While a problem for many, educators are notorious for having pelvic floor issues as they tend to disregard their body's signals while taking care of the needs of their student.  Addressing their own bodies needs is often squeezed into brief moments of opportunity, convenient to the days schedule (by the bell), or only when the body demands attention. Awareness of the important role the pelvic floor plays in overall wellness is poorly understood by the public. Use of Poise and Depends are often considered a normal consequence of having kids. Many women, (and men too), suffer needlessly from pelvic floor dysfunction as few have ever been offered an alternative to simply dealing with it or surgery. Over the last several years, physical therapists have been at the forefront in the research and treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction with great success, revealing that 80% of those who present with dysfunction can be treated via conservative means. Understanding the roles and functional importance of the pelvic floor is integral to wellness. This is information that everyone should know as while many pelvic floor issues are COMMON, they are NOT NORMAL!!  You will be surprised, you will laugh and you will leave wishing you had known this stuff years ago!
