Physical Therapy Focus: Kids & Constipation by Gail Fennimore

Monday, Oct 24, 2016 by Child & Family Development

 

October is National Physical Therapy Month and we are celebrating with the APTA #choosePT

Each physical therapist on our staff of 6 will share bit of expertise, including Gail Fennimore MPT PCS C/NDT!

Gail is one of the most experienced and tenured physical therapists at Child and Family Development. In addition to her pediatric clinical specialist (PCS) certification, Gail has specialized training in pelvic floor dysfunction training and offers evaluation and treatment for related conditions. There are specific treatment protocols for children with urinary and fecal incontinence with conditions including:

•   Daytime wetting

•   Urinary frequency

•   Withholding urine

•   Constipation

•   Nighttime wetting

•   Urinary urgency

•   Incomplete emptying

•   Fecal incontinence

Recently, Gail read an article about constipation and the benefits of physical therapy. 

It states that recent research shows that many children with constipation may have an easier time going to the bathroom when potty training is paired with exercises to improve posture and strengthen pelvic muscles.

Researchers focused on 53 school-age kids with what's known as functional constipation, a common childhood problem that can be caused by psychological or neurological issues. This type of constipation isn't due to physical or hormonal issues that make bowel movements difficult.  Children with functional constipation may have weak pelvic floor muscles from poor posture or sitting in an awkward, unstable position on an adult-size toilet seat. The pelvic floor muscles work closely with the diaphragm, lower back muscles and abdominal muscles to support the spine and stabilize the digestive system. When the pelvic muscles don't work optimally, kids can struggle to control bowel movements. 

Kids receiving physical therapy practiced proper posture on the toilet and did exercises to teach awareness of sensations that indicate a need to defecate and effective muscle contracting and relaxing for easier bowel movements.

Physical therapist, Gail Fennimore looks into "text neck" troubles

Tuesday, Oct 4, 2016 by Child & Family Development

Gail Fennimore PT PCS C/NDT is one of the most experienced and tenured physical therapists at Child and Family Development and works at our Midtown office.  

Gail has a reputation for reading professional journals regularly, but found an interesting article in The Costco Connection recently that grabbed her attention almost as much.

The article about "text neck" troubles explains how our society is adopting more awkward postures and "turtling in" as screens get smaller and smaller, resulting over time in loss of normal spine curvature.  The outcomes can include neck and shoulder pain, headaches, premature disk degeneration, arthritis, bone remodeling and a hunched back. 

Tips to prevent text neck include:

  • practice perfect posture
  • vary postures, set limits and take breaks
  • bring devices to eye level
  • use talk-to-text feature and use Siri
  • strengthen neck muscles

Results from one recent research study revealed that physical therapy care can reduce pain, improved range of motion and correct spine curvature.  Our team of 6 are trained in anatomy, pain management and strengthening activities.

National Physical Therapy Month #choosePT

Friday, Sep 30, 2016 by Child & Family Development

 

October is National Physical Therapy Month and we are celebrating with the APTA #choosePT

Pediatric physical therapy is not just rehabilitation of injuries or therapy for “little adults”. While it certainly includes rehabilitation from sports injuries, post-surgery, broken bones and other conditions, it more commonly addresses “habilitation” rather than “re-habilitation”. That is, we are working with children to develop gross motor skills for the first time, rather than regain skills after a loss.  This “habilitation” often occurs when there is a gross motor delay related to late crawling and late walking.  At times, a delay is present in conjunction with a medical diagnosis, such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, mitochondrial disorder and spina bifida, to name just a few.

exceptional minds article about moviemaking and autism

Friday, Mar 18, 2016 by Child & Family Development

The Child and Family Development team is excited about our upcoming conference, Autism Spectrum Disorder Conference: A Multidisciplinary Review of Current Research and Interventions

We love reading stories of success about people with autism spectrum disorder.  Parade Magazine recently published this story about accomplishments in the movie making, including visual effects, post-production and editing.  Click here for the full article.  

The interviews got one of our most tenured physical therapists, Gail Fennimore PT PCS C/NDT, to thinking about how important early intervention and family support over a lifespan are and what an impact this foundation can have on a person's life. Charlotte has many wonderful services and supports for people and families facing an autism diagnosis.

Don't Take Our Word For It! Physical therapy for pelvic floor and core improvements.

Thursday, Feb 4, 2016 by Child & Family Development

Gail Fennimore, PT PCS is one of the most experienced and tenured physical therapists at Child  and Family Development.  In addition to her pediatric clinical specialist (PCS) certification, Gail has specialized training in pelvic floor dysfunction training and offers evaluations and treatment for related conditions.      

Recently, one mother expressed how these services benefited her child. She shares... 

When my daughter was 5 years old, she was diagnosed with Tethered Cord Syndrome and had surgery on her spinal cord to relieve pressure on the nerves going to her bladder and causing constant incontinence.  The surgery was successful, however, over the next year she had lasting problems from what we assumed was nerve damage.  The only diagnosis the urologist could give for the remaining incontinence was Overactive Bladder Syndrome and we put her on medication for that.  However, the medicine did not help.  In fact, it made the symptoms worse so we had to take her off of it.  The more I learned about Overactive Bladder Syndrome I did not feel that this was the correct diagnoses for my daughters remaining symptoms.  

After realizing the neurosurgeon and urologist had done all they could do medically, we started searching for other answers and are so blessed to have found Gail Fennimore.  She has helped us realize that the lasting incontinence is largely caused by my daughter not having been able to develop proper use of her pelvic floor and surrounding core muscles for years leading up to the spinal cord surgery. Through physical therapy with Gail, we have seen significant improvement in my daughter's ability to recognize and control her bladder functions.  She has also worked on her core strength, which we didn't even know had also been impacted due to the tethered cord. 

