Clinical Trial Summary

The study was conducted to determine the effect of visceral manipulation on menstrual irregularities and hormonal profile in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Thirty women were randomly and equally assigned into the group (A) (Control group), who received a low caloric diet (1200 Kcal/day) only for 3 months, and the group (B) (Study group), who received visceral manipulation to the pelvic organs and the related structures in addition to the same low-calorie diet as the group (A). Evaluations pre and post-study were done for body weight, BMI, female reproductive hormones, and menstruation-related problems.


Clinical Trial Description

The current study was conducted to determine the effect of visceral manipulation on menstrual irregularities and hormonal profile in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Thirty women having PCOS were chosen from the outpatient clinic of the faculty of physical therapy, Cairo University. Patients were randomly assigned into two groups equal in number. Group (A) (Control group), 15 PCOS women received a low caloric diet (1200 Kcal/day) for 3 months, while group (B) (Study group), 15 PCOS women received visceral manipulation to the pelvic organs and the related structures (8 sessions, once per week in the first month then once every other week for two months) in addition to the same low-calorie diet as the group (A). Evaluations pre and post-study for body weight, body mass index, female reproductive hormones [luteinizinghormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and LH/FSH ratio] and menstruation-related problems were done by weight- height scale, blood analysis, and menstruation-specific domain of polycystic ovary syndrome health-related quality of life questionnaire (PCOSQ), respectively. ;
