I am really excited to share this information-rich podcast with you. I am chatting with Kristin Sapienza, a licensed physical therapist and the founder of FemFirstHealth. Kristin specializes in customizing treatment plans for each of her patients with a special focus on women’s health, specifically treating pelvic floor dysfunction.
My chat with Kristin offers so many awesome takeaways, but here are a few of my favorites:
Though pelvic floor dysfunction is often associated with childbirth, many people – men and women -- have a tight pelvic floor and could benefit from physical therapy. We’re often conditioned to think that it’s ok to “deal with the pain” stemming from pelvic floor issues, but the reality is that you don’t have to live with discomfort. Pilates, yoga and swimming are really helpful in regaining functional strength in your pelvic floor and supporting your body’s overall strength. Because it’s good to have constant change in your body’s movements, diversifying your exercises is a key to good health. Healthy living means allowing yourself to recharge your batteries at least once a week.
