Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine if pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) improves lower urinary tract function in people with multiple sclerosis (MS). The authors found that a nine-week PFMT programme improved the function of the PFM, reduced the symptoms associated with lower urinary tract dysfunction and increased the quality of life in people with MS.
