Physical therapy compared to pharmaceuticals for the treatment of female urinary incontinence

23 May 2009

Abstract

Treatment for female urinary incontinence involving physical therapy demonstrated the greatest improvements in quality of life, while pharmaceutical interventions had the greatest effect in reducing incontinence episode frequency. Due to the correlation found between improvements in quality of life and reduction in incontinence episode frequency, it is recommended that interventions for female urinary incontinence include a combination of physical therapy and pharmaceuticals to achieve optimal patient results.
