CEU Course Description
Millions of women are afflicted with urinary incontinence. The first section of this CEU course determines the incidence and impact of pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and colorectal distress, and quality of life by birth mode for women in the chronic postpartum period. It is a cross-sectional study including twenty-one postpartum subjects aged 18-45 who had given birth in the last 36 months and the incidence of urinary incontinence in the given group. The next section of the course determines the effect of pelvic muscle exercises on urinary incontinence and self-esteem of elderly females with stress urinary incontinence. This section revolves around an interventional study of fifty females aged 60-74 which involved anatomy education of the pelvic floor, muscle contraction education, and group training. The final section appraises the current evidence of the effectiveness of alternatives to pelvic floor muscle training for treatment of urinary incontinence. Here we discuss what is already known on this topic, as well as information on the different methods such as abdominal training, Pilates, and the Paula methods. There are also recommendations for further research into the techniques for pelvic floor incontinence. This course is based on articles by the Journal of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, Global Journal of Health and Science, and APA Journal of Physiotherapy.
