Description

Exercise Strategies for Improving Quality of Life in Women with Stress Urinary Incontinence

By Grace Donovan, B.S., C.S.C.S. and Sara Lynn Terrell, Ph.D., C.S.C.S

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) impacts twice as many women as men and may present a barrier to performing exercise in some women.  Pelvic floor muscles (PFM) provide support for internal organs like the bladder, yet pelvic floor dysfunction is implicated as a factor for developing SUI in women of all ages.  Exercise modalities that strengthen pelvic floor muscles (PFM) have been explored since the invention of Kegel exercises.  Alternative exercises such as abdominal and postural training, breathing exercises, and yoga poses present potential exercise avenues which also could improve PFM strength.
