Farshideh Alishahi, Reza Farjad, Farideh Dehghan Manshadi

The present study, conducted on three children with cerebral palsy who had voiding dysfunction. After collecting demographic information, symptoms of voiding dysfunctions were recorded. Then; we did an ultrasonographic evaluation of the bladder to measure residual urine volume. Physiotherapy treatment through percutaneous electrical stimulation of the posterior tibial nerve was performed in 12 sessions. Bladder ultrasonography was repeated after treatment. Abnormal residual urine volume became normal in patients with urinary retention. Percutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation reduces symptoms of voiding dysfunctions in children with cerebral palsy.
