From “the Core to the Floor” with Emsculpt Neo and Emsella
Core stability is important. The core is made up of the transversus abdominis, multifidus, internal and external obliques, rectus abdominis, erector spinae, the longissimus thoracis, the diaphragm, and the pelvic floor muscles. The core muscles support the spine and the pelvis, and physical movements such as breathing, sneezing and lifting heavy things. The fundamental function of the core is to generate intra-abdominal pressure. This pressure creates spinal and pelvic stability. When our core moves, the muscles contract together in a balanced way to keep us stable. A strong core gives you a good posture, and helps you sustain less physical injuries, lower back and neck pain.
The Pelvic Floor
The pelvic floor consists of a group of muscles forming a hammock to support the pelvic organs like the uterus, vagina, bladder, small bowel and rectum. Every time we breathe, it contracts and the pelvic floor pushes up against the abdominal contents while the diaphragm pushes down. This supports the bladder and bowels, and creates an increase in intra-abdominal pressure which increases the stability of our spine. If the core muscles are weak, the intra-abdominal pressure will not be resisted. This can result in leaks.
How Emsculpt Neo and Emsella Strengthen the Core
Emsella and Emsculpt Neo can help strengthen your core efficiently. Both treatments are non-invasive and have no downtime. Emsella strengthens the pelvic floor muscles, while Emsculpt Neo gives an extra boost by strengthening the abdominal muscles that provide better support for the pelvic floor muscles. A strong core will give a better posture and a stronger back for pregnant mothers. It can also reduce lower back pain. Emsella and Emsculpt Neo are great boosters for mothers as they firm and tone their muscles.
Both Emsella and Emsculpt Neo use High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) waves to penetrate deep into the pelvic floor muscles and induce supramaximal muscle contractions. These contractions result in a deep remodelling of the muscles’ inner structure. Within the inner layers of the muscles, there is growth of myofibrils (muscle hypertrophy) and creation of new protein strands and muscle fibres (muscle hyperplasia). This redefines and tones the muscles by giving them greater density and volume.
A strong core provides support for your spine and coordination. It helps you control your movements even as you age and helps you avoid other problems. Feel livelier and stronger with the Emsculpt Neo/Emsella combined core treatment. Book your session today with any of these clinics.
