PHL (V) - Pelvic Floor Health for Women: Truths and Misconceptions (6:30pm ET, May 6, 2024)


Pelvic Floor Health for Women:
Truths and Misconceptions
Meghan Tierney Lash, PT, MPT, OCS

Monday, May 6, 2024
6:30pm - 7:45pm Eastern Time
Open to All - Virtually!


A simple guide for women of all ages to learn more about pelvic floor issues - what they are, what causes them, and how to prevent them from happening.  Many things such as urinary leakage are considered “normal” consequences of aging, and we are going to explain why that is not necessarily the case!  We’ll also discuss other common pelvic floor issues such as urinary urgency, constipation, fecal incontinence, pain with intercourse, back and hip pain. 

We’ll touch on anatomy and posture and discuss the role of the pelvic floor muscles. We’ll pay a lot of attention to proper bowel and bladder mechanics, as well as the role that posture and other comorbidities can play in pelvic floor function.  The focus will be on prevention, but we will discuss how physical therapy can help with some common issues.  We will also outline what might warrant a call to a specialist.  

There will also be time for Q&A throughout Meghan's presentation.  This session will be recorded.
