Your Partner in Children’s ContinenceAre you dealing with a child or adolescent with bladder or bowel problems and don’t know whether to seek help? We understand the sometimes embarrassing nature of continence issues. No problem is too small. Our specifically trained Physiotherapists use the latest technology and scientific research to provide a specific diagnosis and treatment plan.
Do you notice that your child is struggling with toileting? Is your school-age child:
- still wetting during the day
- still wetting the bed at night
- needing to go to the toilet many times a day
- soiling their underwear
- developing recurrent urinary tract infections?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, we may be able to help.
Most children, but not all, gain bladder and bowel control by 4 to 5 years of age. It is important that all children over 5 years, with daytime wetting or soiling issues, are seen by a Health Professional experienced with children’s continence.
The Purpose of the Mars ClinicWhy do we do what we do? With 3% of Australian school-aged children suffering from daytime bladder control and 10% suffering from bedwetting, the Mars Clinic was established to meet the significant community need for specialist treatment of children with bladder and bowel conditions.
At the Mars Clinic, we have made a serious commitment to excellence in the physiotherapy management of bladder and bowel conditions for children and adolescents.
The Mars Clinic is run by Physiotherapists experienced with children’s bladder and bowel conditions, in consultation with Doctors and Paediatric Specialists. Our purpose is to provide a specific diagnosis and treatment plan and to identify the need for further referrals or testing.
