The Effectiveness of Massage in Stress Urinary Incontinence—Case Study

Abstract Purpose: The aim of the case study was to determine the effectiveness of massage in the management of stress urinary incontinence. Design: A 50-year-old woman with many years’ history of stress incontinence was treated with massage. Methods: The methodology involved positioning of the patient and massage according to an original method including the initial, main, and final parts. Findings: The applied therapy contributed to a decreased amount of urine leakage (immediately following the therapy—by 21%, a month later—by 100%) and improved the quality of patient’s life. Conclusions: A decrease in the amount of urinary leakage was observed immediately after therapy. One month after termination of massage therapy, a complete remission of symptoms was observed. Clinical Relevance: The presented massage procedure had a positive effect on the amount of urinary leakage on effort immediately after therapy and on fewmonth follow-up produced complete relief from the distress.
