Happy Sunday!

Can you all spot my morning helpers?? 🤣

After helping hundreds of women during various stages of life, I've realized that as women, we don't know enough about our bodies - especially as it relates to the pelvic floor.

With this limited understanding, pelvic floor dysfunction may be overlooked or even worse, considered normal.

Start building your awareness and connection to your pelvic floor today. ❤











In many countries, females automatically receive after childbirth.

In the US, females often have to request care and find practitioners on their own. Once they do find help, they're often enraged, wishing someone had mentioned their problems can be addressed with .

Each new mom DESERVES to have a postpartum screening with a pelvic health physical therapist. In addition to assessing pelvic health, by coming into your home, can observe you interact with your baby to give you tips and feedback on things like how you lift them, posture while nursing, and more.

Try it out. There's so much to learn and you don't have to do it alone!

We only have pre-teens and teens in the house, so our furry baby, Chola, helped out with this one...I think you all get the idea. 😂

Creating a shelf with your hips and stomach for kiddos, like I'm doing in the first picture, can lead to aches and pains but also pelvic floor dysfunction. Can you see the arch in my low back? This is a common strategy in the postpartum phase but such an easy one to adjust.

Start using those abdominals to stand upright - like a string is being pulled from the crown of your head - stack your ribs over your pelvis, and center your child's weight to alleviate these issues. Trust me, your back and pelvic floor with thank you. ❤

Cycling Do's and Dont's.

With the increased number of cyclists and Pelotoners since the pandemic began, I've seen more and more pelvic floor issues.

Pelvic organ prolapse, nerve compression, erectile dysfunction, pain and numbness in the saddle area, and ge***al arousal disorders are some of the issues present among avid and recreational cyclists and are generally related to poor pressure distribution in the saddle.

Try these few tips, along with raising your handlebars and getting up/out of the saddle during your rides, to keep your pelvic floor happy and healthy!

With the increased number of cyclists and Pelotoners since the pandemic began, I've seen more and more pelvic floor issues.

Disclaimer: If education based around vaginas, anuses, perineums, sexual activity, vaginal dilators, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, constipation, vaginal deliveries, Cesarean deliveries, obstetric anal sphincter injuries...you catch my drift...offends you, please look the other way. The Zia Physio page is not the page for you, I can promise that.

For those who recognize there are issues that develop in our most sensitive and intimate areas (for 1 in 4 women!), I appreciate you and your support. These concerns are not discussed enough, and I intend to change that and help as many women as I can.

Happy holidays and kindest regards. ❤️

If all you want for Christmas is pain free tampon use, gyn exams, or sex, then maybe!

This is not a sex toy friends. But, your business is your business...😂 This device is called a vaginal trainer in the pelvic health physical therapy world and comes in many sizes.

If insertion of a finger, pen*s, sex toy, speculum, tampon, etc. is painful or even impossible, it generally has to do with overactive pelvic floor muscles. This trainer is not meant to stretch your vagina...instead, it helps "re-train" the muscles to relax, elongate, lengthen, etc. when something is inserted or moving in and out of the vaginal canal. What's more, it can be useful for minimizing the fear associated with vaginal penetration.

Pain and fear associated with these activities can be addressed with pelvic health physical therapy and most likely some work with a vaginal trainer like this one.

Zia Physio is here for you this Christmas and always!

I was just chatting with a patient about the advice she received as she was leaving the hospital after delivery. In her case, as is the case with A LOT of postpartum women, this was the last thing she needed to do!

Oftentimes, the only pelvic floor advice we receive is to "Do your Kegels."

BUT! If you have overactive, tight, or shortened pelvic floor muscles, Kegels may actually worsen symptoms and are not appropriate. Always, always, always...length before strength. When, and if, strengthening is appropriate, you need to make sure you're doing those Kegels correctly.

Reach out to a pelvic health PT if you have concerns related to Kegel advice - we're here for you!

Yes, that's right!

BUT there are certain positions that will help your core function better and keep you symptom-free. Generally, sitting isn't one of them.

Your body is made to move and sitting most of the day is not going to be great for your health or for your body.

Here's my advice as you head into another work week...Move often and keep moving!

10/07/2020

1. Wear supportive running shoes to reduce impact forces on the ground. Consider visiting or in the DMV area to find the right pair for you.
2. Move forward! Avoid bobbing up and down and push off using your glutes (tush muscles) to extend your legs behind you.
3. Consider combining fast running with walking. Intervals, yay! Increasing your speed works your glutes more effectively and that protects your low back and pelvic floor from injury.
4. Tuck your chin slightly and lengthen your neck with a gentle forward lean. This will help you activate your core muscles.
5. Reduce your stride length and take more steps. Keep your hips above your feet to avoid excessive joint loading.
6. Keep arms tucked by your side to help you activate your glutes and core.

Running is an amazing exercise - just make it count! Try to focus on these steps the next time you head out.

Consider being assessed for your running style and technique. can help!
