The Emsella Chair May Be Your Answer to Managing Urinary Incontinence

There is good news for those looking for options to manage incontinence. It is the recent availability of a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment known as the Emsella Chair.

“Wine-ing Down” Might Not Be As Harmless As You Think.
