Behavioral therapy: practical approach to urinary incontinence.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Behavioral treatments for incontinence improve bladder control by altering the patient's actions or environment. In most of these procedures, the patient learns new skills and strategies to prevent the accidental loss of urine. Pelvic muscle training and exercise, biofeedback, bladder training, behavioral strategies for coping with urgency, and prompted voiding are the most common of these treatments. This article describes how to apply them.
