Welcome to Pelvic Zen, a show designed to promote pelvic floor wellness in men and women. My name is Caitlin McCurdy-Robinson, and I will be the host of the show. I am a Physical Therapist at Sullivan Physical Therapy in Austin, TX. Our clinic specializes in women’s and men’s health conditions related to the pelvic floor. Examples of pelvic floor dysfunctions include: urinary and fecal incontinence, prolapse, constipation, chronic pelvic pain, sexual pain and other sexual related issues, and prenatal/postpartum pain. While all of these conditions are common, many people suffer in silence because they do not realize treatments are available or because they are embarrassed to discuss their symptoms with a healthcare professional. Whether you are experiencing symptoms and don't know what to do next or you are already seeking treatment for your symptoms, this show aims to provide information and resources that will be helpful to you in your recovery process. ************************************************************************************************************************ This show will air once a month.
