Kid’s Continence

From bedwetting and constipation to faecal incontinence and pain when using the toilet, children can experience a range of distressing and uncomfortable symptoms related to continence. At Sydney Pelvic Clinic, we provide a specialised Kid’s Continence service led by our Paediatric Pelvic Physiotherapists Kathy Jennings APAM & Bronwyn Scahill APAM. We can help your child or teenager break free of continence issues to regain their health and confidence.

Our experienced pelvic Physiotherapists will listen to you and your child, do a thorough assessment, provide education and understanding of the problem as well as give you a treatment plan to address your family’s concerns. As part of our multidisciplinary approach we may refer your child to specialists if there is a need for further assessment or investigation.
