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... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How does global posture change as the population ages?

The development of an open access database of full body images and global spine parameters will provide spine surgeons with normative data that can be used to guide clinical decision making and surgical planning. Furthermore, the database can be used by researchers to obtain control measurements for comparison in studies of various spine, and potentially non-spine, pathologies. Use of survey questionnaires and EOS x-ray... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Are there clinically meaningful subgroups of low back pain (LBP) defined by lifestyle, clinical features, and/or genomics?

LBP is the #1 cause of years lived with disability worldwide (GBD 2016), yet little is known about its underlying mechanisms. In standard clinical care, people with very different presentations of LBP are treated the same. Longitudinal survey items related to LBP, and data collection already planned by AoU (surveys + physical measurements + EHR + genomics) can be used to identify meaningful LBP subgroups that are connected... more »
