Conditions Treated in Children

Treating pelvic health conditions in children is different than in adults. Your pelvic health physiotherapist will sit down and thoroughly discuss your and your child’s reason(s) for seeking treatment.

Pelvic health physiotherapy can help treat:

  • Trouble with potty training
  • Daytime urinary or fecal incontinence
  • Enuresis (night time incontinence)
  • Urinary urgency and frequency
  • Overactive bladder
  • Voiding postponement (postponing urination with holding maneuvers)
  • Bladder, urethral and/or genital pain
  • Giggle incontinence
  • Constipation and/or stool retention

What to expect

Treatment of pediatric pelvic floor issues usually consists of:

  • Education for both you and your child
  • Strategies to try at home and at school
  • Exercises focused on overall body strength and flexibility
