PODCAST: OT and Pediatric Constipation

1st April, 2024

I’ve been surprised as my own kids enter elementary school to anecdotally find that constipation is a common reason to miss activities.
But, this aligns perfectly with the research we look at today, and the growing concern that constipation has become a public health concern.
As many as 32% of kids (0-18) experience constipation. And, a growing number of occupational therapy professionals are seeing these kids on their caseload. Today we’ll look at an article that examines what an interdisciplinary approach to pediatric constipation can look like.
Then, we are excited to welcome to the podcast, Quiara Smith, an OT who owns a pediatric pelvic health practice. Her and I will discuss the practical implications from this article for your OT practice.
