Pediatric pelvic floor rehabilitation is a specialty within the field of physical therapy that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor related problems in children and adolescents. The pelvic floor is a structure composed of muscles, ligaments and tissues that support the pelvic organs, such as the bladder, rectum and uterus in girls.

Some of the common conditions that may require pelvic floor rehabilitation in children are:

Urinary incontinence: involuntary loss of urine, both during the day and at night, which may be due to various factors such as muscle weakness or nerve dysfunction.

Enuresis: Also known as “nocturnal incontinence”, it refers to the inability to control urination during sleep at an age when the child is expected to be able to do so.

Encopresis: Involuntary loss of stool, usually related to chronic constipation and difficulty passing stool properly.


Pelvic floor dysfunctions related to neurological problems, such as cerebral palsy or other conditions that affect muscle control.

Chronic pelvic pain: Discomfort or pain in the pelvic region that can affect the child’s quality of life.

The goal of pediatric pelvic floor rehabilitation is to improve the function of the pelvic floor muscles and treat specific conditions that may affect children. Treatment may include specific exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, biofeedback techniques to improve awareness and control of these muscles, and other interventions customized to each child’s needs.

It is important to note that pediatric pelvic floor rehabilitation is performed by health professionals specialized in pediatric physical therapy, who have knowledge and experience in the management of these conditions in children and adolescents.
