If We're NOT Just About Kegels, What Are We About?

Updated: Feb 14

Our profession has made a huge shift in the last decade. We've moved away from believing our specialty was all about Kegels and voluntary control of the pelvic floor.



There's so much more we can be doing to help patients!


If We're NOT Just About Kegels, What Are We About?
 

Pelvic PT Rising: The pelvic health tools to make you a better clinician and/or a more successful business owner. We want every single pelvic health practitioner to be more confident and successful in your practice and career!

  • Clinical Courses: Game-changing online courses to make you more confident, challenge your thinking and improve patient outcomes

  • Business Resources: Helping 500+ pelvic health practitioners confidently start, grow and build their dream business!

 

In fact, only 4% of those surveyed said they prescribed Kegels or reverse Kegels to almost all of their patients. 10 years ago, it would have been almost 100%.

But while a lot of us know what we aren't for (Kegels for everyone!) we don't really know what we are supposed to replace them with. We talk about awareness, coordination, half-contractions, reverse Kegels, breathwork and more.


The craziest part? We don't even have the language to describe what we mean! What is (and is not) a 'Kegel'? What is (and is not) pelvic floor strengthening?

And if we're confused, you know patients are totally lost!


Check out the 'sode (and the course, coming soon!) to learn more!
