Answer

Answer

Behavioral management techniques include timed voiding, Valsalva and Credé maneuvers, and pelvic floor exercises. Urinary collection devices, intermittent catheterization, and protective garments are used to manage the collection and disposal of urine. [37] The Fourth International Consultation on Incontinence Recommendations published in 2009 outline the most recent guidelines for the management of urinary incontinence and specialized management of neurogenic urinary incontinence, including pharmacological and surgical interventions.
