasive option. While fully clothed, patients sit comfortably on a chair that utilizes high-intensity electromagnetic energy to quickly deliver thousands of supramaximal muscle contractions to the pelvic floor.
These muscle contractions, similar to Kegel exercises, restrengthen the pelvic floor muscles to better support the bladder. The body will experience up to 11,200 contractions during each 28-minute session. This causes the pelvic floor to lift, which means better urinary control and fewer episodes of leakage.
Approximately 40% of incontinence patients at Prolong Medical Center are male, and Emsella is approved by the FDA for the treatment of both male and female incontinence. During clinical studies, 95% of patients experienced significant improvement with six sessions over three weeks, plus periodic follow-up appointments.
“We get just as many husbands in here as we do wives,” Nowland said. “In fact, many of the people we’ve treated so far are couples coming in together. They feel comfortable together, and both understand that each is suffering from similar issues.”
Prolong Medical Center patient Valerie H. struggled with incontinence for years before learning about Emsella. She experienced remarkable improvement after just a few treatments. Her last visit was more than six months ago, and she’s still satisfied with the results.
“I’m not looking for the bathroom the minute I walk into a store or worrying about if my seat is close enough to the bathroom at an event,” she said. “I feel like a different person.”
“After giving birth to six children and living with incontinence for 15 years, I was considering bladder surgery,” another patient, Melanie S., said. “Thankfully, I found Prolong first. The results have been amazing and came quickly. I have cried a lot of happy tears lately!”
