About In Control Physical Therapy:
Started in 2014, In Control Physical Therapy was designed to assist families with understanding, combating and controlling issues related to urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, and dysfunctional voiding. Over the years, Dr. Fields has treated several hundreds of patients with many of them arriving at complete continence. The focus of the treatment consists of normalization of muscle, elimination systems and digestive function with home programs that focus on daily regimens, including exercise, voiding logs, diet, and water. Success is determined greatly by the motivation of the patient, as well as the patient and family ability to adhere to the recommendations, resulting in changes to the body so that it can understand how it is supposed to function. Dr. Fields works closely with family physicians, specialists and other health care professionals as well as the family and patient, in order to treat the condition comprehensively.

Kristen Fields MPT, DPT
Dr. Fields is a physical therapist who has been in practice since 1999. She is an instructor in the School of Physical Therapy at Wichita State University, teaching Integumentary Conditions and Lifespan of the Infant and child.
In 2009 she received specialized training, focused on treating children with dysfunctional voiding including urinary and fecal incontinence, from the Herman and Wallace Institute. While practicing at a local hospital, she continued to grow her knowledge and skills. She started her private practice in 2014 in response to rising community need for increased access to pediatric incontinence services. Kristen's passion for her profession and love for children has led to countless success stories resulting in happy patients and parents.
Recently, Dr. Fields has welcomed an additional physical therapist into her growing practice.
Dr. Megan Wiedenmann has been in practice since 2008. She graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise Science from Creighton University in 2005, then went on to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Kansas Medical Center. For the past ten years, she has been working in the field of inpatient trauma, seeing pediatrics as needed, resulting in a new found love of working with kids! Since then, she has been seeking continuing education courses from the Herman and Wallace Institute specifically focusing on children suffering from dysfunctional voiding and urinary/ fecal incontinence. Megan demonstrates a love of physical therapy and is now channeling it towards helping children become successful in conquering this challenging obstacle in their lives.

During this challenging time, we will still see patients in our office while taking the necessary precautions for everyone’s safety. For your safety and ours, we ask that no unnecessary visitors, such as siblings come to the facility. We are also in the process of setting up telemedicine for those at home. Updates to come.
Thank you, Kristen and Megan - In Control Physical Therapy
