"My infant has had difficulty with regular bowel movements since about three weeks old and often seems uncomfortable. Melissa provided us with a thorough evaluation and stretched/massaged areas of tightness and tension. She also showed me how I could perform the stretches and massages at home to continually help my daughter. Since seeing Melissa, my daughter has started having more frequent bowel movements and generally seems more comfortable! I cannot recommend her enough."

Do you have Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get from parents like you!

"Everyone has told me Miralax is the only option. Is that true?"
There are a variety of supplements if your child needs them to help with gut movement and keeping poop soft. We have some more natural options that we often recommend.

"Is it invasive?"
Pediatric Pelvic Health therapy is different than post-partum. We do not perform any invasive procedures on evaluation or during treatment. We strive to make sure that you and your child are comfortable every step of the way. We do often need to look at the pelvic floor muscles and may observe your child toileting.
It is always optional.  And, it is always, always done with mutual consent from the parent and the child.  We will not do any internal exam or treatment. It never requires the child to be fully undressed and we provide covering to give them privacy.  

"How can I prepare my child for their first visit?"
Scheduling a PT visit for constipation, poop or pee leaks can feel overwhelming and scary. We know that you’ve been through a lot and walking into the unknown can add anxiety to an already tough issue.  Let us help uncover the mystery. You can tell your child your getting their body help so that they can control their pee and poop better.

When you come to see us for your first appointment there will start with lots of questions for both you and your child.  If your child is young, then there is a lot of playing while we talk.  We will look at strength, balance, coordination, how they sit on the potty and more. This is such a sensitive and vulnerable area and it is our top priority to ensure the child and parent feel safe and comfortable at all times.  

"Do I need a Doctors Referral before scheduling?"
No actually you don't. We can see you for an evaluation then we will reach out to your doctor to get a script. If you feel in your gut, that your child needs PT, make an appointment and come see us!

"How do you receive payment?"
You can pay through our secure portal by credit card, debit card, FSA or even HSA!
