Urinary incontinence and other pelvic floor dysfunctions in female athletes in Brazil: A cross-sectional study.

Athletes are at higher risk to develop UI, loss of gas, and sexual dysfunctions, either practicing high-impact or strong-effort activities. Thus, pelvic floor must be considered as an entity and addressed as well. Also, women involved in long-term high-impact and strengthening sports should be advised of the impact of such activities on pelvic floor function and offered preventive PFD strategies as well.

Assessment of pelvic floor muscle function in women with and without low back pain using transabdominal ultrasound.

The results of this study indicate PFM dysfunction in individuals with LBP compared to those without LBP. The results could be beneficial to clinicians when assessing and prescribing therapeutic exercises for patients with LBP.

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy as Primary Treatment of Pelvic Floor Disorders With Urinary Urgency and Frequency-Predominant Symptoms.

This is probably because the physical activity levels in patients with mild to moderate POP were almost same as in age-matched healthy women.
