Urinary incontinence affects ten million Americans and costs billions of dollars. Stress urinary incontinence is the most common form. The intervention of pelvic floor exercises alone, or in combination with biofeedback/behavioral training or vaginal sensors, was found to be an effective means of controlling stress incontinence. Recommendations for further research is suggested comparing combinations of therapy, relationships of fluid intake, and estrogen therapy. Special focus should be directed towards patient education of pelvic floor exercises.
