Pediatric Pelvic Floor Program
Treatment for Pediatric Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Incontinence, Nighttime Wetting and Constipation
Many children struggle past the age of 4-5 years, with increased urgency, holding, frequent urinary tract infections, daytime accidents, bed wetting and constipation. The social and emotional impact of persistent incontinence/pelvic floor dysfunction as well as the increased risk of other medical problems is seen when left untreated.
KatieBug is excited to offer a Pelvic Floor program specifically for the Pediatric population. This program is carried out by a physical therapist who has completed specialized training in pediatric pelvic floor dysfunction. The PT evaluates the child using kid-friendly biofeedback software along with assessing the patient’s current bowel/bladder habits and diet.
Children are taught about their bowel and bladder health, as well as activating and coordinating their pelvic floor muscles. Research has found biofeedback training to be an effective treatment with children with incontinence.
Our goal is to assist with dryer days and a healthier urinary and gastrointestinal system. We have great outcomes!
Our comprehensive treatment approach uses animated biofeedback (SEMG – surface electromyography – noninvasive) along with these other treatments:
- Pelvic Floor Education
- Bladder Health and Bladder Retraining
- Posture and Breathing Techniques
- Toileting Instruction
- Bladder Log/Diary
- Voiding Schedules
- Diet/Water and Fiber Intake and Monitoring
