Based on adequate physiotherapeutic diagnostics a proper patient selection and consequent pelvic floor muscle training will have a high cure/improvement rate, also long term. This webinar demonstrates the role of pelvic physiotherapy assessment for female urinary incontinence in clinical (research) practice. The webinar further presents technique and a practice protocol for physiotherapy assessment process, including troubleshooting and interpretation. The assessment process, which is used to formulate a specific treatment plan, investigates the nature of the underlying disorder and – if present – the urinary incontinence severity
