As a pelvic health patient, I definitely feel as though your podcast has helped me both mentally and physically in ways my current health professionals haven’t been able to. I love that you bring up actual examples from your experiences with patients
As a new pelvic PT this has been like finding gold! I have listened to every episode and love every single one. I have learned so much and feel so much more confident talking with patients and also just having a wealth of resources to continue to grow and learn. Plus you can tell they enjoy the interviews and the topics being discussed! Thank you so much!!! I highly recommend this podcast to PTs, patients, and everyone in between!
My favorite pelvic health podcast! I can relate on so many levels as a pelvic PT, and I love hearing from all of these “famous” therapists! I literally learn something new every time I listen and am able to take that new thought process directly into the clinic and apply it. Keep up the great work Jess!!!
