Several treatment modalities for children suffering from monosymptomathic nocturnal enuresis are available including drugs, alarms, acupuncture, pelvic floor training and biofeedback. The aim of this study is to to test if Paula Method (circular muscle exercise) can be an another treatment modality.
Paula method is based on circular muscle exercises. The theory behind the Paula method is that all sphincters in the human body work simultaneosly, mutually affecting one another possibly mediated by "oscillation" of the spinal cord. According to this theory, exercising the ring muscles in a certain area of the body will result in strengthening the circular muscles in other areas. This method was found to to be efficacious for treatment of urinary stress incontinence in women.

Involuntary discharge of URINE after expected age of completed development of urinary control. This can happen during the daytime (DIURNAL ENURESIS) while one is awake or during sleep (NOCTURNAL ENURESIS). Enuresis can be in children or in adults (as persistent primary enuresis and secondary adult-onset enuresis).
A state arrived at through prolonged and strong contraction of a muscle. Studies in athletes during prolonged submaximal exercise have shown that muscle fatigue increases in almost direct proportion to the rate of muscle glycogen depletion. Muscle fatigue in short-term maximal exercise is associated with oxygen lack and an increased level of blood and muscle lactic acid, and an accompanying increase in hydrogen-ion concentration in the exercised muscle.
A method of recording heart motion and internal structures by combining ultrasonic imaging with exercise testing (EXERCISE TEST) or pharmacologic stress.
One of two ganglionated neural networks which together form the ENTERIC NERVOUS SYSTEM. The myenteric (Auerbach's) plexus is located between the longitudinal and circular muscle layers of the gut. Its neurons project to the circular muscle, to other myenteric ganglia, to submucosal ganglia, or directly to the epithelium, and play an important role in regulating and patterning gut motility. (From FASEB J 1989;3:127-38)
