Types of Treatment
Pediatric Incontinence & Bowel Dysfunction Physical Therapy Louisville, Evansville & Southern Indiana
We offer pelvic floor physical therapy to the pediatric population with diagnoses ranging from encopresis, enuresis, pain, or constipation.
Physical therapy can be effective in helping a child gain control of a group of muscles and soft tissues called the pelvic floor, which supports the pelvic organs and helps control bowel and bladder function.
With therapists that are uniquely qualified to assess and treat kids, our pediatric pelvic health specialists will assess the child's overall core strength and functional mobility. Our therapists are trained in using a technique called external biofeedback to evaluate pelvic floor muscle control. This is done with either a mirror or computer program as the child engages the pelvic floor muscles.

Thank you so much! I love you guys and the care I received!
After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.
Wonderful staff, very helpful, competent and professional. They listen to what I say and are working with me to meet my goal.
Amazing service. They have gone out of their way to call and follow up with me while doing my at-home exercises. Highly recommend.
