Our Canadian PT and PhysioYoga colleague, Shelly Prosko, shared this blog post with us, and we appreciate her wisdom. "Self-care" has become a term tossed around with ease, but as Shelly notes it caan easily become another "to-do list" item to be checked from the list.
From her blog: "I do believe there is one consistent feature of self-care, and it is self-compassion. Self-compassion includes having a clear non-judgemental awareness of your needs and having the courage, kindness and love to meet those needs, including asking for support when needed.
We love working with other Health Providers and know that teamwork gives our patients the best outcomes! Thanks to Dr. Christopher Carr for inviting us to share on his "Health Nuts" podcast about Pelvic Floor health for women, men, and children. Listen on these links:
Why Are We Still Talking About Incontinence?
This week is World Continence Week and I am taking a few minutes to write about why this is so important! Why are we still talking about this?
Because urinary incontinence is a big deal!
“Summer-time, and the living is easy” as the song goes, except when your child is not able to do activities and take trips and visits because of bedwetting and daytime wetting, and because of embarrassment about wetting and pull-ups. At Embody, in addition to working with adults, Rebecca Meehan PT WCS PYT works with kids and their parents to address pediatric pelvic floor problems. Summer time and no school schedule is a great time to begin to work on resolving bedwetting, daytime wetting and dribbling, constipation and encopresis (fecal incontinence).
Susan talks about HER story... how Hurricane Katrina destroyed HER home and health and how she reassessed and rebuilt.
Susan had the opportunity to share "what she learned" in 2016 and some of her goals for 2017 with the Healthy Wealthy Smart podcast.. This blog also has insight and comments from a few more of our wonderful PT friends.
Rebecca had the opportunity to speak and develop a poster presentation for other health professionals based on a case review of one of her patients turned student. Many thanks to her client for allowing Rebecca to share the results she gained through PT and Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MYT). This is an interview that discusses why we use MTY at Embody PT and what we are able to gain through an integrative approach to health, wellness, and function.
