Does your child experience bed wetting or day time wetting? Both of these problems tend to get better with age but children do not necessarily grow out of it. About 1 to 3 percent of children also experience faecal soiling which can be very distressing and can be managed.
If your child is experiencing any continence concerns come in today to see on of our qualified continence physiotherapists for a consultation.
It is important that our children adopt healthy bladder and bowel habits right from the beginning. Research shows that bladder and bowel problems can have a negative impact on a child’s self-esteem and quality of life. A child’s perception of their school toilets and access to them can impact on a child’s health and wellbeing, which can also impact on a child’s ability to learn. Check out the Continence Foundations Toilet Tactics Kit. This program is seeking to motivate children to adopt healthy bladder and bowel habits by empowering them through education and knowledge. It is built on the premise that many lifelong attitudes, beliefs and behaviours begin in childhood and that instilling these values at a young age may help avoid issues later in life. If your child is experiencing any concerns with bladder or bowel control book an appointment today to see one of our qualified paediatric continence physiotherapist for full assessment and management of your childs problem.
