When your patient walks in with a huge smile 2 days after completing a leg of the Pittsburgh marathon relay...without leakage and her hip did not hold her up. In fact, she planned to walk and instead ran a 9-10minute mile because she felt capable!! Last relay leg was 3 years ago and ended with incontinence and hip pain....
Is running a marathon leg the goal for everyone? Nope...but living your day without bladder leaking, pads, and going just in case is important for everyone!#pelvichealthphysio #livelifetothefullest

Pelvic Floor Exercise

Pelvic Floor Exercise Tip of the Day:
Does your bladder tell you the truth? Often your bladder will say "quick we have to go NOW! hurry, hurry" , so you run to the loo feeling like you are bursting and when you go there is only a dribble.
This is a classic case of urgency - when the bladder makes you think you are full and need to go but in fact it is not telling the truth! Bladders have been described as unreliable witnesses when you have an overactive bladder. This means it contracts to make you feel as if you need to go now but you don't, so the bladder is not reporting the truth to you.
Bladder training can help with this - once medical causes have been ruled out.

The PUDENDAL NERVE. Did you know it controls bowel, bladder, and sexual function? And people who have an irritation of this nerve sometimes cannot sit at all without severe pain! Pudendal issues after childbirth too. Super important, but many people have never even heard of it! Have you? Most people know about the sciatic nerve, though, right!?
Many patients have pudendal neuralgia symptoms and it is NOT Pudendal neuralgia. While others are treated for years for back problems, “SI joint instability.” Vulvodynia, etc., when they actually do have an irritation of that nerve.
Did you know that patients told me over the past 19 years that neurologists have said things like, “I don’t treat or know much about the nerve” or orthopedic surgeons say things like “I treat spinal issues and lower extremity, but not at or around the pelvis.” Most urologists and gynecologists don’t get training about pelvic pain. So, it’s tough for someone with pudendal nerve symptoms or pelvic pain or pelvic floor dysfunction to get help. There is help! Keep looking. And this is why we keep teaching and sponsoring courses.
When people go to Dr. Google and search for Pudendal Neuralgia, it can look like pure doom and gloom. We are on a mission to improve information and provide hope and support. So many people are misdiagnosed and just need a better treatment plan
🔥 Pudendal. Pudenda - Latin root for SHAMEFUL.
🔥 S2, 3, 4 nerve roots. There are 3 branches of this nerve- inferior rectal, perineal, and dorsal (goes to clitoris or pen*s). Sensory, motor, autonomic
🔥 Because of the 3 different branches - symptoms can vary: painful orgasms/ejaculation, penile or clitoris pain, severe sitting pain, pain with bowel movements, rectal pain... and more.
Let’s help as many people as we can with this type of pelvic pain or dysfunction!
I teach a full course: Pudendal Neuralgia and Complex Pelvic Pain to Pelvic PTs and MDs around the world. I ❤️ it! I’m only teaching it 2 x this year in US - March in NH and August in Los Gatos, California.

Half of Women Age 50+ Experience Incontinence

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy can help While nearly half of older women experience bladder leakage, they rarely discuss it with their doctor, according to a new University of Michigan-AARP poll.

Pelvic Floor Exercise

Pelvic Floor Exercise Tip of the Day: You can't learn a correct pelvic floor contraction from a pamphlet ( it has been researched) using abdominal ultrasound isn't very useful either because there are no bony landmarks to use as reference points - in other words to see the bladder moving in relation to something fixed. All too often we see patients who have higher tone pelvic floor muscles who have been told they are weak because no bladder lift was seen on ultrasound when in fact there was no lift because the muscle was already tense and holding the bladder neck up high with no where really to go. Nor does it show a reasonable close ie some activity, but no lift so the patient can be left feeling dejected that nothing is happening when in fact there is once you examine internally.
Don't jump down my throat , I know there is a percentage of people who can't have/don't want a proper examination but be careful what you tell people when you aren't examining fully. I also know there are a large number of people getting it wrong with just verbal or abdominal cueing.
Transperineal ultrasound is far more accurate and we are now seeing research on trans- symphysis pubis which is exciting as it is less invasive than transperineal or transvaginal or an actual vaginal exam.
Whilst any input can be good input , remember you wouldn't accept a visual exam for any other condition with a let's hope it is right attitude. If you aren't sure you are activating your pelvic floor correctly , get examined properly.
