Table 2 The incidence of UI and POP, percentage of weak-RAMs, weak-PFMs and percentage of lumbago or dorsalgia in group of DRA and Non-DRA

From: The relationship of severity in diastasis recti abdominis and pelvic floor dysfunction: a retrospective cohort study

  DRA (n = 176) Non-DRA (n = 37) p value
UI 33 (20.2%) 7 (18.9%) 0.921
POP 13 (7.9%) 3 (8.3%) 0.935
Weak-RAMs 2 (1.2%) 1 (2.7%) 0.502
Weak-PFMs
Weak-PFMs (Type I) 128 (74.9%) 27 (79.4%) 0.572
Weak-PFMs (Type II) 69 (40.6%) 15 (44.1%) 0.703
Lumbago or Dorsalgia 127 (72.6%) 26 (70.3%) 0.777
  1. All of the data above showed as number of cases (valid percentage). DRA, diastasis of rectus abdominis; UI, urinary incontinence; POP, pelvic organ prolapse; RAMs, rectus abdominis muscle strength; PFMs, pelvic floor muscle strength
