DESCRIPTION

This unique book bridges the gap between evidence-based research and clinical practice. Edited by Kari Bo who has done pioneering research in this area, each chapter focuses on the evidence, from basic studies (theories or rationales for the treatment) and RCTs (appraisal of effectiveness), to the implications of these for clinical practice, and finally in recommendations on how to start, continue and progress treatment.

Detailed treatment strategies - pelvic floor muscle training, biofeedback, electrical stimulation.Information on pelvic floor dysfunction in specific groups - men, children, elite athletes, the elderly, pregnancy, neurological diseases.Detailed illustrations of pelvic floor anatomy and related neuroanatomy/neurophysiology.MRIs and ultrasounds showing normal and dysfunctional pelvic floor.Clinical practice guidelines.Critical appraisal of RCTs.Strategies to reduce drop-out in conservative treatment.
