🤔Have you ever pulled into the driveway after a long day and suddenly had the urge to urinate? Like 5-Alarm Bell, clear the driveway sprinting to the bathroom to make it in time? You are not alone! You might have even heard of this term before, Latchkey incontinence. This is a type of urge incontinence that often occurs with specific triggers like: 💦 opening the door to your home 💦 hearing the sound of water running 💦 stepping into the shower 💦 the sound of rain It is often called “overactive bladder” as it is a sudden, strong urge to urinate that is difficult to control followed by involuntary loss of urine. We understand how frustrating this can be to live with. Thankfully there is a solution 👉🏽Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy!

What’s causing your pelvic pain?
⚡️Sometimes it can be tricky to figure out what is involved in the pain you are experiencing. 🙃 . 🧐I’ve seen patients for second (and third, fourth and fifth) opinions when they were dealing with what they thought were: ➡️ sciatica ➡️ low back dysfunction ➡️ hamstring tendinitis ➡️ piriformis syndrome ➡️ prostate infections ➡️ urinary tract infections ➡️ hip arthritis ➡️ and so many more things… . And ultimately, guess who we found out was a really big player?? You’re right- the pelvic floor (and obturator internus if we’re being honest) . ➡️➡️So, how do you figure out if it’s the pelvic floor/OI? . Ask yourself- ➡️ do I have any other symptoms— like bladder leakage, changes in my urine stream, difficulty with BMs, or changes in s3xual function (pain, or**sm or others). ➡️ Has my musculoskeletal function been assessed? If your provider has done an internal exam- ask- what did you feel in my muscles? Remember, healthy muscles shouldn’t hurt. ➡️ Have I ever fallen on my tailbone or buttock? . And if you’re not sure— go see a pelvic PT to help you figure things out! Sometimes identifying the problem is key to feeling better!! . #pelvicfloordysfunction #pelvicpain #pelvicPT #pelvicfloor #sciatica #lowbackpain #prostatitis #chronicprostatitis #vulvodynia #chronicUTIs

Osteoporosis prevention tips
It’s #worldosteoporosisday !! Do you know the magic numbers for bone health?? 🦴🦴🦴 All this week I’m focusing on better bone health awareness and what we can do to stop #osteoporosis before it starts These are a few evidence based steps we can take to optimise our skeletons! 👾5 prunes a day: prunes have been shown to potentially prevent and reverse bone mass loss. I like to chop mine up and have them in my porridge with some sesame seeds (200x the calcium of dairy!) 😴 Sleep is essential for healthy bones!! According to the research, women who slept less than five hours/ night had a 22% higher risk of low bone mineral density and a 63% higher risk of having op of the hip!! (It’s why I did a whole module on menopausal #sleep skills in my Female Hormonal Health course) 🦵 50 single leg hops/ day (building up gradually from a few multidirectional hops to a total of 50 hops each leg/day) in women aged 55-70 - femoral neck BMD increased significantly, without any joint issues, over a six month period 🦴🦴🦴 Some easy lifestyle #bonehealth hacks that we can consider to prevent, halt and maybe even reverse #osteoporosis As always, talk to your healthcare pro to see which of these suggestions might work best for you! 🦴🦴🦴 As always, online course info in my bio ❤️❤️❤️ #menopause #bone #bonehealth #osteoporosis #womenshealth #knowledgeispower #celebratemuliebrity
Who do we need to talk to about bone health? 🏃♀️ Young female athletes who aren’t ovulating/menstruating regularly, maybe because of RED-S 🧍♀️Young women who aren’t active enough to reach their peak bone mass by their mid 20’s 💃 Peri menopausal women with normal bone mass/ mild bone changes (osteopenia) 🤷♀️ People with a clinical diagnosis of osteoporosis without any history of fractures 🤦♀️ People with more advanced bone changes, usually having sustained fractures, often at the wrist, hip or spine 🦴 🦴 🦴 Did you know we can lose up to 20% of our bone mass in the first five years post menopause? That HT works optimally for bone health in this window of opportunity? That HT isn’t enough by itself - we need to focus on #bone healthy nutrition (prunes, sesame seeds, yoghurt), exercise (strength, balance, flexibility), stress management (cortisol is bad for bone health!) and good sleep hygiene (women who sleep less than 5 hours a night have an increased risk of fracture) And of course bladder (urgency = rushing, fear of leaking lowers exercise participation) & bowel function (good gut health is essential to absorb nutrients) impact bone health too. 🦴🦴🦴 Plenty for us to work with, right?! But the first step is to start the conversation - bone health isn’t always a sexy topic to discuss...but neither is the fact that 20% of women over 60 who fracture their hip are dead within 12 months... 🦴🦴🦴 So that’s the ‘why’...and if you’d like to learn more about the ‘how’ then check out my online Female Hormonal Health course - module 1 is all about the menstruating female and how we can optimise menstrual (and bone!) health..module 3 is a deep dive on menopausal health, esp musculoskeletal, covering muscle, joint & bone health The course link is in my bio - click linktree - and let me know if you have any questions! #bonehealth #osteoporosis #menopause #movementismedicine #foodismedicine #knowledgeispower #celebratemuliebrity

Lidocaine Recall Could Affect Some Bladder (Rescue) Instillations The FDA announced today that Teligent Pharma has issued world wide recall of lidocaine topical solution 4% because they found, at 18 months, that it was far stronger than originally intended.

Absolutely love Danny’s art work! Check out the femoral triangle! 💕 Some highlights and fun facts: 🦵Inguinal lymph nodes: “The inguinal lymph node can be subdivided into the superficial and deep lymph nodes and collectively drains the a**l ca**l (below the pectinate line), the skin below the umbilicus, lower extremity, sc***um, v***a, g***s p***s, and cl****is. The lymph node's primary function is to filter for harmful substances as lymphatic fluids travel through its cortex, paracortex, and medulla” (Bui, 2021) 🦵Femoral neurovascular bundle: The femoral artery, vein, nerve run together. There can injury to this bundle during total hip replacement surgery or prolonged positions during childbirth (typically on back with legs help up and compressed). 🦵Femoral nerve: When the femoral nerve gets compressed or injured during childbirth, symptoms (of the birthing person- not baby) often present as: quadriceps weakness (particularly with walking backwards), reduced sensation in the front of the leg, and sometimes pain. The good news is that recovery can be up to 70% (or more in other studies) and can take a few months or up to a year (Hollis, 2019). * All of the patients I’ve seen with femoral neuropathy from childbirth recovered fully within months. 🦵🦵🦵🦵🦵 Repost @dannyquirkartwork Check out his cool page!! ・・・ Newest piece all #clean ed up and #label ed showing the #anatomy of the Femoral Triangle, and the #painting in its entirety. #art #anatomicalart #bodypainting #bodypaint #latex #acrylicpainting #markers #education #masage #physiotherapy #physicaltherapy #yoga #bodyart #dannyquirk @dannyquirkartwork #femoral #femoralnerve #femoraltriangle #pelvicguru #pelvicglobal #hernia #pelvichealth #neuropathy #childbirthinjury #pelvicpt #pelvicot
