Do you find yourself searching for or running to a bathroom? Do you find yourself crossing your legs when you sneeze or cough? Do you have pain during intercourse or pregnancy? North Arkansas Regional Medical Center (NARMC) wants you to feel confident in your pelvic health and help you find answers to these questions, The Rehabilitation Services Department is offering a Pelvic Health Webinar on Wednesday, July 7th at 12:00 noon.
“Although pelvic health can be a sensitive and sometimes delicate topic, we strive to be your preferred resource by providing a comfortable, safe, and trusting atmosphere,” says Dr. Jennifer Birdsong, DPT at NARMC.
NARMC’s Pelvic Health Physical Therapy program specializes in evaluating and treating an individual’s pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor muscles that are weak, tight or not working in a coordinated fashion can cause urinary incontinence (leaky bladder), general pelvic pain, constipation, sexual dysfunction, and pain during or after pregnancy. NARMC pelvic health therapists are ideal providers to teach individuals how to gain control over their bladder symptoms and live pain-free. Treatments are generally very effective and take place in a private setting.
“Our goal is to improve the strength and function of the pelvic floor through nonsurgical techniques designed to alleviate pain, weakness, and other dysfunction. We are passionate about increasing our patients’ confidence and quality of life. We hope this webinar will raise awareness and educate our community about their treatment options and how we can serve them best,” said Allie Curtis, PTA at NARMC.
The webinar will be hosted by Dr. Jennifer Birdsong, DPT and Allie Curtis, PTA, who are both educated and trained in pelvic floor physical therapy.
