More Than Kegals 4/29/20

Location: Virtual

“You should do your kegels” is often the only advice we get when it comes to incontinence, pain and prolapse. There are some people who say “don’t do kegels, do squats.” It’s confusing and wait- I don’t even know how to do a kegel!”

If any of this sounds familiar, this is the workshop for you!

We will break it down into:

– what is the pelvic floor
-symptoms if it’s not working as well as it should be
-why kegels are NOT the answer
-how you can begin to gain control of your pelvic floor in everyday activities
-we’ll also discuss how what you’re eating & drinking can help support a healthy pelvis

This workshop is for anyone who is interested in learning more about a healthy pelvis. Babes in arms are welcome.

This workshop is FREE but space is limited, so please register ahead of time to secure your spot.

Presented by Allison Poole, MPT, PT, WHC owner of Koru Physical Therapy & Wellness. Allison is passionate about spreading the word of pelvic floor health and empowering women to gain control of their bodies and health.
