Good morning! joining from Northern Minnesota
Hello All! Joining from South Jersey!
Is everyone here a PT or do we have other professionals?
thanks for doing this Lauren!!
Northern Virginia here. Thanks to Lauren for making this happen!
no problem, I could use the distraction!
Hi from Alexandria!
Northern Virginia/Alexandria Sex Med Provider here. Thank you Lauren!!!
In case you have any issues with your microphone, please feel free to post your questions here :)
Super helpful, thank you!
I am a PT, and also 7 weeks postpartum. I confess I took my first run two days ago. I was surprised how deconditioned I already was (previously did several half marathons, didn't really run during pregnancy...) From an aerobic standpoint I already feel like I really need something productive to do...
I understand the tissue healing component, but also find it a little disheartening :(
Hang in there Elizabeth. I am 7 months post partum and followed these guidelines. I did a running assessment with video a month ago or so and my hips are still weak, especially one-side vs the other
Congratulations Elizabeth! You're not alone. So many of my postpartum patients feel this way. Thankfully you
I’ll probably chat - my internet is spotty. I was a marathon/half runner before.
are in the right field to work on it
I think this is where we can use Low Impact High Intensity Interval training.
Here's a link to the guidelines again for anyone new entering the call now:https://mailchi.mp/38feb9423b2d/returning-to-running-postnatal-guideline
Not research based, but I would feel elliptical after speed walking but before jogging, symptom driven
sorry wrong text ignore that
Does anyone do the GH + PB measure to help with individualizing guidance.?
laura-thanks for that...you just gave my husband the best laugh
so lets get into vaginas
Forgive my ignorance Lindsay what is GH + PB?
it is from the POP-Q
mentioned testing in standing?
that is a tall order, even for super fit people
I gotta be on kid duty at 11:30. Lauren- you're amazing for organizing!
there will be a recording!
Pelvic PT Huddle is correct
what is Nicole's last name?
I often use biofeedback to work with patients on timing with exercise type activities to train PFM - not a constant hold. Like squats, step ups, lunges, hops, etc
Good idea Megan!
Haven’t seen anything - we need the research!
I am a G2P2 runner with grade II cystocele and I’ll volunteer to be studied! haha
Megan I am a G1P1 triathlete/runner with grad1 cystocele and rectocele-so we can add another person...right???
Let’s get that n up!
agree! I get patients in a forward trunk lean and anterior pelvic tilt to help facilitate anterior pelvic floor. a lot of female runners run leaning back which prob doesn’t help that.
That was from a recent study - focusing on posterior cues is more effective for women than men.
Thanks Karen Snowden! Can you share on the PPSIG FB page.
Jenna and Claire are awesome!!!
Claire - your name is listed different. What is your name and location? So you serve alcohol during the fittings? (Just seeing your counter top). :)
Awe thanks Jessica! You're amazing too!
LOL Karen! Claire is my business partner. We are Transcend Healthcare at 113 Oronoco Street in Old Town Alexandria. www.TranscendHealthcareDMV.com We don't serve alchol in the office (during patient hours) but patients will at least get coffee, tea, or sparkling water before a fitting haha
LOL - Dang - was thinking it was one stop shopping for all. JK. LOL
Maybe that will be part of our new business plan hahaha
We do provide anti-anxiety and pain meds for IUD insertions and other procedures, maybe we should add cocktails for pessary fittings
Jennifer - hi! I'm also in Chicago, would love to know the name of your practice!
Hi Karen Mestek, the practice is Vitality Women’s PT and wellness. One location in elmhurst and one in the city in Lakeview
Thank you! :-)
That’s fascinating Jennifer Hungate! You should do the research!!!! (An Ariana)
We may have some ideas in the works and a potential proposal for a CSM session ;) Have to wait and see
Awesome. Really interesting stuff!
Super interesting, thanks Jennifer
That is so fascinating!
You should study and publish this!!!
Such a cool clinic! Alright - my youngest is awake will watch the rest of the talk later! Have a great weekend everyone!
Thanks for sharing!

the podcast bodies first episode has information about hormones on birth control (testosterone specifically) leading to painful sex. not 100% relevant to this, but very interesting and impacts plan of care. information from OBGYN.
Here is another article that you might helpful - Task-specific differences in respiration-related activation of deep and superficial pelvic floor muscles - R. Aljuraifani, R.E. Stafford, Paula Hodges
Elizabeth, have you followed or heard any podcasts by Dr. Rachel Rubin? She talks about testosterone levels in women a lot. There was a recent study on this that was kind of inconclusive but it’s all very interesting!
For everyone who just registered/entered this webinar, please note that a recording of this webinar will be available by end of today. We will send you all a recording copy.
I see a ton of patients with painful penetration due to low testosterone from birth control pills and spirinolactone
spironolactone - interesting!
