The aim of the case study was to determine the effectiveness of massage in the management of stress urinary incontinence.
A 50-year-old woman with many years' history of stress incontinence was treated with massage.
The methodology involved positioning of the patient and massage according to an original method including the initial, main, and final parts.
The applied therapy contributed to a decreased amount of urine leakage (immediately following the therapy—by 21%, a month later—by 100%) and improved the quality of patient's life.
A decrease in the amount of urinary leakage was observed immediately after therapy. One month after termination of massage therapy, a complete remission of symptoms was observed.
The presented massage procedure had a positive effect on the amount of urinary leakage on effort immediately after therapy and on few-month follow-up produced complete relief from the distress.
