Active Comparator: Arm 1
Control group of patients with fecal incontinence which would be given medical therapy and exercises to perform as treatment.

Behavioral: Biofeedback Therapy for Fecal Incontinence: A Randomized Control Study
Patients who have more than one episode per week of fecal incontinence would be enrolled and randomized into either the control group (medical counseling and exercises) or study group (biofeedback therapy, medical counseling, and sphincter exercises) for seven sessions to assist with their medical problem.
- Patient Report of "Adequate Relief" From FI Symptoms With a "Yes" Answer Will be Used as Primary Outcome Variable. Data Will be Recorded at End of Treatment. A "Responder" Will be Defined as One Who Provides a "Yes" Answer. [ Time Frame: The primary outcome will be determined at the end of the study which will be 20 weeks after starting the study. ]Only reporting the results of participants who reported adequate relief.
- Change in Anorectal Physiologic Tests (Absolute Squeeze Pressure) [ Time Frame: The secondary outcome will be determined at the end of the study which will be 20 weeks after starting the study. ]Measurement of pressure changes by a colonoscope as recorded by a manometric catheter connected to a Polygraph transducer.
