Effect of Physiotherapy on Postmenopausal Women: A Review of Literature
Keywords:post menopausal, urinary incontinence, insomnia, low bone density, insomnia, pelvic floor muscles and osteoporosis
We pursue a review of literature on the effect of physiotherapy on
postmenopausal women and engender the list of evidence reviewed
articles. The articles on postmenopausal women that were finally
chosen for review had to include a focus point on the key term, i.e.,
postmenopausal, urinary incontinence, insomnia, low bone density, pelvic
floor muscles, and osteoporosis. After a review of all the literature, it
was concluded that regular physical activity appears to be an alternative
method to reduce urinary incontinence, insomnia, REM latency, and pain.
It also helps in improving BMD, quality of life, dynamic balance, posture,
muscle strength, and sleep quality that occur during the postmenopausal
period. Physiotherapy has a significant effect on urinary incontinence,
insomnia, and osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. However, more
randomized clinical trials need to be conducted in this area for more
