This study examines the effect of adding so called Kaatsu training to pelvic floor muscle training. Half the participants will perform Kaatsu training on their thigh muscles followed by pelvic floor muscle training. The other half will receive pelvic floor muscle training alone.
Stress urinary incontinence (SU) is a common problem among adult women . Pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) is recommended as first line treatment but PFMT is not always efficient and some women cannot comply with the intensive PFMT needed to obtain effect because of weakened or damaged muscles caused by vaginal delivery and age related changes.
Hypothetically alternative methods could be used to enhance the effect of a strength-training program. A low intensity training program with a simultaneous partial occlusion of the blood supply for the training muscle, so called "Kaatsu" training has been found to increase muscle strength faster than ordinary strength training but with much less effort. It seems difficult to make occlusion of the pelvic floor muscles during PFMT but a study found that low intensity training of the quadriceps femoris with partial occlusion of the blood supply did not only increase muscle strength of the quadriceps femoris muscle but also of the biceps humeri muscle if that muscle was trained with low-load training and no occlusion in the same training session. The specific reason for this this "cross-transfer effect" could not be fully explained but it was believed to be caused by a systemic effect caused by growth hormones. The aim of this study is therefore to examine if Kaatsu training offered in relation to a low-load PFMT program can increase the effect of PFMT in women with SUI

Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
Inflammation of the parametrium, the connective tissue of the pelvic floor, extending from the subserous coat of the uterus laterally between the layers of the BROAD LIGAMENT.
The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
A chronic PELVIC PAIN characterized by pain deep in the buttock that may radiate to posterior aspects of the leg. It is caused by the piriformis muscle compressing or irritating the SCIATIC NERVE due to trauma, hypertrophy, inflammation or anatomic variations.
