Benefits of Physical Therapy for Voiding Issues

  • Physical therapy for children (infant-12 years old) and adolescents (13-18 years old) can be helpful for both urinary and bowel concerns. If potty training has been delayed or bed wetting persists a therapist can educate both the child and parents regarding strategies for improvement in bladder habits, increase core strength and promote better body mechanics for toilet training.

  • Children with developmental delays can benefit from assessment of bowel and bladder dysfunction, as they may have sensory processing impairments or require modification strategies for independent toileting.