We are very thankful for the services and wealth of knowledge Gail Fennimore has provided, not only to my daughter, but to our entire family!

Backpack safety tips from a physical therapist

Monday, Aug 24, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Gail Fennimore LPT, PCS, physical therapist at Child and Family Development, shares these suggestions on backpack safety on the first day of school for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.  

She says one of the aspects of being a physical therapist that she likes best is the opportunity to intertwine prevention, safety and wellness into her practice.  This is particularly important when working with children.  They have a very long life ahead of them, and it is important to treat our bodies right from the start.  One area every school age child and their parents need to pay attention to is their backpack.

Choosing the "perfect" backpack is one of the most important decisions in getting ready for school.  Of course, some of the key elements are color, logo, pockets for Ipad, and shape .  In the past few years whether to have or not have wheels has been added to the list.  But, how many times do parents consider the size of the pack in relation to their child's size?  Here are some research-based suggestions:  

What are the best features for a backpack?

  • 2 wide padded shoulder straps
  • padded back
  • waist strap 
  • lightweight material 
  • multiple compartments to organize
How do you wear a backpack correctly and safely?
  • place both straps on shoulders and pull snug
  • fasten the waist strap 
  • pack should sit 2" above the child's waist 
  • pack heaviest books closest to the back 
  • wear the pack don't carry it 
  • the pack should weigh only 10-15% of your child's weight 
  • pick the pack up with two hands and place on a table to put on the floor
Tips for safely using a backpack:
  • pick the correct size pack
  • do not over load the pack  
  • pack heaviest items close to the body  
  • put on & take off the pack with two hands and preferably where it can be sat on a counter or table
  • always place your pack out of the aisle  
  • never fling a pack
What are the most common injuries to children from backpacks?
Most parents and professionals might guess that back injuries are the most common injuries to children from backpacks, but that is not so.  The most common injury is to the head and face of a child from either tripping over packs (many parents may relate to this from the number of times they have tripped on their children's packs) or being hit by packs.  There is a significant amount of back pain among children and adolescents, but it cannot be clearly associated with backpack wearing.  The next most common injury is to the shoulder.  In fact the weakest link in managing the load carried by a backpack is the shoulder.

Gail's latest pick is from Dakine that offer backpacks with waist straps and a discount on the first purchase! 

Have a fun and safe back-to-school time!

Physical Therapy for kids

Tuesday, Feb 10, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Parents should be actively involved in their child's physical therapy sessions.  Our team of 6 PTs has these ideas to make most out of pediatric therapy sessions:

  • Tell your physical therapist about significant events in your child’s medical history, even if you feel that it doesn’t pertain to this particular appointment.  For example, is there a history of seizures?  It may not seem important but it will give us information that can help to guide things that we may or may not do during treatment.
  • Let your therapist know what other specialists are involved in your child’s care.  Do they receive therapy at school?  Do they go to any special doctors?  Oftentimes we like to collaborate with other healthcare professionals in the area to ensure the best care.
  • Ask questions.  We like to hear things like “what is this obstacle course helping my child work on?” or “what are you looking for when you are working on this activity?”  Sometimes we can get a little wrapped up in what we are working on but are always more than willing to talk about what we are doing and why we are doing it.
  • Let us know if something new is going on in your child’s home life.  Sometimes we may see behaviors that are different because of something changing in school or home, and we don’t know why.  Things like home changes or even medication changes can be channeled into different behaviors.
  • Do your best to follow through on your therapist’s recommendations.  Between all of the therapists and all of the families that come to see us on a weekly basis, Child and Family Development is a great resource for contacts in the community for things that your child may benefit from.  Also, therapy is designed to be carried over at home.  You will truly see the benefits of therapy much quicker if you are able to carry over some of the work at home.  It’s all about practice, practice, practice!
  • Have fun with it!  We try our best to find ways to motivate each child in their own way.  We work hard during therapy but like to have fun while we are doing it.  If you are able to keep the same fun environment when doing therapy work at home, you will see good results!

Prematurity and its impact on the school years

Friday, Jan 2, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Consequences of a child's premature birth can follow them into the school years

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY AND PHYSICAL THERAPY

These children may be described as clumsy or uncoordinated. They may have difficulty acquiring complex motor skills such as skipping, hopping or doing jumping jacks, as well as poor physical endurance when compared to peers. 

SPEECH AND LANGUAGE

In addition, these children may have difficulty following directions in the classroom, remembering assignments or learning to read. 

EDUCATION AND ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Research indicates children born three months prematurely are 3-4 times more likely to struggle in school than full-term peers and can have learning disabilities that persist through the teenage years.  

CHILD PSYCHOLOGY

One study found that premature children had higher levels of anxiety, depression, aggression and lower self concepts than full-term peers. 

The multi-disciplinary team of pediatric therapists at Child and Family Development in Charlotte offers an array of services for children from infancy into young adulthood.

Prematurity and its impact on the preschool years

Monday, Dec 29, 2014 by Child & Family Development

Consequences of a child's premature birth can follow them into the preschool years. Skill development remains important.    

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY AND PHYSICAL THERAPY

Mild delays in gross motor skills make it difficult for children to keep up with peers as academic and physical demands increase.  These children may demonstrate poor safety awareness during motor activities, appear clumsy with frequent falls and display immature running, jumping, and balance skills.

SPEECH AND LANGUAGE AND SOCIAL SKILLS

kids may get behind in age-appropriate social skills, speech intelligibility or vocabulary organization and understanding of contingent behavior, i.e. consequences.
