Subjects will place a surface electrode on their perineal area after a bladder-filling protocol. Transabdominal ultrasound will image the base of the bladder at rest, voluntary pelvic floor contraction, with the surface electrical stimulation and with a combined pelvic floor contraction and electrical stimulation active.

It is estimated that about 30% of women cannot voluntarily contract the pelvic floor muscles (PFM). PFM training (PFMT) represents the first therapeutic option for the treatment of female ...
This study aims to investigate the effects of pelvic floor muscle exercises, electrical stimulation and taping in patients with overactive bladder
Pregnancy and vaginal delivery are considered as the main risk factors for damage to the pelvic floor. There are various ways to measure the strength of the pelvic floor and to evaluate fu...
Injuries to the pelvic floor muscles and fascias during delivery and childbirth may lead to urinary incontinence (25-45 %), faecal incontinence (11-45%), pelvic organ prolapse (7-23%), sex...
Recent studies have found that pelvic floor muscle training can relieve pelvic organ prolapse related symptoms. However, the rate of cure or improvement of symptoms with exercise prescript...
Pelvic floor dysfunction is a common problem, particularly for women. A weakness in the pelvic floor muscles can lead to one or more disorders developing, such as urinary incontinence or a pelvic orga...
The pelvic floor is a complex structure that supports the pelvic organs and provides resting tone and voluntary control of the urethral and anal sphincters. Dysfunction of or injury to the pelvic floo...
To describe the principles of pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT), review the evidence for PFPT as a treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction, and summarize the current recommendations for PFPT as a fi...
Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is often associated with female sexual dysfunction. We investigated which pelvic floor muscle (PFM) parameters (strength, power, and endurance) are associated with im...
To describe the situation of early stage of pelvic floor function and investigate the effect factors in postpartum women. A retrospective survey was conducted, and women who did regular examination a...
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.
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
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.
Prolonged failure of muscle relaxation after contraction. This may occur after voluntary contractions, muscle percussion, or electrical stimulation of the muscle. Myotonia is a characteristic feature of MYOTONIC DISORDERS.
Non-invasive bladder cancer is a cancer that is only in the inner lining of the bladder. Invasive bladder cancer is cancer that has spread into the deeper walls of the bladder. When the cancer has spread outside the bladder to other parts of the body, th...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
