Pediatric Pelvic Care

Pediatric pelvic physical therapy is a specialized branch of physiotherapy that focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions related to the pelvic floor in babies and children. This essential form of therapy can help address a range of issues, from toileting difficulties to pelvic pain, setting the foundation for your child's lifelong health.

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support the bladder and bowel. In children, these muscles may not always function correctly due to developmental issues or other factors, leading to various pelvic health problems.

Understanding Pediatric Pelvic Physical Therapy

Pediatric pelvic physical therapists are professionals who have undergone specific training to understand and treat the unique aspects of a child's pelvic anatomy. They use non-invasive techniques, such as exercises and biofeedback, to improve muscle control, reduce discomfort, and help your child gain confidence in managing their bodily functions.

Benefits of Pediatric Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Pediatric pelvic physical therapy can play a significant role in managing a variety of conditions that can affect a child's comfort, confidence, and quality of life. It can help manage urinary and fecal incontinence, constipation, and bedwetting among other issues.
