Urge urinary incontinence is a debilitating chronic condition that poses challenges for affected women and the clinicians who care for them. Multicomponent behavioral therapies have shown promise in allowing women to manage their symptoms. New evidence suggests an underlying pathophysiologic inflammatory process for urge urinary incontinence, and complementary therapies that address the psychoneuroimmunology component may improve the health and quality of life for the millions of women with this condition. Yoga, a mind-body therapy, has been shown to reduce inflammation and may help improve symptoms of urge urinary incontinence. More research is necessary to demonstrate the effectiveness of yoga to reduce urge urinary incontinence symptom burden and improve quality of life.
