LAP Lambert Academic Publishing Studies on recovery of abdominal muscles function in women with birth experience have been questioned despite the availablity and prescriptions of different types of postnatal abdominal exercises. The effect on abdominal muscles’ endurance of the developmental changes resulting from puberty, pregnancy, parity and menopause that women undergo are still not well investigated. A better understanding of women’s abdominal muscles’ performances after childbirth may lead to better utilization of physical therapy in treating related dysfunctions associated with pregnancy and parity. This book presents the assessment and correlates of abdominal muscles’ endurance of nulliparous and parous women.
