I’ve got to admit, pelvic health isn’t an area that I know a lot about. But I have often wondered if I was missing something in my athletes. So I really recommend that you become more aware of pelvic health issues and find someone in your area that you can refer patients to in the future.
In this episode, I’m joined by Amanda Olson, a pelvic health physical therapist, to talk about some of the symptoms of pelvic health issues, signs that we can look out for as sport physical therapists, how to collaborate with specialists in your area, and working with postpartum patients that want to return back to the gym or their sport.
Amanda is a pelvic health physical therapist. She is the president and chief clinical officer of Intimate Rose where she develops pelvic health products and education. She is passionate about empowering women and men with pelvic health issues including pelvic pain, incontinence, pregnancy, and post-partum issues.
Dr. Olson teaches internationally on various pelvic health topics including pelvic floor dysfunction in runners. She has written newspaper and magazine articles on pelvic floor dysfunction, and running and also authored the book Restoring the Pelvic Floor For Women.
