Metryki PlumX:

In Poland and worldwide, many women struggle with dysfunctions of the urogenital system. Therefore, therapeutic methods should be sought that will prove effective in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles (PFM).

The aim of the study was the electromyographic evaluation of the effect of endovaginal electrical stimulation and exercise on the bioelectrical activity of the PFM in a young woman without urogenital dysfunction.

Case report
The study involved a 20-year-old, childless woman (nulliparous) who did not show dysfunctions within the urogenital system. For the period of 8 weeks, she performed PFM exercises three times a week. In addition, she underwent 24 treatment sessions of PFM electrostimulation using an endovaginal electrode. Before and after the therapeutic intervention, the bioelectrical activity of PFM was measured. After a series of endovaginal electrostimulation treatments and exercises, changes in the bioelectrical activity of the pelvic floor muscles were noted.

The presented case report shows that endovaginal electrostimulation combined with PFM exercises can be an effective tool influencing the changes in the bioelectrical activity of the pelvic floor muscles. Further clinical trials should be conducted to verify the effectiveness of the proposed physiotherapeutic methods in preventing PFM dysfunction, as well as to determine the appropriate parameters of endovaginal electrical stimulation.
