Pelvic floor issues can be more frequent and prominent in women that have given birth vaginally. Additionally, the onset of menopause may exacerbate any existing issues.
The most common pelvic floor issues for women are:
- Urinary Incontinence – An involuntary urinary leak when you sneeze, cough, laugh or exercise.
- Urge Incontinence – Is caused by an overactive bladder and frequent urges to go to the toilet where you may not be able to make it in time. This might include getting up multiple times in the night to have to go to the toilet or not being able to make a short car trip without busting to go to the toilet at the other end.
- Vaginal Laxity - a sense of ‘openness’ or laxity in the vagina can also be an issue. This can lead to a decreased sensation during sex. This can be particularly problematic following a vaginal delivery. The stretching and increased laxity of the tissues can cause the bladder to sag over the anterior wall of the vagina, which can interfere with the proper function of the bladder when it is full.

Its aim is to restore neuromuscular control in the pelvic region, particularly pelvic floor muscles and the bladder. By doing so, the pelvic floor muscles are strengthened and improved dramatically, the vaginal walls are tightened and urinary and urge incontinence is decreased.
The results are both instantaneous and ongoing. With as few as six treatment cycles in three weeks, patients strongly agree their incidence of stress urinary incontinence was improved by 95%.
After seeing women struggle with incontinence issues post pregnancy, Dr David Knight was intent on finding a safe and effective solutions for his patients with urinary and stress incontinence. Demeter is one of the first clinics in Australia to have the FDA and TGA approved Emsella chair.
