Constipation is very common. It affects about 1 in 3 children and is a cause of discomfort for children. If not managed appropriately, it has the potential to lead to more challenging symptoms including painful defecation, bleeding, abdominal pain and soiling. Symptoms that may have a devastating impact on the child’s confidence and education.
Here at Moor Park Paediatric Practice, we will work with you and your child in the comfort of your own home , at school or in hospital and with a range of children specialists to help resolve this condition.
