Effect of Combined Pallof Press and Kegels Training for Urinary Incontinence in Multigravida Women and Quality of Life
Urinary incontinence has become one of the main health issue faced by women after pregnancy. It’s mainly due to inadequate care and neglect to the pelvic floor muscles in regaining strength leading to muscle weakness and Urinary incontinence. Traditional Kegel’s focus only on pelvic floor muscles while core stability and abdominal strength also plays important role in preventing the occurrence of urinary incontinence.Aim and objective: The aim of the study was to find out the effects of combined Pallof press and Kegel’s exercise for urinary incontinence in multigravida women and quality of life.Methodology:30 women(group A-15,group B-15) of age group between 30 - 40years, participated in simple experimental study for a duration of 8 weeks. Subjects were assessed by RUIS - Revised urinary incontinence scale and IIQ7 –Incontinence impact questionnaire. Result : The critical value of U at p<0.5is 64 which means its statistically significant in controlling incontinence and critical value is not significant for IIQ7. Urinary incontinence occurrence frequency is high in women without core stability and abdominal strength. The study also revealed group of Kegel’s exercise’s alone still faces the occurrence of urinary incontinence more than those practiced both pallof press and kegels. If the core muscles doesn’t have adequate strength and stability Kegels can’t alone control the issue in a successful and satisfactory way. Conclusion:Subjects who practiced both Kegel’s & Pallof press exercise shows less frequency of Urinary incontinence.
