Brief Summary:
In this study, the effect of dynamic neuromuscular stabilization (DNS) exercise on urinary flow and quality of life in individuals with dysfunctional voiding was investigated. The 34 participants included in the study were randomized into two groups: the experiment in which DNS exercises were applied and the standard therapy group in which the manual application was applied. Uroflowmetry, Voiding Symptom Score (DVSS), Short Form-36 Quality of Life Assessment Short Form were applied to all participants at baseline and at week 6.

Detailed Description:
In this study, the effect of dynamic neuromuscular stabilization (DNS) exercise on urinary flow and quality of life in individuals with dysfunctional voiding was investigated. This experimental study was conducted with patients who applied to UroKlinik in Istanbul between March 2021 and June 2023 and were diagnosed with dysfunctional voiding. The 34 participants included in the study were randomized into two groups: the experiment in which DNS exercises were applied and the standard therapy group in which the manual application was applied. Voiding Symptom Score (DVSS), Short Form-36 Quality of Life Assessment Short Form and Uroflowmetry test were applied to all participants before and at week 6.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Uroflowmetry - Maximum flow rate (Qmax) [ Time Frame: at the baseline and at week 6. ]

    Uroflowmetry gives information about urine flow rate and voiding pattern.

    *Qmax (mL/s): Qmax is the fastest stream measured in mL/s.


  2. Uroflowmetry - Average flow rate (Qave) [ Time Frame: at the baseline and at week 6. ]

    Uroflowmetry gives information about urine flow rate and voiding pattern.

    *Qave (mL/s): Qave is the average stream measured in mL/s.


  3. Uroflowmetry - Corrected maximum flow rate (cQmax) [ Time Frame: at the baseline and at week 6. ]

    Uroflowmetry gives information about urine flow rate and voiding pattern.

    *cQmax (mL/s/√ mL): cQmax is the precise assessment of fastest stream, especially at high volumes. Is it estimated Qmax/√ VV.


  4. Uroflowmetry - Flow time (FT) [ Time Frame: at the baseline and at week 6. ]

    Uroflowmetry gives information about urine flow rate and voiding pattern.

    *FT (s): FT is the time over which measurable flow actually occurs.


  5. Uroflowmetry - Voiding volume (VV) [ Time Frame: at the baseline and at week 6. ]

    Uroflowmetry gives information about urine flow rate and voiding pattern.

    *VV (ml): VV indicates the amount of voiding.


  6. Uroflowmetry - Residual urine (RU) [ Time Frame: at the baseline and at week 6. ]

    Uroflowmetry gives information about urine flow rate and voiding pattern.

    *RU (ml): RU is the amount of urine that is left behind in the bladder after you are done urinating.


  7. Dysfunctional Voiding and Incontinence Symptom Score [ Time Frame: at the baseline and at week 6. ]
    It gives information about voiding and incontinence symptoms. The questionnaire contains fourteen questions about symptoms and quality of life. The total score ranges from 0 to 35 and a score above 8.5 indicates abnormalities.

  8. Short Form 36 [ Time Frame: at the baseline and at week 6. ]
    It gives information about health related quality of life. The total score of the scale ranges from 0 to 100, and a high score indicates a high quality of life.
