  • In a prospective randomized study the efficiacy of physical therapy in female stress incontinence could be verified. The greatest success rate was achieved by medical gymnastics, whereas the perineal electrical stimulation should be used as supporting measure like a biofeedback mechanism because of its low effective intensity. Despite of the good therapeutic success (51.5%) with lasting effects no objective criteria to the use of physical therapy in female stress incontinence were found.
