Your pelvic floor physio will speak with you and your child about your child’s bladder and bowel concerns, to develop a detailed history of their symptoms. This will usually also include information about their development, diet and any allergies or intolerances. Your physio may also check your child’s tummy and give you a bladder and/or bowel diary for you to help your child complete.

Your physio will then provide practical strategies to improve your child’s bladder and bowel function.
