We hypothesized that verbal postural instructions during abdominopelvic exercises would enhance PFMs activation and strength resulting in improved symptoms of SUI in women. PFMs electromyographical (EMG) activity and strength were quantified during a maximal voluntary contraction before and after two interventions in women with SUI. SUI symptoms were assessed using a 3-day bladder diary.
