Approximately 3.7 million women give birth in the United States every year. That's a lot of women whose bodies are going through tremendous physical and physiological changes. And who's helping them navigate those changes? Who's guiding them toward healing? Who's helping minimize some of the serious conditions so many will encounter down the road, if untreated? (Incontinence, low back pain and sexual dysfunction, to name a few.) One thing's for sure. Not enough of us PTs.

Pelvic Health Talk

Posted by NAIOMT on Oct 24, 2015 11:27:35 AM

Let's be honest, in this country, the pelvis isn't every PT's favorite region of the body to address, nor is it the public's favorite area to discuss openly. But it's sure one that needs more attention. That's one of the reasons we've recently introduced a new manual therapy course introducing the skills PTs need to treat pregnant women, in particular. One of the creators and instructors of that course, Susan Clinton was recently interviewed by Antony Lo and Lori Forner on The Pelvic Health Podcast. Take a listen below, and keep an eye out for courses coming up in your region!
