Is your child suffering from constipation, bed-wetting or daytime accidents? How about all 3? Help is available.
10-20% of children are constipated
20% of 5-year-olds wet their bed. 10% of 7-year-olds; 5% of 10 years old and up to 3% of 18-year-olds still wet their bed!
Mandy Roscher is our Pelvic PT who treats all the kiddies that come into the practice. She is a mom herself and knows just how stressful kiddies poo and wee problems can be.
She will assess your child as a whole and help them get on a good bladder and bowel programme to “reset” their systems. Help with posture, breathing, core work and visceral massage. Children who have been constipated often have painful poos. This leads to a spasm in their pelvic floors and they need to be taught now to relax it again.
It does not involve any invasive examination and the first session is mainly talking and teaching how to do the tummy massage. At our practice we also use Real-time ultrasound (like the one the gynae uses to scan a pregnant tummy). This helps to assess the rectal diameter (to see if the rectum is stretched) and also to help retrain the pelvic floor muscles.
