Abstract

Objective: To verify the prevalence of SUI symptoms in practitioners of high intensity physical activities, such as CrossFit, and to analyze the correlation of the high frequency of this activity with urinary losses, in a CrossFit gym in Greater Florianópolis - SC. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study in which the sample was composed of women who had practiced the CrossFit modality for over a month and over 18 years of age. A questionnaire was applied to assess the data regarding personal characteristics, reproductive life, training frequency and Crossfit time, perceptions about urine loss and evaluation by the Pad-test. Results: The final sample was 34 women, the average age of the participants was 30.3 ± 6.43 years. Among them, 76.4% were nulliparous, 61.7% had been practicing the sport for at least 8 months, 14% reported perceiving urine loss on a daily basis and 88.2% had stress urinary incontinence characterized as mild to moderate. A correlation of greater urinary loss was found the greater the frequency of weekly training Conclusion: Most of the women participating presented urine loss on exertion, classified as mild to moderate. Demonstrating that high intensity activities, such as Crossfit, and their weekly frequency can directly influence stress urinary incontinence. There is a need for further research with a larger sample, greater homogeneity of training and individualization in the evaluation.
