Description

With all of the systemic changes, it’s no wonder that pregnancy and menopause are challenging times for many women.  As a healthcare professional, you need to be aware of the hormonal changes and their impact on the musculoskeletal system.

With over a decade of experience in pelvic floor therapy, Liz Frey, FCAMPT, will unpack the hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and menopause and shine a focused light on their impacts on the pelvis.   You’ll explore:  

  • Why the inner core is often the missing piece of the puzzle   
  • How to connect with the diaphragm and pelvic floor to target incontinence, prolapse and dyspareunia  
  • Exercise interventions to maximize strength and mobility 

Filled with evidence-informed techniques you can use to optimize function, this is a “must attend” presentation for all healthcare professionals who work with women!
