Evidence shows that biofeedback for treating functional faecal incontinence is not effective in children and should not be used. NICE has previously recommended against the use of biofeedback to treat functional constipation; but biofeedback also demonstrates no efficacy in non-retentive functional incontinence. It is appropriate to focus resources on interventions for which there is evidence of efficacy, including other behavioural interventions and laxative use.
