Abstract: 

Background and Objective: Urinary stress incontinence has been defined as any involuntary leakage of urine on effort or exertion or on sneezing or coughing. Physical treatment and rehabilitation have an important role in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.
Subjects and Methods: In this clinical trial study, forty five women with urinary stress incontinence were included. Diagnosis was made according to the detailed history, physical examinations and urinary tests. All cases were randomly divided into three groups. Fifteen cases underwent kegel exercises, fifteen other cases underwent interferential current and both treatment (kegel exercise and interferential current) were applied the remaining cases. Number of leakages in three days and amount of leakage were evaluated pre and post treatment and the values of these data were compared in each group and among groups.
Results: All of the parameters improved after treatment in each group (p<0.05). Kegel exercise and interferential current seemed to have similar effects on the number of leakages in three days before and after test. Treatment with kegel exercise and interferential current together was more effective on decreasing the number of leakages in three days than each one alone (p<0.05).
Conclusions: Physical therapy modalities used in this trial are easy and non invasive. Treatment with kegel exercise and interferential current together can be more effective in patients with urinary stress incontinence.
