Beyond Kegels - Elevating Pelvic Health with Functional Exercises

Feb 13, 2024 - 20:00 (EST)
1 hour


Pelvic Physical Therapists excel at instructing patients on early rehabilitation exercises, however, they often feel stuck with exercise progression beyond Kegels and bridges.

Patients may plateau in their recovery, get bored of treatment or self-discharge if they are not meeting their functional movement goals.

Even if a patient is not an athlete, they still require adequate full-body strength to complete activities of daily living and recreational activities, which can include lifting and carrying babies and toddlers, hiking, dancing, returning to fitness classes or running.
