“I talk about the pelvic ﬂoor all the time. As one of the pioneer physical therapists specializing in pelvic floor dysfunction, I have been treating patients afflicted with these disorders for over twenty years. I have seen how the exercises and therapies I prescribe — breathing, relaxing, strengthening, stretching, toning, diet — don’t just heal the disorders but can prevent them from occurring in the ﬁrst place. At the same time, these exercises and therapies can ward off the effects of aging while enhancing patients’ lives immeasurably.”
