I've been diagnosed with urinary incontinence, is biofeedback an effective treatment option?

I've had bladder control problems for some time, but only recently was it diagnosed as urinary incontinence. My doctor suggested biofeedback, however I know nothing about this treatment and whether it is an appropriate option.

Yes, for mild to moderate stress incontinence or urge incontinence it can improve symptoms. For urge incontinence, it is often used as an adjunct with medicine.
