Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy for Children

Children have pelvic floors too!

Pelvic floor physiotherapy can be very helpful for children with daytime accidents, urinary urgency, soiling (poop accidents), constipation and bedwetting. Pelvic floor physiotherapists with additional training specifically in kid’s bladder and bowel health can treat children.

A pediatric physio appointment usually involves taking a complete history of your child’s bladder and bowel health, fluid intake and nutrition and history around their birth and development. Your physio will then give you strategies and treatment to help. Assessment and treatment for children is non-invasive, with the majority of treatment around improving toileting habits, toilet/ potty set up, routines, rewards and management of constipation.
