Children's & adolescence  pelvic floor dysfunction

Most evidence and literature suggests that children should be continent by the age of 5. As part of my Post-graduate study at Bradford University, I researched into the literature-base surrounding children's pelvic floor dysfunction - concluding that pelvic floor physiotherapy can be effective at improving these conditions. 

Symptoms of child and adolescence  pelvic floor weakness are as follows:

  • Giggle incontinence 

  • Stress Incontinence

  • Urge Incontinence 

  • Urinary frequency 

  • Constipation 

  • Prolonged bed wetting (over the age of five)

  • Urinary leakage during the day with no identifiable cause

If you suspect someone close to you is experiencing any of the above symptoms, contact me for a discussion or to book in a consultation.
