The effect of Urinary Incontinence on the body balance of young female athletes
Summary:
Urinary incontinence is a phenomenon that occurs in 1 in 5 women. In sports, the occurrence of stress urinary incontinence is more frequent, especially in female athletes involved in high-impact sports (e.g. volleyball, trampoline) and is associated with the insufficient functioning of the pelvic floor muscles, which at the same time have a stabilizing role in body. The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the effect of urinary incontinence on the static and dynamic balance of the body in young female athletes. For the needs of the research, 9 female athletes with incontinence and 9 female athletes without incontinence were selected based on a questionnaire, matched in terms of their sport and level. Athletes in the incontinent group performed more poorly than athletes in the nonincontinent group, however, the differences were not statistically significant, possibly due to the mild degree of incontinence of the participants in the experimental group.
