Urinary incontinence in children is an underdiagnosed symptom in India with a prevalence of 7%. An appropriate diagnosis and early intervention can help prevent the progression of the disorder. Here we present a case reportof an 8-year-old girl referred for physiotherapy with the chief complaint of urinary incontinence. She had a wide bladder neck along with leaking urine and a small bladder capacity. She was managed conservatively with medications and comprehensive physiotherapeutic assessment and management that included a combination of electrotherapy, pelvic floor training, balance and postural exercises and other interventions that gave a positive outcome in terms of eliminating the dribbling episodes and improvement in her quality of life.
Keywords: Pelvic floor training, Physiotherapy, Urinary incontinence.
