What Research Should We Care About? Interview with Laurel of FEM Unfolding (Part 1)

We dive into all the nerdy things with Dr. Laurel Proulx of Fem Unfolding; research, clinical Ethos, and more.

5 Reminders When Treating Chronic Pain

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!

In Part 1 we take a deep dive into Laurel's background and research.

She's spent much of the last few years working on her PhD and doing extensive research into the actual mechanisms of what we're doing in pelvic PT - the actual foundations of our profession!

We hear why clinical considerations need to guide research, how long research actually takes to complete, and why we DON'T need more interventional studies before completing foundational research.

Laurel is a pelvic PT, researcher, student and teacher and has seen all different sides of our pelvic PT profession. She's the creator of the Postpartum Connect(TM) course, bridging the gap between pelvic PT and high-level exercise. You can find Laurel at fem.unfolding on IG, on email and check out her website at
