Are we still using the biceps analogy for the pelvic floor? Trying to explain the length-tension relationship? There's a better way!
In the Essential Pelvic Strengthening: Not Your Mama's Kegels course I teach we should be explaining the pelvic floor more as a trampoline.
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!
It's a more nuanced analogy that helps explain resting tone, how important the surrounding structure is, and how the pelvic floor behaves in a more involuntary fashion.
Check out the 'sode for why I think it's a better analogy for ourselves and our patients!
Essential Pelvic Strengthening
If you'd like to learn more about how the pelvic floor is much more like a trampoline - along with standing assessments, how to make ANY exercise a pelvic floor exercise, and move beyond just an Isolationist (Kegel-based) approach - make sure to check out the Essential Pelvic Strengthening (www.pelvicptrising.com/kegels). We hope you join us there and join the Pelvic PT 2.0 Movement!
As Nicole said in the full episode:
"If we start teaching people an incorrect way, we start to think like that, and that biceps analogy just does not work." - Nicole Cozean
