“Women’s Health is an area that we feel is underserved in our area”, says Kerry Breen, a Women’s Health specialist at Alliance Physical Therapy. Breen points out that, “Problems with the pelvic floor muscles are very common, and many of us, our friends, or family members may be experiencing symptoms related to pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.
In fact, one in four women are experiencing at least 1 pelvic floor muscle dysfunction.”
“You may be wondering what pelvic floor muscle dysfunction is, and how physical therapy can help. “First, it is helpful to know that pelvic floor dysfunction contributes to common problems such as urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, postpartum pain & core weakness, difficulty with bladder and bowel emptying, and/or pelvic organ prolapse.”
The goal of the workshop is to educate and give basic strategies to women with symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction in Sweetwater County.
The workshop will cover:
- Anatomy and an introduction to the most common women’s health issues
- Exercises and demonstrations for the deep core musculature, including how to activate
and relax your pelvic floor muscles.
- Learning diaphragm breathing, posture exercises, and functional movements to facilitate
proper pelvic floor and core activation in daily life activities
- Information regarding how 1 on 1 Physical Therapy can help if necessary
Breen goes on to explain, “I feel education is of utmost importance as most women think thaincontinence and or pain is simply normal and a part of life or aging. This couldn’t be further from the truth. We at Alliance feel we can have a strong impact on the daily lives of women in this area. Whether you are a postpartum athlete struggling with incontinence with jumping and running, or someone dealing with pelvic pain and issues with bladder emptying, these are a big deal.”
