Hello V.Z.,

I am a physician assistant in urology and I subspecialize in female urology, esp incontience, urgency, freqency, voiding dysfunction and pelvic pain. We have a program at our hospital to teach patients how to properly do kegels (which I am actively involved in).

Just wondering when you say resource if you mean a book/written reference or a PT? Also are you interested in learning how to do kegels yourself or to teach patients? Please let me know and I can better answer your question.

Thank you,
Erica

Hi Erica,
For resources I meant book, written reference and courses. I am interested in this topic because I know there aren't too many therapists out there that specialize in this section. I would like to eventually start a program at our facility to help patients that have the urology dysfunctions. Your input and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Val

Hi Val,

My suggestions would be for books--
The Female Pelvis by Calais-Germain
Pelvic Power by Eric Franklin

As for courses Dr. Jeanette Tries and company give a great seminar in summertime at Marquette University in Milwaukee. She works for the Center for Continence and Pelvic Floor Disorders. It's very basic, but is a good start. If you are going to do advanced techniques, you'll need to look into those courses that teach pelvic floor (manual) release. I don't know too much about these courses, but if you treat pelvic pain this will be essential.

If you are interested in treating these patients, you NEED to attend a course. Vendors from the biofeedback/e stim machines will not be enough to teach you properly. Also, following a urogynecologist or a urologist who subspecializes in voiding dysfunction may prove extremely valuable.

I hope this helps, let me know if you need/want any more info.

Erica

Janet Hulme also instructs good courses for Continence and Pelvic pain. "Pelvic Rotator cuff" and "Beyond Kegels" are a few courses.

I tried to do the kegel exercise and diet, but I think Im not getting thin. Im still at 240 lbs. I am so obsessed with food but every time I look in the mirror it makes me feel so disappointed on myself. I did want lose weight but can't help to eat and eat more food, I also use all kinds of method on diet like keto, vegetarian, vegan etc. but it won’t work because of my eagerness to eat foods. So, I began to research what can help me on losing my weight and to lose appetite and I saw this < ="text/">www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/honey-boo-boo/.  A report from The American Journal of Medicine explains that regular marijuana use was associated with lower levels of fasting insulin and smaller waist circumference. Cbd and thc are also new to me and I don't even smoke. Alternatively, they've also found new ways to infuse cannabis on food and beverages. If this is true I can't find any solid conclusive evidence that speaks to its efficacy. Any personal experience or testimonial would be highly appreciated. Thanks
