The Effect of Ankle Position on Pelvic Floor Muscle Contraction Activity in Women

Chen HL, Lin YC, Chien WJ, Huang WC, Lin HY & Chen PL. The Journal of Urology. 2009 March; 181: 1217-1223


Women’s Health Distance Journal Club 1/08/2014

Jacqueline M York, PT, DPT, CHES

Purpose: To examine the effects of ankle position on PFM activity and MVC.

Participants: 31 women between 26 to 60 (30-56 later in article?) years old were recruited from teaching hospital in northern Taiwan. One participant experienced 5 pregnancies and another 3, however type of delivery not specified. Parity of other participants was not directly described. It was not described whether or not participants were continent.

Inclusion Criteria: Women who could correctly perform PFM contraction and rise up on toes

Exclusion Criteria: Pregnant, Previous gynecologic surgery or any foot/ankle joint disease/disorder

Standardized protocol:  Subjects placed separately in private rooms. Protocol was explained to subject, consent signed, PFM contraction taught and confirmed via EMG biofeedback with intra-vaginal probe. Subjects contract PFM in eight different positions. Order of positioning was chosen at random via drawing from a box.  Subjects performed three PFM contractions in each position in a pre-defined, randomized order. A ten second rest was allowed after each contraction and a three-minute rest was allowed between each position. PFM contractions were recorded in four active and four passive ankle positions. Active positions included dorsiflexion and plantar flexion with and without arms raised. Passive positions included plantar flexion and dorsiflexion on 2.5 cm and 4.5 cm wedge. The subjects visualized the contraction on a computer screen and the FemiScan equipment recorded maximum and mean MVC amplitude for each contraction.
