We can’t tell you how many women we’ve spoken to about pelvic floor PT who had no idea it even existed. This, a therapy that should be STANDARD care for every single woman after childbirth is an unknown to so many women it could help.
Kendra recently sat down to interview our dear friend Dr. Kenael Segal, Pelvic Floor PT and Women’s Health Advocate of Lotus Physical Therapy. She de-mystifies some of the most common questions we hear about pelvic floor PT including…what is it??!!
In this video we chat about:
What is pelvic floor physical therapy??
Why is it so important?
Who would benefit from seeing a pelvic floor physical therapist?
What happens during a pelvic floor physical therapy appointment?
And the most asked question: what is the internal exam like??
We hope it can shine some light on this very important method of therapy for postpartum women, and encourage you to seek out Pelvic Floor PT if you need it too!
