AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Is optimal musculoskeletal health associated with bladder health?

Musculoskeletal conditions particularly low back pain have been shown to be commonly associated with urinary incontinence throughout the female lifespan. We hypothesize that women with more musculoskeletal pain or injury history will have more LUTS. We postulate that both core muscle and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction contribute to this correlation. We propose to study this in a prospective observational study of women in multiple age groups.
