Abstract

Background: Urinary incontinence (UI) is a multifactorial and prevalent disorder among the aged women. Physical activities are believed to have challenging roles in deterioration of the UI. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of standardized weightlifting on urodynamic parameters in the urinary continent and incontinent individuals.

Methods: Twenty-four UI morbid and twenty-one control subjects were participated in a standardized weightlifting task while underwent to multichannel cystometry tests in two empty and full bladder conditions. Maximum weightlifting force (MWF) and vesical and abdominal pressures were measured to calculate the detrusor pressure.

Results: Findings showed that the UI participants with full bladder have significant higher abdominal, vesical and detrusor pressures in comparison to the controls; but in empty bladder condition, only the abdominal pressure of the UI morbid group was significantly greater. The MWF was not significantly changed between the UI and control groups. The MWF was also not correlated to the detrusor pressure among the UI participants and full bladder controls.

Conclusion: Weightlifting till the subject’s maximum force can neither produce incontinence in healthy subjects nor deteriorate the UI patients’ conditions.

Keywords: detrusor pressure, multichannel cystometry, standardized weightlifting, urinary incontinence
