Title

Physical Therapy Management of Stress Urinary Incontinence in the Pediatric Population: A Case study

Files

Description

The purpose of this study was to determine if external pelvic floor examination and treatment can be an effective, non-invasive intervention for urinary incontinence in the pediatric population. The case study examines the effectiveness of exercise therapy for an 11-year-old female with pelvic floor dysfunction. This case demonstrates that pelvic floor strengthening exercises can help to resolve incontinence symptoms without the implementation of internal examination or treatment. Although commonly used to address incontinence in adults, pelvic floor physical therapy may also be an effective, non-invasive intervention option for children who are experiencing urinary incontinence.
