The aim of the study was to assess physical activity in subjects with overactive bladder OAB. The additional aim was to assess the relationships between physical activity and OAB risk factors.
Material and methods. We studied a total of 109 subjects (101 women and 8 men). The mean age was 33.30 years (SD = 11.15). The study was conducted with the use of a comprehensive online questionnaire. The research tools were: our proprietary questionnaire and the following questionnaires: OABSS, PSS-10, IPAQ-SF. The study population consisted of 51 subjects with OAB who scored ≥ 2 points for Q3-urgency and ≥ 3 points for the total score in the OABSS questionnaire. The clinical control group consisted of 58 healthy subjects.
Results. Physical activity in the study population was significantly lower (p = 0.039, t = 2.09) than in the clinical control group. Moreover, there was correlation between physical activity and hip size (r = -0.31, p < 0.05) In the clinical control group there was correlation between physical activity and stress (r = 0.36, p < 0.001) and between physical activity and WHR (r = 0.26, p < 0.05).
Conclusions. 1. Subjects with overactive bladder reduced their physical activity. 2. The poorest physical activity was found in patients with large hip size. 3. In subjects with overactive bladder, stress, age, BMI, waist size and intensity of condition were not related to physical activity. 4. Physical activity may be one of the efficient form of treatment for people with OAB.
