Fiona McMahon, DPT The number of Americans who deal with constipation issues is massive (4 million!)! It seems like every time I mention that Iâ€™m a pelvic floor physical therapist, another friend of a friend pulls me aside with bowel movement concerns. Why is it that so many people have issues? And more importantly â€“ what can we do about it? This is the topic of our next Pelvic Health 101 seminar on October 20th at 7pm. Not only will constipation be discussed but other bowel conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, fecal incontinence, bloating and hemorrhoids will be addressed. The lecture will also go in depth on the role of fiber, water intake, toilet posture and pelvic floor muscles in having a successful bowel movement. You will even go home with easy techniques that you can implement immediately to help you get that smooth move! Donâ€™t miss out on this FREE event â€“ itâ€™s a MUST for anyone who struggles on the porcelain throne. Seats are going fast! Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
