Pelvic wave is a non-surgical and non-invasive method for treating urinary incontinence (UI).
How the Pelvic Wave Works
Pelvic Wave is a chair that releases electromagnets to the patient’s pelvic area. These electromagnets stimulate tissue up to 4 inches in depth and causes the pelvic muscles to contract, which in turn creates a neuromuscular response. The brain, muscles, nerves, and bladder are then re-synchronized to function as they should.
No probes or wires are used and nothing penetrates or even touches the patient’s body. You don’t even have to remove your clothing in order to use the Pelvic Wave.
Effectiveness of the Pelvic Wave
The Pelvic Wave has been approved by the FDA and more than 40 clinical studies have supported its effectiveness.
The involuntary contractions created by the Pelvic Wave have been proven to build new neural pathways between the brain and muscle grouping, which in turn creates a long-term rehabilitation effect.
What the Pelvic Wave Treats
The Pelvic Wave is effective at treating more than just urinary continence. You may also use this technology to find relief from:
- Uterine and vaginal prolapse
- Neuromuscular re-education
- Post-surgical rehabilitation
- Sexual performance and enhancement
- General pain

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Involved in a Pelvic Wave Treatment?
Pelvic Wave is painless and non-invasive. Patients sit in the Pelvic Wave Chair with their clothes on. Once seated, a certified operator will turn on the power supply to begin treatment. Settings and power intensity are adjusted based on the specific patient’s parameters.
Each treatment is a total of 20 minutes. Both men and women can be treated.
How Many Treatments Does It Take?
Prior to treatment, each patient fills out a survey to determine their baseline condition. Our standard treatment protocol is 24 sessions over a consecutive 8-week period. A typical schedule is three sessions per week.
Once the initial treatment has ended, we recommend bi-annual visits every 6 months (3 treatments in a week) for pelvic floor maintenance.
Will I Feel Any Discomfort?
During treatment, patients will experience a level of tingling and a contraction of the pelvic floor and surrounding muscle structures. Like most “workouts,” patients may experience some soreness and muscle fatigue at the end of treatment. This is typical within the first 2-3 weeks of the program.
Over time, the muscular structure is strengthened and new neural pathways are established between the brain and the pelvic floor structure, generating positive long-term effects.
Are There Any Contraindications?
We do not treat patients who have the following conditions:
- Who are pregnant or think they may be pregnant.
- Have an implantable cardiac pacemaker or implantable cardiac defibrillator.
- Have a history of cardiac arrhythmia or atrial fibrillation (AFib).
Any Additional Side Effects?
In addition to the strengthening of the pelvic floor muscular structure, other surrounding muscles are also improved. For women, these include but are not limited to the gluteal region, vaginal wall, hamstring, and abdomen. For men, these include but are not limited to the gluteal region, hamstring, and abdomen.
Additionally, Pelvic Wave treatments can also increase urinary stream and enhance sexual performance.
