Pediatric Pelvic Health

Overview

Oaklawn is committed to providing quality care for your children. From pediatrician services to speech therapy, we offer a variety of specialty areas to help you and your child live life to the very best.

Pediatric pelvic health (urotherapy) is an emerging field of noninvasive treatment for many pelvic health disorders including, but not limited to: constipation, abdominal and pelvic pain, incontinence and bed-wetting.

What We Do

We have a comprehensive team of pelvic health therapists that are ready to help you and your child meet their goals, whether it’s reducing belly pain, eliminating bed wetting, or becoming more regular. Our urotherapy team will work closely with you and your child to discuss a treatment plan that works well for your family. If you feel your child needs help in other areas including behavioral health, speech delay, or coordination needs, we have help for that that too!

Control Constipation

If your child has painful bowel movements, less than three bowel movements per week, leaking stool, or abdominal pain, they may be constipated. The good news is there is effective treatment for this. We work closely with your primary care provider to find an effective treatment plan to help your child’s body “go” when they need to, while eliminating pain and embarrassment that may be associated with these conditions.

Bed-Wetting

Wetting the bed beyond age 7 may be an indication that your child’s body needs a little extra help. Bed-wetting happens in 10-15% of children past age 6. Our physical therapy can help your child work towards staying dry during the day and night.

End Pelvic Pain

Many children suffer from abdominal and pelvic pain. The reasons behind this can be numerous, including scar tissue, constipation, and even anxiety. Our pelvic health physical therapists can work closely with your child and their specialists to determine the cause of pain, as well as develop a treatment plan to help stop pain that may limit your child’s life.

Care Tailored To Your Child

We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to healing. We have a full team of physical, occupational and speech therapists who have training and experience to work with children with a variety of needs, including autism, developmental delay, and neurological/genetic conditions. All of these diagnoses can affect your child’s pelvic health, including increasing constipation risk and contributing to daytime or nighttime incontinence. Together, we can help meet the needs and goals of your family.
