leva® for Urinary Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

leva® for UI and PFD

Were you aware you have pelvic floor muscles that support your organs such as your bladder and bowels? If you are experiencing urinary leakage when you walk or exercise this could be from a difficult childbirth or surgery that can lead to pelvic floor muscle weakness. Have limited time for office visits? There is an answer!

Many times the cause is simply unknown. Since there are muscles supporting your bladder and pelvic organs, losing their strength can lead to leaking problems.  Latest advancements in digital pelvic floor strengthening now offer hope for fewer urinary incontinence symptoms and regained continence.

What is leva®?

With the development of a new FDA approved non-surgical device called leva®, you can begin to regain pelvic floor muscle strength and be on the path to better self-confidence all in the privacy of your home. Patients are regaining movement without fear of leakage or constant bathroom trips.

Dr. Christi is one of the first to bring leva® to patients in the Houston, Texas area for treatment of stress, mixed and mild to moderate urgency urinary incontinence.

How Does leva® Work?

This device consists of 2 components designed to help train your pelvic floor muscles back into shape while providing feedback on your progress saving you time all in the privacy of your home. In just one initial session, Dr. Christi will prescribe the device and offer personal instruction on its use prior to beginning the training program.

With its unique ability to allow digital visualization of pelvic floor muscle areas and feedback on effectiveness of use, you can track, share and monitor your rehabilitation process.

The two components include:

  • leva® Pelvic Digital Health System
  • EmbaGYN Pelvic Floor Exerciser
