Pediatric Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Problems

Incontinence or leakage (urinary or fecal) in children occurs when the pelvic floor muscles are not working together with the bladder and/or bowel and with the rest of the trunk or canister system.  The normal emptying reflexes can be disrupted(or "mixed-up") and this can lead to a persistent pattern of  emptying or lack of sensation of fulllness in the bladder and/or the bowel system. Some children experience difficulty urinating or controlling their bladder function, frequent bladder infections, constipation, not urinating enough during the day, or sensing bladder fullness.  Leakage during the day or the night can be embarrassing for your child, and might cause them to limit friendships and activities or to be stressed when in social settings and school. If your child has experienced any of the above symptoms, they may have been seen by a physician or specialist and been diagnosed with bedwetting, encopresis, or other diagnoses.  They may recommend therapy to retrain the pelvic floor muscles and the trunk/core, but sometimes the physicians are unaware of the advantages of Pediatric Pelvic Floor retraining. If that is the case, and you have questions and concerns, please contact us.  It is important to remember that leakage, encopresis and constipation,  and pelvic floor problems are not your child's fault, nor yours, and there should not be any shame! There is help through Physical Therapy, and Rebecca treats and works with children. Please contact her at rebecca@embody-pt.com to discuss your concerns and the next steps towards full continence for your child.

 Programs and Care for Moms-To-Be and New Moms

Post-Partum Evaluation & TreatmentPregnancy and Childbirth bring about many changes in the body, including soft tissue lengthening, strength and coordination changes, and postural alignment challenges. All women benefit from guidance and help  during pregnancy and after delivery as they learn to re-connect with their bodies after giving birth. Some of the things that we evaluate and treat during pregnancy and after birth:

  • Pelvic Ring Pain (pubic symphysis, SI, and "sciatica")
  • Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA)
  • Painful episiotomy scar or C-section scar
  • Urinary incontinence 
  • Back, neck, and joint pain
  • Painful intercourse

Preparing to give birth takes 40 weeks; as your body recovers from this journey, we can help you regain strength and resume exercises and activites.
