About

The aim of this study is to compare the effects of motor imagery focused pelvic floor exercises and relaxation exercises used in the treatment of dysmenorrhea on pain and menstrual symptoms.

Full description

Quantitative research methods were used in the study and it was a randomized type study. The sample of the study consisted of women between the ages of 18-30 who volunteered to participate in the study, showed symptoms of dysmenorrhea and can be accessed online. The names of female participants who volunteered to participate in the study and met the inclusion criteria were written on papers and put in a bag. Papers will be randomly selected by the evaluator by drawing lots. Participants will be randomly divided into 3 groups: motor imagery focused pelvic floor exercise group, relaxation exercise group, and combined group. Among the participants who agreed to participate in the study, the sociodemographic and menstrual characteristics information form and the Visual Analogue Scale value of 5 and above on the day when the menstrual cycle is most severe were included in the study, and the McGill Pain Questionnaire-Short Form, Menstruation Attitude Scale (MBI), Functional and Emotional Dysmenorrhea Scale (FEDS) they will be asked to fill in. After the groups are formed, video home exercise programs will be delivered online (whatsApp, mail, etc.) to the participants. Individuals will be asked to apply the created video home exercise program individually in their own environment. Before the participants start their exercise programs, exercise programs will be taught by online interview. You will be asked to do the exercises for 8 weeks, 3 days a week. After the 8-week exercise program is over, the participants will be asked to fill in the McGill Pain Questionnaire- Short Form, Menstruation Attitude Scale (MBI), Functional and Emotional Dysmenorrhea Scale (FEDS) on the day when the menstrual pain is most severe. Pre- and post-intervention data were statistically analyzed and compared.
