CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — Urinary incontinence is a sensitive issue that often causes frustration and embarrassment. The challenges presented by this medical problem are real, but they’re not something you just have to live with anymore.

Don’t let incontinence rob you of the quality of life you deserve. If you’re ready to take control of your health and restore your confidence, the solution is as simple as picking up the phone to get in touch with Prolong Medical Center.

“We have safe, easy and effective treatments,” clinic manager Neal Nowland said. “At Prolong, your discretion and comfort are the top priority.”

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 such as prostate enlargement, menopause and childbirth all cause the pelvic floor muscles to weaken and descend, leading to bladder leakage and frequent urges.

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 over 11,000 contractions during each half-hour session. This causes the pelvic floor to lift, which means better urinary control and fewer episodes of leakage.

“There’s also no downtime,” Nowland said. “Once you leave our office, you’re good to resume all your normal daily activities.”

Emsella is approved by the FDA for the treatment of both male and female incontinence. In clinical studies, 95% of patients experienced significant improvement with six sessions over three weeks, plus periodic follow-up appointments. 

Approximately 40% of incontinence patients at Prolong Medical Center are men, Nowland said. Male incontinence often overlaps with other health concerns such as erectile dysfunction, which the clinic also addresses.

“We get just as many husbands in here as we do wives,” he added. “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.”

At Prolong Medical Center, the intimate health concerns of every patient are treated with the utmost discretion. The clinic offers a multifaceted approach to wellness by providing advanced procedures that treat the root causes of various conditions, not just the symptoms.

Along with incontinence, patients at Prolong Medical Center are experiencing unprecedented long-term results from acoustic wave therapy for erectile dysfunction. This completely noninvasive therapy targets erectile dysfunction on the cellular level to boost blood flow and facilitate spontaneous, satisfying erections whenever the time is right.

Solving the problem of erectile dysfunction requires consistency and patience, and Prolong Medical Center is dedicated to meeting every patient where they are. The clinic maintains an 85% success rate in treating impotence with acoustic wave therapy, defining “success” as the ability to achieve and sustain an erection.

“No one wants to discuss it, but the reality is more than 50% of men and women will deal with ED or urinary incontinence in their lifetime,” Nowland said. “These are common problems that can be treated.”

Voters in the Best of Southern Utah contest have awarded Prolong Medical Center back-to-back gold medals for urinary incontinence treatment as well as three consecutive golds for men’s health, which Nowland said speaks to the patient experience they strive to create. The staff is committed to helping every patient feel more confident and achieve a higher quality of life through cutting-edge therapies.
