Continence

Continence

At Burnett Medical Centre, we understand how challenging continence issues can be for men and women of all ages. And you are certainly not alone with over five million Australians experiencing some form of incontinence.

Continence issues can occur naturally through the ageing process, from injury, illness or post surgery, from weight gain and during or post pregnancy.

Typically the underlying cause leading to partial, episodic or regular incontinence involves muscle or nerve weakness that affect the bladder’s ability to hold or pass urine.

The good (make that … excellent!) news is that these weakened muscles can be strengthened and continence restored for men and women of all ages right here in Bundaberg.

Our commitment to our community

At Burnett Medical Centre, we have invested in state-of-the-art equipment that involves non-invasive, fully dressed treatments using the Emsella urinary incontinence device.

Emsella is a painless, FDA and TGA Approved solution for incontinence with no downtime.

Patients firstly come in for an assessment and then if eligible you will be recommended a typical course of six treatments with top up treatments every three to four months to maintain your continence for the longer term.

Each treatment involves sitting for 20 to 30 minutes on the Emsella chair. You will be fully clothed and experience a light contracting sensation of the internal muscles in your pelvis. This process strengthens the entire pelvic floor, which can lead to improved bladder control and reduced bladder leakage issues associated with urinary incontinence.

How does the Emsella chair work?

The Emsella chair gives over 11,000 “supramaximal contractions” which are similar to Kegel / pelvic floor contractions, but much stronger, strengthening and tightening the entire pelvic floor.

The process is painless although patients do describe the sensation of the muscle contractions as a bit “weird”. There are no side effects and the Emsella treatments can only improve your continence situation from less severe to fully restored bladder function.

Next steps...

Book in for an initial continence consultation with Dr Ayobami Adeniji (Dr Ayo), our Practice Principal. Dr Ayo has undergone extensive training in the use of the Emsella chair and continence management.

Dr Ayobami Adeniji will discuss how the Emsella chair works, ask you questions about your medical history and medications. You will learn about different continence treatment methods, ask questions and develop a plan to improve your situation.
