Constipation

Overview & Efficacy: Several comparative and controlled studies and numerous clinical studies have shown that muscle tension and pneumatic biofeedback can be highly effective for the treatment of the two most common types of urinary incontinence (physical stress and urge) as long as the muscle attachments are intact, most types of fecal incontinence (as long as the nerve paths are intact), and constipation due to malfunctioning anal muscles (as opposed to dehydration).

This therapy is rated as efficacious for males (level 4 on a scale of 1 - 5 with 5 being the best) and efficacious and specific for females (level 5 on a scale of 1 - 5 with 5 being the best).
