Deep and Superficial Pelvic Floor Muscle Responses to a Pain Stimulus in Vestibulodynia
Previous studies have suggested that protective responses in the pelvic floor muscles (PFMs), described in terms of hypertonicity and over-reactivity, are associated with and may worsen the symptoms of provoked vestibulodynia ...
Surface Electromyography of the Pelvic Floor Musculature: Reliability and Validity of a Novel Electrode Design
Purpose: Intravaginal probes used for recording electromyography (EMG) from the pelvic floor muscles (PFMs) likely record activity from nearby muscles (crosstalk), and move during functional tasks, causing motion artifact ...
Differences in pelvic floor muscle activation and functional output between women with and without stress urinary incontinence
Introduction: The primary purpose of this research was to determine whether women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) demonstrate pelvic floor muscle (PFM) strength or endurance deficits and/or changes in the motor ...
Reliability of electromyography detection systems for the pelvic floor muscles
The purpose of this study was to investigate the reliability of three different electromyography (EMG) detection systems commonly used to acquire EMG data from the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) at rest, during maximum voluntary ...
