BACKGROUND More and more frequently stress urinary incontinence affects young healthy women. Hence, early implementation of effective preventive strategies in nulliparous continent women is essential, including pelvic floor muscle training. An initial evaluation based on the bioelectrical activity of the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) during whole-body(More)
We examined pelvic floor muscles (PFM) activity (%MVC) in twenty nulliparous women by body position during exercise as well as the activation of abdominal muscles and the gluteus maximus during voluntary contractions of the PFMs. Pelvic floor muscle activity was recorded using a vaginal probe during five experimental trials. Activation of transversus(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the bioelectric activity of the spinal muscles on both sides of the primary curvature, both statically (in a habitual posture) and dynamically (in an active attempt to correct the curvature). The study comprised two groups: one group of 110 children and adolescents aged 6 to 17 (mean age 11.5 ± 3.0) with clinical(More)
Breast cancer-related lymphedema is one of the complications resulting from treatment. It is defined as arm oedema in the breast cancer patients caused by interruption of the flow of the axillary lymphatic system from surgery or radiation therapy, which results in the accumulation of fluid in the subcutaneous tissue of the arm, with a decrease in tissue(More)
BACKGROUND. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common upper limb compression neuropathy. Postoperative rehabilitation improves the function of the limb. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of rehabilitation in patients who had undergone endoscopic vs. open surgical carpal tunnel release. MATERIAL AND METHODS. Twenty-six patients were divided into(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of a 6-week sEMG-biofeedback-assisted pelvic floor muscle training program on pelvic floor muscle activity in young continent women. METHODS Pelvic floor muscle activity was recorded using a vaginal probe during five experimental trials. Biofeedback training was continued for 6 weeks, 3 times a(More)
