PE #020 Women’s Health with Lori Forner

by David Pope

Is “peeing while you work out” in Crossfit or any other type of exercise ok? When does your patients pelvic floor need more muscle activation, and when does it need less work? Does Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) need addressing, and if so, how?

In episode 20 of the Physio Edge podcast, I talk to Lori Forner, a Physiotherapist with a special interest in Women’s Health in Brisbane, Queensland, about all of these topics, and more, including:

  • The role of Physio’s that specialise in Women’s Health, and when it is a good idea to refer to one
  • Common conditions seen clinically
  • When real-time ultrasound can be used to assess pelvic floor function, and what you should see on US
  • Pelvic floor overactivity and underactivity
  • Treatment for SUI
  • Antenatal and postnatal advice
  • Advice on exercising during and after pregnancy
  • Much more
