Paediatrics: Constipation and Stool Withholding

Constipation and stool withholding in children can be a serious concern for many families.

 

There are many reasons why a child might resist and withhold stool. Our team of experts recognise how painful, uncomfortable and distressing this can be for a child and how this distress can permeate throughout the whole family.

Symptoms often go unrecognised, as many parents can mistake their child’s cues as an attempt to have a movement rather than bowel withholding.

At OSD Healthcare, we have a host of paediatric services with both Paediatric Consultants, Child Psychologists and other therapists on hand to provide a treatment solution for your child to ensure they have a happy and healthy bowel/bladder.

 

For guidance, online resources such as www.eric.org.uk are also available for more information on child constipation.

Parents, please contact us to discuss your concerns and make an appointment 01442 331 900.
