Pediatric Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Problems
Incontinence or leakage (urinary or fecal) in children may occur when the pelvic floor muscles are not working together with the rest of the trunk and "core" muscles. The signals with bladder and/or bowel and the normal emptying reflexes become disrupted(or "mixed-up") which can lead to a persistent pattern of emptying or lack of sensation of fullness and incomplete emptying. 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. It is important to remember that leakage and pelvic floor problems are not your child's fault, nor yours, and there should not be any shame! You may have been told that your child will "outgrow" daytime leakage and bedwetting, it is because of "deep sleeping", or that they are simply acting out. The research tells us that this is not the case. If you are searching for answers, please contact us. We will work with your child, you and your physician to asssit your child!
Pelvic Floor problems in children and teens that we help with:
- Bedwetting and Daytime Leaking
- Incomplete Emptying
- Giggle Incontinence
- Pelvic Pain
- Encopresis and Constipation
- Incontinence with Sports
There is help through Physical Therapy and specialized retraining, and Rebecca treats and works with children. Please contact her at email@example.com or call 412-259-5342 to discuss your concerns and the next steps towards full continence for your child.
At Embody PT, Rebecca and Susan have the unique ability to share movement and strength knowledge and techniques in one to one physical therapy treatments or in a class setting.
Classes may assist you as you:
- Begin a daily movement or exercise practice.
- Strengthen and improve an existing practice, or modify it after injury, illness or surgery.
- Follow through while attending or after completing PT.
- Address Bone Health and joint concerns and problems.
We utilize many forms of movement techniques and knowledge including:
- Total Control Fitness®
- Medical Therapeutic Yoga
- Franklin Movement Method®
- Bones for Life®
If you are unsure if you should first work with us on an individual basis to address specific problems or attend a class, please contact us to discuss your concerns. If you would like to develop a yoga or exercise practice, but do not want to do so in a class, please contact us about individual yoga and exercise sessions to meet your needs.
Medical Therapeutic Yoga(MTY) is a form of integrated and functional medicine delivered by a medical professional who has recieved advanced certification in Medical Therapeutc Yoga. It provides a new model for fitness and rehabilitation that helps you address health and wellness in a simpler and more holistic way. MTY benefits everyone, whether you are a patient with pain, joint/spine problems, pelvic floor concerns, or other health concerns, or are seeking a prevention-driven and holistic health and wellness program. Medical Therapeutic Yoga also utilizes Ayurvedic practice to help your address and balance your needs in a true mind-body way. Utilizing your history and our evaluation, we are able to use MTY as a tool to treat and to help you meet your goals for improved physical health and wellness. The focus is on YOU, your health needs, and your goals--not on your medical diagnosis. Click here for more information.
