Pelvic floor rehabilitation during and after pregnancy for the prevention of stress urinary incontinence
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Pelvic floor muscle therapy (PFMT) is effective for preventing and treating urinary incontinence (UI), especially if initiated during pregnancy (SOR: A, systematic reviews). PFMT started postpartum may not have an effect on urinary incontinence (UI) in primiparous women evaluated after 6 months (SOR: B, based on a single high-quality RCT). There is minimal risk involved in PFMT as a treatment for UI.
