The earlier the better! Constipation is often the root of many issues, and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. If your child is not having a bowel movement at least every other day by age 2, we may already be able to help. Bladder challenges are frequently linked to constipation, so it is all connected. We are happy to help you understand your child’s bowel and bladder function at any age after 2 to keep this system healthy and ready for toilet training. Sometimes a simple consultation is all that is necessary. We do treat all the way through age 18 and it is okay if you didn’t know you could get support before now. It is never too late to start.
If your child has a medical diagnosis with a direct link to a continence issue, such as recurrent UTI’s, genetic malformation of the bladder or bowel, spina bifida, etc. we are happy to start as soon as you are diagnosed, even in infancy. While you may not need frequent therapy as the earlier years, we can develop a strong bowel and bladder program to help your child grow.
