Bedwetting and daytime accidents are a normal part of childhood, but if your older child (six plus) is still wetting the bed, they could be experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction.

Paediatric incontinence — the loss of bladder or bowel control — happens when the pelvic floor muscles aren’t working effectively with the bowel and bladder muscles to allow for typical peeing and pooping.

Parents often don’t know what to do or how to help their child but… WE DO!

Paediatric Pelvic Physiotherapy treatment can help. CYP’s physio Megan and physio Shannon are specially trained to support KIDS with their pelvic health and they’re ready to help.

We know this is stressful for families, but life gets better for everyone when these issues are addressed.

Did you know kids could experience pelvic floor dysfunction?

Happy Occupational Therapy Month!

For OT month we are celebrating by giving you information on our OT’s favourite body system…..the sensory system!

Did you know we all have a sensory system?

Sensory processing is how our body takes in information from the world around us, make sense of it, and responds to it. This information is anything you can hear, see, smell, touch, or taste around you!

We become dysregulated when we are overwhelmed or have a hard time understanding the everything happening around us! Signs of dysregulation include – big emotions/meltdowns, hard time controlling behaviours, hard time making decisions, lots of emotions, and avoidance of tasks.

Regardless of who you are, we all have a ‘sensory profile’ – which is how we react to things happening around us, and what we need to help regulate, stay calm and make it through the day.

A common phrase in OT sessions is “Everyone has a Sensory Profile!”

To help spread awareness of sensory processing, normalizing finding time to listen to our bodies, and take care of ourselves, we collaborated with to create a design to share with families!

Meet F! He graduated for Physio this month.

F is not only adorable, he is also a superstar. He started physio at 6 months old with a gross motor delay.

Albertans are so lucky to have so many Rocky Mountain adventures right at our doorstep. Hiking and mountain biking are activities that many families enjoy, but no matter how careful we are rocky trails and uneven terrain can often lead to falls and unwanted injuries.

If pain from injury persists, don’t hesitate to seek help. Physiotherapy does not require a referral, so the sooner you come in, the sooner we can create an appropriate treatment plan that’ll get your family back on the trails and exploring our beautiful country! ⛰️🚵🏼‍♀️🥾

We have two Physio graduates to spotlight today!

Photo #1: This sweet babe is 5 months old and she had her first Physio appointment at 5 weeks old. She had tightness in her neck with a preference to looking only one way. And now there is no tightness or preference to be found. Way to go!

Photo # 2: “A” started physio in March to work on strengthening her ankles. She has been doing a lot of fun games to challenge her lower body strength. This week she graduated after 5 visits and lots of hard work in between! What a superstar!

Congratulations to these two, along with so many other kiddos who accomplished so many amazing things this month!

Soccer season! ⚽️⚽️⚽️
Games, practices, and mobs of little children running haphazardly around the pitch is a nightly community ritual these days. As a result, we’re seeing lots of rolled ankles, knee pain, shin pain and other issues in our footballers.

If your soccer player has experienced an injury or has expressed areas of pain, let us help them get back on the field asap!

March 8th. International Women’s Day.

A day to remind us that progress doesn’t happen by accident. The success that many women celebrate today did not come easily…but is possible.

Together we can continue to move the pendulum on women’s rights and equality.

🎁 People are the greatest gift! 🎁

12 days of Holiday CHEER, celebrating the wonderful PEOPLE that bring us JOY throughout the year!

DAY 8 : Meet the Team! It takes an incredible team of passionate therapists and dedicated admin support to run the CYP clinics. We are truly grateful for our wonderful staff, we wouldn’t be here without you. Merry Christmas to you and your families! 🎄❤️🎅🏼🧑🏽‍🎄🎁
************************************

This year, when we we’re thinking about how to celebrate Christmas, we decided that there was nothing more important than the people who keep our clinics thriving and growing. This is a small sampling of our amazing community, but know we value every child, family, team member and vendor that walk through our doors.

We’ve shared the address to our ‘coming soon’ new south clinic. BUT, you may be wondering where #5112, 7005 Fairmount Drive SE is exactly?

Well it’s a short drive from our current Kingsland location. 8-10 minutes by car, whether you access Fairmount Drive from Heritage Dr or Glenmore Trail (as shown on the map in slide 2).

🚨Once you arrive to the Fairmore Business Park, it is important to know that there are three buildings that share the large parking lot. CYP will be located in building 5000, which is at the most northern part of the lot (as shown in slide 1).

Best thing… once you arrive there is lots of parking and it’s totally accessible. No more elevators or stairs. Woot woot!!😀😀

Today is World Arthritis Day

Typically, we think of arthritis affecting older individuals, however arthritis can impact children, teenagers and young adults too.

It is estimated 1/1000 kids will develop some type of chronic arthritis.

In children younger than 16yo it is called Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

Symptoms can include:
▪️Painful, red, warm swollen joints
▪️Joint stiffness
▪️Overall fatigue
▪️Appetite loss
▪️Fever
▪️Rash
▪️Inflammation in the eye

It can affect one or multiple areas in the body.

It can make it difficult to:
🏃‍♀️Walk, Run and Jump
🛏️Get out of bed in the morning
🎨Do fine motor play
🍕Chew food
👚Get dressed
👀See clearly
🛝Be a kid

Early diagnosis is important to stop inflammation, reduce pain and stiffness, keep their little joints moving, and protect their bodies from long term difficulties.

This year we are THANKFUL for some big changes on the horizon! We’re also VERY EXCITED to tell you about them. Make sure...

Foot and ankle tightness and pain can be incredibly common over the summer months.

Why? We spend more time moving our bodies, more time in sandals or unsupportive footwear and more time being on uneven surfaces. 🩴🩴Combined with growth spurts, muscle weakness and muscle tightness, all of these things can contribute to foot and ankle tightness and pain.
