25-30 years ago, we were barely talking about the pelvic floor, and when we did, it was usually related to (whispered) urinary leakage, kegels, and Great-aunt Edna and her need to stop at every bathroom between her home and around the block!

A (fun and frank) discussion with Densie LaRosa and Embody Physiotherapy.

Is persistent pain interfering with your ability to move, function, and enjoy activities that are missing from your life? Have you spent countless hours wondering and fretting over what your next move might be? Have you tried and failed at attempts to become more active only to find yourself right back where you started from? Perhaps it is time to take a different approach to begin to change your movement patterns and change your life!

September 23 is the Fall Equinox, a day of “balance” when the earth’s axis tilts neither towards or away from the sun and is nearly perpendicular to the sun’s rays (thank you Mr. Lott and Earth Science class!). Our bodies and minds are constantly searching for the “balance point”, that point between effort and ease that allows us to stand upright, lift, walk, jump, run, and be aligned comfortably in our day to day lives. We require balance for movement, and muscular coordination creates physical balance. We also benefit from mental and emotional balance, sometimes more difficult to achieve, but they will improve with practice and exercise, just like our physical abilities.
