An Introduction for Treating the Pediatric Pelvic Floor: A Developmental Approach

Sign up today for the An Introduction for Treating the Pediatric Pelvic Floor: A Developmental Approach with Carina Siracusa, PT, DPT

November 12, 2020 8:30 - 9:30 pm EST

Pelvic health physical therapists are well versed in treating conditions of the bowel and bladder in adults. When it comes to treating children, the same approaches are not as successful due to the different nature of children’s development and physiology. This one-hour webinar will explain how development of abdominal, diaphragmatic, and pelvic floor musculature contributes to bowel and bladder difficulties in the pediatric population. It will give the participant practical developmental exercises to emphasize to help improve postural core stability which will in turn improve pediatric issues like constipation and bed wetting. Participants will also be given ideas for collaboration with pediatric physical therapist for treatment and screening.
