Self-management exercises improve continence in men

  • Comment

Self-management training significantly improves lower urinary tract symptoms in men who have continence problems due to prostate cancer radiotherapy, according to a recent study.

Researchers at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Surrey and the Royal Marsden Hospital Foundation Trust examined 22 men who displayed moderate to severe urinary symptoms for more than three months after radiotherapy and compared them with 43 men showing similar symptoms.

The self-management training comprised pelvic floor muscle exercises, bladder retraining, patient education and problem solving and coping strategies.
