Continence and Pelvic Health
Pelvic floor muscles play an important role in a child’s development and impact their bowel and bladder control as well as their postural control. Pelvic floor muscle dysfunction can contribute to struggles with bed wetting, constipation, fecal incontinence, daytime or nighttime frequency/ urgency, or urinary retention.
At The Mayer Center we create individualized treatment plans for children that may include:
• Behavior and diet strategies to improve your child’s bathroom habits
• Bladder retraining practices
• Core strengthening
• Patient and family education
• Pelvic floor muscle re-education
• Posture training
Why The Mayer Center?
At The Mayer Center, a specially trained physical therapist can work with your child and your family to understand your child’s specific symptoms. A thorough evaluation may include an assessment of your child’s core muscle strength, coordination, and muscle tone using both physical examination and biofeedback assessment strategies. We will also assess your child’s voiding patterns, hydration, and nutrition habits.
